Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip with Leftover Chicken
I made this dip just this past weekend. Hubby, my brother, and sister-in-law went out for dinner and drinks at a local place (a little tradition we do this time of year). Later when we returned home, I broke out the dip and it was a hit! We had a little game of Catch Phrase and munched on this and had a little laugh. Don’t you just love getting together with friends and family over good food? Oh the memories!
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Dip? It’s easy!

- Serve with your fave chips. Enjoy!
Tips for Making this Buffalo Chicken Dip
- Light cream cheese was used, but you can totally use the regular variety.
- Though this is a buffalo ‘chicken’ dip, if you want to omit the chicken and have straight up vegetarian, that’s a-ok too!
- Not a fan of blue cheese? You can omit.
- The variety of hot sauce you use will determine the spice level of this dip. My favourite is Frank’s (not sponsored or anything, I just enjoy that hot sauce).
- I warmed this buffalo chicken dip through, but you can enjoy as is if you prefer.
- Leftover cooked turkey from the holidays or special occasion? Use that instead of chicken.
