One of the things I miss most this year that we are living in the UK is football-I’m a huge college football fan and my alma mater, Clemson University, has been doing so well this year. Go Tigers! We do stream the games via computer here but most of them start in the middle of the night our time! In fact, the playoff game for Clemson actually starts at midnight our time New Year’s Eve (so I will at least see the start of that one!) When we do get to watch the games I love making this Buffalo Chicken Dip. It throws together quickly and is always a hit when shared with a crowd. I think you’ll love it too!
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Dip
This 5 ingredient Buffalo Chicken Dip couldn’t be easier to make! Buffalo Chicken Dip is a mixture of chicken breast meat, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, Frank’s Red Hot sauce, and either blue cheese or ranch dressing. It is mixed and baked to recreate the flavors of buffalo wings being dipped in ranch or blue cheese dressing. As long as you have your Frank’s Red Hot and either Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing you will be good to go! It takes just twenty minutes to bake and five minutes of prep so it’s a very easy dip recipe to make before your guests arrive.
Serve this with tortilla chips, crusty bread, celery, carrots sticks, or pita chips (I have been known to just use a fork as well!) Be careful though, it’s addictive!
Can You Freeze Buffalo Chicken Dip?
I do not recommend baking this dip and then freezing it. The texture is not great when it is heated after freezing. If you want to prep it ahead of time I would mix the ingredients and store in an airtight container. Honestly, though, it is super easy to pull together in less than ten minutes if you used the canned chicken so I don’t think it’s worth it. If you are using your own shredded chicken then possibly it could be worth it to mix ahead of time and freeze or just defrost your chicken before assembling the dip day of
