Tips For The Perfect Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip

  • I think the chicken breast meat works best for this dip because it is easier to shred; however, you can other chicken meat.
  • In a pinch, if you don’t have any other chicken you can use canned chicken meat.
  • It’s important that your cream cheese is softened so that all the ingredients blend together nicely.
  • You can use a skillet, pie plate or similar oven safe baking dish to bake your dip.
  • Serve with baguette slices, chips, crackers, pretzel chips, celery sticks, breadsticks and veggies.
  • You can buy pre-made toasted baguette slices, also known as crostini, in your grocery store’s bakery or deli departments.

This buffalo ranch chicken dip is savory and delicious as-is; however, you can adjust the flavors to your taste.

  • Cheese: I like to use cheddar cheese, but Monterey Jack cheese, Colby Jack cheese or mozzarella cheese would also work nicely.
  • Spicier: For a spicier version of this dip, use some hot buffalo wing sauce or add a little hot sauce.
  • Blue Cheese Sauce: Buffalo sauce goes great with blue cheese dressing. Make a little blue cheese dressing to serve on the side and cool your mouth.
