While this recipe isn’t as healthy as the others I’ve shared, it is still the perfect dish to bring to a potluck with your friends or neighbors. Buffalo chicken dip is easy to make, transport and serve. It is one of my favorite things to bring when my friends and I have group dinners because everyone loves it! The recipe is ideal for busy college kids who don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.
There are a few different ways to make this, but I’ve opted for a slow-cooker recipe. If you choose to make the dip in an oven, don’t leave it unattended for long periods of time. To save even more time, use a rotisserie chicken instead of cooking the chicken yourself. They’re about the same price you would pay for a package of chicken breast at the grocery store. Also, if you’d prefer it spicier, you can always add more hot sauce. For the best results, add another layer of the shredded cheddar on top about 15 minutes before it’s served.
-4 cups of shredded chicken breast, cooked
-1 8oz package of cream cheese
-1 cup ranch
-3/4 cup buffalo sauce
-1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1.) Combine all the ingredients into the slow cooker and cook it on low for about four hours.
2.) Serve hot with tortilla chips or veggies, and enjoy! It’s handy to transport this dish in the slow cooker as well, and leave it on the “warming” setting to keep it heated throughout an event.
