I don’t think I’ve ever eaten Buffalo wings, but from my first bite of this Buffalo Chicken Dip, I was an instant fan. I have been making this since 2010 and it’s always a hit!

When my friend, Sally, made this dip for a Labor Day party, the men hovered around the dish until it was devoured. I found this recipe for Frank’s Redhot version and modified for a party just weeks later.  Hearty and cheesy, I haven’t met anyone who didn’t adore this buffalo chicken dip!Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe | A cheesy, spicy chicken dip with the flavors of buffalo chicken wings!

Tips for Making Buffalo Chicken Dip:

  • I use a rotisserie chicken to make this super easy. I put the hubby on the task of removing the chicken meat from the carcass. He’s a good sport and always helps in the kitchen, but the number of questions he asked was comical! I promise, it’s simple!
  • Softened cream cheese is spread on the bottom of a baking dish, then the blue cheese salad dressing, hot sauce, cheese, and chicken were mixed together, spread over the cream cheese,  and baked. Set the cream cheese out on the counter about an hour before making to allow it to soften
  • I used mozzarella to give a gooey factor to this dip, but blue cheese is another popular alternative.
