How to Make Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip
Step 1: Mix the chicken and hot sauce together.
Step 2: Place the buffalo sauced chicken in a baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 – 12 minutes. This helps marinate the chicken with the hot sauce.
Step 3: While the chicken is baking, mix together the softened cream cheese and and blue cheese.
If you like a little bit more of a bite to your dip, you can add more blue cheese. I personally, think the 1/2 cup is perfect. Spoon the mixture onto the baked chicken. Bake for another 10 – 12 minute or until the edges are bubbling.
Step 4: Top with cheddar cheese!

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe Oven Tips:
Can you freeze the buffalo chicken dip? I wouldn’t recommend it. The cheese will change consistency.
What size baking pan do I need to make the dip? I used a 9×11 baking pan for this recipe.
Can you substitute a different sauce for the blue cheese? Yes. BBQ sauce is delicious if you prefer something more sweet. You can also use ranch dressing which also offers a different flavor. My favorite is blue cheese because of the bite it has in contrast to the cream cheese.
What kind of blue cheese should I use in this recipe? Does it matter? Yes. It matters. The best blue cheese is found in your produce section with other salad dressings. A real chunky blue cheese like Marzetti Blue Cheese dressing is going to give you the best result.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time? This recipe is best served hot from the oven. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated to enjoy.
