A few weeks ago, we hosted a game night for Joseph's board-game-geek-loving friends. I'm totally not crazy about them since I avoid complicated strategy games like the plague, but it does give me an excuse to try new recipes!
Normally, I stick to my tried-and-true snacks, but this time I had craving for something a little more spicy. Buffalo Chicken Dip was calling my name.
Believe it or not, I've never attempted any kind of Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe before, but I figured you can't really go wrong with chicken, buffalo sauce, and boatload of cheese on top.
In fact, this dip turned out to be SO good, I had the hardest time staying out of it!
Now I make this dip for just about every party: Super Bowl, New Years, Christmas Eve. If there's a gathering, you bet someone will request this dip!
Although Joseph and I have been known to substitute this as dinner every once in a while. 🙂
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Dip
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9″ pie dish. Then in a large bowl, add shredded chicken (cooked, of course), cream cheese, wing sauce and 1/2 cup of each of the cheeses. Combine.

Step 2: Turn mixture out into prepared pie dish, smoothing top lightly with a spatula. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Lots and lots of cheese.
Step 4: Bake 30-35 minutes, or until lightly browned and bubbly. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or crackers.
Now please excuse me while I go make another batch of this creamy deliciousness. The last recipe disappeared way too fast. 😉Print

- 8 ounces softened cream cheese

Stress-Free Tip: Make this dish ahead of time by mixing all ingredients and letting it sit for a few hours in the fridge before baking. Then just pop it in the oven when your guests arrive, and serve piping hot!
