Recipe Tips & Variations

  • Substitute 1/2 cup ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing for the cream cheese, if desired.
  • In a hurry? Melt the cream cheese on the stovetop with the buffalo sauce. Stir in the chicken and celery. If desired, top with shredded cheddar cheese and broil.
  • Use precooked rotisserie chicken if you don’t want to use canned chicken.
  • Be sure to use room temperature cream cheese so it will melt more evenly.
  • Add in extra hot sauce or a few pinches of crushed red chili flakes for a really hot dip.
  • Use half of the amount of buffalo sauce for a milder dip.

Storing & Freezing

Storing: Store the buffalo dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Warm in the microwave or on the stove to heat through.

Freezing: I don’t recommend freezing this dip.

FAQ

What goes well with buffalo dip?

This dip is so versatile and can be served with almost anything! Some of my favorites include celery sticks, carrot sticks, bell pepper sticks, tortilla chips, crackers and bagel chips.

What are good toppings for buffalo dip?

Cheddar cheese melted on top or blue cheese crumbles sprinkled on top are both delicious! I also like thinly sliced green onions on top.

Can I make buffalo dip in a slow cooker?

Yes! Add all of the ingredients in the slow cooler and turn on low for 3 hours.

Can I bake buffalo chicken dip in the oven?

Definitely! Cut the cream cheese into cubes. Add them to a sauce pan with the buffalo sauce. Once the cream cheese is melted, stir in the chicken and celery. Transfer to a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and broil for 2-3 minutes.

What type of cream cheese should I use?

For best results, use a full fat cream cheese. Reduced fat cream cheeses tend to separate during cooking.
