This is literally the perfect party dip!  Creamy, cheesy & spicy; this Buffalo wing flavored dip is loaded with shredded chicken and tons of yummy cheese!

As much as I love a classic Buffalo Chicken Dip, this ranch inspired twist is a game day favorite too! We love the zesty addition of Buttermilk Ranch Dressing loaded with fresh herbs, onions and garlic.

How To Make Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip

  • Chicken:
    • I most often use rotisserie chicken for this recipe because it’s fast.
    • If you need a quick option, Poached Chicken takes just about 15 minutes and is so incredibly tender and delicious.
    • Leftover Oven Baked Chicken Breasts works well in this recipe.
  • Cheesy Base:
    • Use a hand mixer for a light fluffy dip that won’t break your chips.
    • Fold in the chicken and green onions.
    • Swap out the ranch for your favorite blue cheese dressing if you’d like
    • Chopped celery adds a great crunch
  • Dippers:
    • Fresh veggies such as celery, carrots and cucumbers
    • Tortilla Chips
    • Crackers or baguette

We most often serve this Buffalo Chicken Ranch Dip with veggies, they pair perfectly with the heat and keep it low carb!!  You can also serve this with crackers or even sliced baguette (bonus points if you brush them with Homemade Garlic Butter and toast them in the oven)!

  1. I made this for my friend’s Facebook recipe party she’s hosted last year and this year.  I chose this recipe over several other buffalo chicken dip recipes because it looked yummy and it was very simple and didn’t require a long bake time. It went over really well. Of course there are always gonna be people who can’t handle spicy food so you can’t please everyone. I guess you can always use less wing sauce for those people. Lol But I loved it! I’ll definitely will be making it again!! 5 stars

    1. I’m so glad to hear that it was such a hit at your parties Lisa! Thank you for sharing, and thank you for enjoying Spend With Pennies recipes!

    1. I haven’t tried it but I think it’d be delicious with shrimp! Let us know how it is if you make it!

    1. Buffalo sauce is the hot sauce often found on Hot Chicken Wings and is sold in the hot sauce aisle. Frank’s Red Hot makes a great one. You can combine 1/2 cup melted butter with ⅔ cup hot sauce and a dash of garlic powder to make your own.

  2. Yeah…layered is the only way to make Buffalo Chicken Dip. The ones where everything is all mixed together aren’t nearly as good. I top half with cheddar and half with blue.

  3. “Combine cream cheese, sour cream & ranch. Spread into the bottom of a pie plate or small casserole dish. Toss chicken with ½ cup buffalo sauce.

    Top with chicken and drizzle with remaining buffalo sauce.”

    For step 2, do I mix the chicken and buffalo sauce with the cream cheese, sour cream and ranch? Or just put it on top?
