There’s a reason why everyone loves Buffalo Chicken Dip! This spicy party food appetizer is full of classic buffalo wing flavors. Use Frank’s Red Hot for the best buffalo chicken dip recipe ever!
Buffalo Chicken Dip is a classic American favorite dip. It’s full of cheesy goodness. It’s always a party favorite that people chow down on. You can use crackers, a sliced baguette, or celery for dipping. Most things taste good when smothered with spicy cheese. I prefer using Frank’s Red Hot for the hot wing sauce. I find that it has the best flavor.
Don’t like bleu cheese? I get it. Bleu cheese is a flavor you either love or hate. You can substitute ranch dressing in place of the bleu cheese dressing in this recipe. Then use crumbled feta on top in place of the crumbled bleu cheese.
How do you cook chicken for buffalo chicken dip?
BOILING: One of the easiest ways to cook chicken for buffalo chicken dip is to boil the chicken in seasoned water or chicken broth. Bring a medium-sized saucepan of water to a boil and season with 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper OR use chicken broth. Place 2 to 3 chicken breasts into the boiling water. Bring the water back to a simmer, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until chicken is no longer pink inside and is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
PRE-COOKED: You can also use cooked rotisserie chicken from your grocery store. Many large chains also offer pre-cooked and chopped chicken.
BAKING: Another option is to bake your chicken. Place chicken breasts into a lightly greased 9×13 pan. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
