Buffalo Chicken Dip It is the perfect sauce for any party! A rich creamy base covered with its flavors inspired by your favorite buffalo wing bakes to a bubbly perfection.
Along with Spinach Artichoke Dip and Jalapeno Popper Dip, this is one of those sauces that people expect me to appear with (may be the only reason they invite me to parties!)
Over the years, I made many versions of this dip, but I realized that until today I had not published only one simple classic buffalo chicken sauce. No additional plugins, no fancy fancies.
I have kept the ingredients to a minimum to make it the easiest to prepare!

Ingredients (and variations)
Hot sauce: I use Frank's Red Hot in this sauce, you can also use homemade buffalo sauce.
Base Cream cheese and sour cream mixed with ranch dressing for flavor. You can use homemade ranch dressing (or blue cheese dressing) and skip sour cream.
Cheddar cheese Sharp cheddar is our favorite, but anything goes. Pepper Jack, Tex-Mex or your favorite pre-grated mix works great here. If you are a lover of blue cheese, sprinkle a handful of crumbs in this sauce before baking.
Cooked chicken Roast chicken or leftover baked chicken makes it easy. If you don't have cooked chicken, poached chicken is an excellent substitute. Canned chicken can be used in a pinch, but is not recommended. The flavor is not the same and tends to tear.
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Sauce
Everyone loves buffalo wings and, of course, buffalo cauliflower, but this buffalo chicken sauce really takes the cake! It is one of our most requested recipes and regardless of the event, the bowl is always clean!
To make buffalo chicken sauce we simply:
- Mixture and put the creamy base
- Add chicken, drizzle with hot sauce
- Upper part with cheese and bake until bubbly.
You can stir the chicken and hot sauce together, but it just means another dirty bowl and you can't feel the difference once baked!
Get prepared: This dive can easily be done 48 hours in advance and refrigerated for perfect party planning.
Use a hand mixer:Using a manual mixer for the cream cheese base is smooth and easy to use!
Feeding a crowd: This recipe can easily be doubled (or tripled) to feed a crowd. It may be necessary to increase the cooking time.
Ingredients: I've kept it simple, but you can add your own favorite ingredients. Blue cheese, green onions, bacon bits, or crispy fried onions are great in this buffalo sauce!
Tailgating: Spread this out in a disposable skillet and cook over indirect heat on the grill. You can also make buffalo chicken sauce in the crock pot.
What to serve with Buffalo chicken sauce
Anything and everything (I could eat it with a spoon). Serve this chicken dip with tortilla chips, crackers, or crostini. To keep itlow carbAdd one side of celery sticks and / or carrot sticks.
