The first time I tried Buffalo Chicken Dip was at a girl’s night/get together. I found the recipe from somewhere and decided to make it as my contribution to the party. It was a definite hit and honestly, I have not made the recipe since then.

That is until recently when I tried to make the recipe from the ingredients that I remembered. It is actually quite simple.

  • Chicken
  • Hot Sauce
  • Cream Cheese
  • Cheese
  • Dressing

For the dressing, I decided to add in half blue cheese dressing for a bit of punch and some ranch for the creamy herb flavor. For the chicken, I opted to shred a rotisserie chicken that I picked up from the grocery store. This made things so much easier and also provided enough leftovers from dinner. Double win!

Once all of the ingredients are mixed together, you simply place into the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. The top will be bubbly and golden. The cheese will be melty and smooth. This is perfect to serve with vegetables such as celery and carrot sticks, as well as your favorite chips and crackers. I decided to serve it with all of those, along with some plantain chips that provided the perfect bit of sweetness that pairs well with the creamy cheese dip.
