Buffalo Chicken Dip {Recipe}

Let me start off with the fact that you should have to make this dip. It is AMAZING.

A couple of years ago, my family went to a friend’s Halloween party and found this savory dip. It was gone within 20 minutes. I immediately had my girlfriend send me the recipe.  (Thanks Kim!) This quick and easy dip is perfect for bringing to get-togethers, especially for that big game on Sunday.  My favorite part about this dip, other than how delicious it is, is that you can make it ahead of time and freeze it until you’re ready to pop it in the oven. It’s also gluten free!

Last weekend we had a game night with a few friends, so I made this dip to share. It. was. delicious. Did I mention that buffalo wings are my favorite?

Let’s get started! You will need:

-About 1 ½ cups shredded chicken breast (I used the leftovers from a rotisserie chicken)
-1/2 bottle of Franks hot sauce
-1/2 bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
-1/2 block of softened cream cheese
-1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
-Dippers (we use celery sticks and plain pita chips)

**Note: You can easily double this and make it in one large dish or separate and freeze half for when you’re in a pinch**

First add your franks, ranch, and cream cheese together. You can adjust the amount of franks to the spiciness that you choose. It seems like it takes forever, but that cream cheese will blend in.

Add a handful of the shredded cheese. Then add your shredded chicken. If you don’t have a rotisserie chicken handy, cook up some breasts and shred them in your mixer with the paddle attachment.

Mix and then pour it into a baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese and bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until it is nice and bubbly and the cheese is starting to brown. I usually take a paper towel and soak up some of the grease off of the top.

Make sure to let it cool and enjoy. This is one dip that is sure to disappear before your eyes. Get some before it’s gone!
