Ultimate Super Bowl Party Appetizer: Buffalo Chicken Dip!

I have made this for several years now and it is always the hit of the party.  I received a request to post this a few weeks back when I mentioned it on Facebook, so here you go!!

Buffalo Chicken Dip


  • 2 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained and rinsed thoroughly {or 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded}
  • 1-2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened {Note - the original recipe calls for 2 packages but I think it tastes just fine with 1.5.  Feel free to add more per your taste}
  • 1 cup Ranch dressing
  • 3/4 cup buffalo sauce {such as Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce®, found near the condiments at the grocery store}
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


  • 1 bunch celery, cleaned and cut into 4 inch pieces
  • Tostitos "scoops" or crackers


Combine chicken, cream cheese, ranch dressing, buffalo sauce and 1 1/4 cup shredded cheese in bowl.  Spread mixture in to baking dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly.  Serve with celery sticks and chips or crackers.

Enjoy, have an amazing weekend!!


  1. this sounds DELICIOUS! thank you thank you for the recipe!! :)

    visit my blog!

  2. I will definitely be making this for Sunday (along with bacon & cheese wrapped tator tots!) Thanks for posting, Jacin!!

  3. i make this for parties and people kill it! i always like it left over the next day ... so yummy!

  4. I just made a version of this yesterday for a potluck. So. Good.

  5. Yay! thanks for posting cous! Also thanks for including the chicken breast portion option, canned chicken creeps me out a little!

  6. Maaaaan, you had to post this the same weekend I order a dress that is slightly too small and I have 10lbs to lose by June? ; )

    This looks so, so yummy. I'll definitely have to try to make it for our next party. I agree with Caitlin, meat in a can weirds me out too.

    Franks is really good too. We use it when we make Buffalo chicken pizza.

  7. I've seen this dip a zillion times and I've never had it. D's cousin sent it to me so I could make it for him & never did. Is this trainer approved??? LOL j/k ;)

  8. this looks soo unhealthy and delicious at the same time - free pass on Superbowl though!!

  9. I bet it's soo good! Have a fun weekend!

  10. i make the exact same one and every single bit of it goes every time! YUM!!!!! (and now i have a craving... )

  11. I keep forgetting the Super Bowl is this weekend-thank you for reminding me! This sounds like a perfect recipe for game day!

  12. I love this recipe!! I am on my way now to go buy Frank's Buffalo Sauce, glad we are on the same wave lenth as far as food! I LOVE that I found your's giving me lots of wedding ideas! :)

  13. Wow this sounds so yummy!!! I will definitely have to write this recipe down and bring it to the next gathering of friends. Thanks so much for sharing ;-))


  14. my fiance had this last year at a party and has not stopped talking about it since! thanks for the recipe : )

    happy weekend!

  15. oooh i love this dip! it's sooo good!

  16. Love this stuff {as does my fiance}! Totally making it tomorrow!

  17. are those chicken in a biscuits??? my favorite! did you know my mom and sister both made this yesterday? They didn't even know the other was making it, lol

  18. Dang that looks good, too bad I didn't get to this before yesterday! I would have taken this to my party... oh well now it's in my recipe collection :)

  19. I make this all the time! I definitely think that using actual chicken breasts is WAAYYY better than canned chicken though.

  20. I am so tempted to try this but I fear I will eat ALL of it and want to make it often.


i love comments!
