Ingredients for Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip

Chicken – Use rotisserie chicken or cooked shredded chicken for this recipe. Canned chicken can be used but should be folded in very gently at the end of prep.

Hot Sauce – Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce is a favorite but feel free to use homemade buffalo sauce.

Flavor – Add garlic powder and green onion for a little boost of flavor.

Shredded Cheese: Shred your own cheese for better melting. Use sharp cheddar for the best flavor, or try Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese. Add some blue cheese crumbles for a twist.

Make it Mild!

You can buy mild buffalo wing sauce if you’d like to tame the heat.

  1. I’m unable to read reviews on this recipe and plan to make it for thanksgiving. How does this compare to the other recipe (besides not using canned chicken). I like to read what others thought. This sounds better but I want to make sure I’m doing it right. I love your recipes and gravitate toward them.

    1. Hi Jennifer, I am so glad you have been loving the recipes! This recipe is very similar to my Best Ever Buffalo Chicken Dip which always has rave reviews, but this recipe has the ease of the Crockpot! I can’t wait to hear what you think once you try it!
