Buffalo Chicken Dip

I've made this dip a couple of times since December & thought it would be a perfect time to post for the big football weekend coming up. I have tried other versions that are baked & found them to be on the dry side. I love that this one gets all saucy & cooks in a crockpot while I get to do other things!

The pictures don't do it justice but it smells & tastes delicious!!! This dip is a must have at any party or gathering where no one's counting calories!!!!



BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP

{ Click Here to Print Recipe }

3 large or 5 small chicken breasts
1 8oz package of room temp. cream cheese
24 oz ranch dressing
8 oz hot sauce (Texas Pete)

Boil the chicken until cooked. In a crackpot melt cream cheese with ranch dressing & hot sauce. When chicken is done, shred & put into the crockpot with the melted cheese mixture. Cook on low & stir occasionally for about an hour. Serve with Fritos, Scoops or fresh bread.



{ Food for Thought }

I recommend starting with 18oz ranch & then tasting to see if you'd like more. And just a reminder because I had to learn the hard way - try to get a bottle of hot sauce that has an opening which allows you to pour rather than just dash the sauce out. Otherwise, you'll be there forever.


If you like this then you may just like one of my favorite dips of all time & the reason I will never buy store bought onion dip again:

I love the buffalo chicken dip. I don't use the ranch, must try it. I also top the dip with monterrey jack and pop it in the oven to melt.
