Buffalo chicken dip isn't just good for an appetizer. At our house, sometimes we eat it as a meal! It's pretty easy to make and only uses a few ingredients. If you like hot sauce and chicken, you're gonna love this recipe! I used a pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts, but you can use canned chicken if you're looking to keep it a little more simple. I definitely think it tastes better with fresh chicken, but I've used canned chicken and it works just fine. I threw in an onion at the last minute to give it a little more flavor.
Here's my recipe for buffalo chicken dip:
*About 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts or 2 large cans of chicken.
*3/4 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
*3/4 cup ranch dressing
*1 8 oz. package cream cheese
*1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
*1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
*1 medium onion (not pictured)--I suggest leaving out the onion if using canned chicken.
*Cook the chicken breasts in a large skillet with 1/2 cup of water. I sprinkled a little salt and pepper on top.
*Dice the onion into small pieces and add to the chicken. Cook until tender.
* While the chicken is cooking, add the other ingredients to a mixing bowl--except leave out 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese to sprinkle on the top later. I actually mix all of my ingredients together in the dish I cook the dip in. Less dishes to wash!
*Make sure the cream cheese is soft or it is hard to mix! I put the foil package in a bowl of warm water and that did the trick.
*Shred the chicken and add it and the sauteed onions to the mix.
*Mix everything good and add the other 1/2 cup of sharp cheese to the top.
*Cook in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Hope you enjoy this delicious buffalo chicken dip recipe!!
