What Makes This Recipe Great

Summer is flying by, which means Fall is coming quickly and game day appetizers (Football season!)  are going to make their way to your recipe rotation sooner rather than later! Today, I’m sharing a Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe that has all the flavors of buffalo chicken wings in a creamy, cheesy, and addicting dip! 

Made with a few simple ingredients, this dip comes together with just 10 minutes of prep, and the slow cooker does the rest. After an hour you have the ultimate appetizer to serve alongside celery sticks, carrot sticks, tortilla chips, crackers, and more! 

You can cook and shred your own chicken with forks, use leftovers from another meal, or grab a Rotisserie chicken for even easier prep. This recipe is super easy to throw together last minute, travels well, and feeds a crowd– the BEST!

Ingredient Notes

recipe ingredients in small bowls and labeled
  • shredded chicken breasts: You can shred chicken yourself, use leftover chicken, or use Rotisserie chicken for an easy option. Canned chicken would also work in a pinch– just make sure to drain first. 
  • full fat cream cheese
  • buffalo sauce: I like Frank’s, but feel free to use your favorite type of hot sauce. 
  • Greek yogurt: You can substitute sour cream if desired. 
  • ranch seasoning: You can make my homemade ranch dressing mix or use a store-bought packet. 
  • Colby jack cheese: I used Colby jack, but feel free to use shredded cheese of choice– sharp cheddar, pepper jack, mozzarella cheese, or a Mexican blend will work well. 
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • tortilla chips, celery sticks, carrot sticks, or crackers for serving
  • chopped green onions for garnish

Recipe FAQs

How do you keep this slow cooker Buffalo chicken dip from getting greasy? 

I’ve made this recipe many times and never had an issue with this. I’ve tested the ratios to make sure that there’s just enough buffalo sauce, chicken, cream cheese, and yogurt to yield a result that is extra creamy and not greasy at all. When greasiness occurs, it’s often because the ratios are off. 

What goes best with Buffalo chicken dip? 

This dip can be served with a variety of accouterments, depending on your preference! Fresh veggies, tortilla chips or crackers, and even toasted baguette slices would work great.
