This one comes from Recipe Zaar. I also completed #87 from my bucket list – dip.

Buffalo Chicken Dip for quick and easy party food

Updated on 4/4/13: It’s been a few years since I first posted this recipe, and Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe is STILL the most popular dip at parties. I’ve actually been to parties where there would be 2 or 3 pie plates full, and by the end of the night, all of the dip is gone. All of it! Since this is such a great recipe, I updated the photos in hopes that you’ll make this dip too. Let me know if you try it!

Save Recipe


2 tablespoons butter (add pinch of salt if unsalted
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken* (see Note)
1/2 cup hot sauce
1/2 cup ranch dressing
8 ounces cream cheese, softened and cut into 16 pieces
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Nachos, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Have a 9-inch pie plate or similar casserole dish ready.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion, garlic, and green pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until the onion and green pepper start to soften. Add the chicken, hot sauce, and ranch and cook for another 5 minutes. Add in the cream cheese, a few pieces at a time, and stir until melted and smooth. Stir in 3/4 cup cheese and cook until melted and smooth.
  3. Transfer the dip into the pie plate and top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake for 30-35 or until bubbly and cheese has melted. Serve warm with nachos.


*Sometimes to save time and money, I'll use one (12.5 ounce) canned chicken breast, drained and broken into smaller pieces with a fork. Since you cook the chicken in the sauce mixture, you aren't left with that canned flavor.

  1. I have never heard of this. Wow, does it sound good. I'm gonna have a party just to serve this dish.

  2. I love this stuff! I have gotten numerous people hooked on it. The recipe I use has you to put it in a crockpot to bake afterwards, which makes it perfect for parties, since it stays warm.

    You have me craving this now. You managed to make yours look photogenic too, which is one thing I had yet to figure out how to do since it really isn't "pretty."

  3. I've seen this recipe before and never tried it. Every time I see the recipe everyone raves about how good it is. Congrats on marking another item off your list!
