The Absolute Best Buffalo Chicken Dip

This delicious, creamy and cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip is sure to be a fan favorite! It is jam-packed with tender shredded chicken coated in a fabulous buffalo sauce perfect for game day or your next party!

Hey, y'all! Happy Saturday. Saturday's around here mean one thing- it's time for another edition of Saturday's Snacks. Each Saturday I share a brand new appetizer recipe with you that is perfect for Game Day. This season I've shared great recipes like Million Dollar Dip, Fiesta Stuffed Peppers, Taco Meatballs and delicious Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers.

In our circle of friends, Buffalo Chicken Dip is pretty much a staple at parties. I think someone has brought this dip to pretty much every party I've ever been to. I have to admit, I have had some pretty tasty rendition of this modern day classic but I've also had some really crappy ones. This recipe, however, is hands-down the best version of Buffalo Chicken Dip I've ever had.

It begins with shredded chicken (and I'm not talking about the kind you buy in a can). Pile on some cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Add a bit of buffalo sauce and garlic powder and the secret ingredient and you've got yourself a winner!

Does the idea of shredding chicken sound daunting? I have a delightfully easy Instant Pot Shredded Chicken recipe that makes this task a breeze!

What's this secret ingredient, you may ask? Dry ranch dressing mix! So many people make their Buffalo Chicken Dip with bleu cheese (since that is what it is typically paired with) and as much as I love me some stinky cheese, the powdered ranch mix truly makes this dip taste better.

Whether you choose to use shredded chicken you prepare yourself or shredded rotisserie chicken, the final outcome will be fantastic! This dip is guaranteed to be a hit with your crew!
