Best Buffalo Crack Chicken Dip

Buffalo Crack Chicken Dip is everything you could ever want in a party or game day dip. The dip is easy to make and can be made ahead of time. When the party starts, just heat it up and enjoy the moment!

We used shredded rotisserie chicken, but the chicken breast will work just as fine. Then, mix it up with buffalo sauce, cream cheese, ranch, mozzarella, and pepper jack cheese, and throw it in the oven. Cook it for 30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the dip is bubbly. It’s that simple.

To save on calories, you can use low-fat cheeses, low-fat mayo, and cream cheese. Serve with chips, crackers or crunchy veggies, this Dip will be gone before you know it.

Can I make Buffalo Crack Chicken Dip in advance?

Yes, it is very easy to prepare ahead, and then bake before your guests arrive. The dip takes about 15 minutes to assemble together, so it is very convenient. For best results, we recommend preparing the dip one day in advance and store in the refrigerator before baking. When ready to serve, put the prepared dip in the oven at 350 degrees F and cook for about 25-30 minutes.

  1. Stir together all ingredients until well-combined in the Crockpot.

  3. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  4. After, add in crumbled bacon and stir to incorporate.
  5. Serve warm, with your favorite chips, crackers, and veggies.

How to make Buffalo Sauce?

  • pinch granulated garlic (optional)

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients together, and whisk until well combined. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one month. Shake well before using.

To refrigerate the dip, first transfer it to an airtight container. Then, store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. When ready to serve, heat the dip in the oven or microwave until warm.

CAN YOU FREEZE BUFFALO CRACK CHICKEN DIP?

Freezing the Buffalo Crack Chicken Dip is not recommended. Since the dip contains mayonnaise and cream cheese, it will separate when frozen. Also, once frozen, the texture of the dip will not look as good as expected. Therefore, it is best not to freeze the dip.

Buffalo Crack Chicken Dip Recipe Tips

  • To save some calories, you could swap the cream cheese for lower fat Neufchatel cheese.
  • Similarly, you could use half the mayo, or light mayo, which worked out great as well.
  • If you don’t want the dip to be spicy, just reduce or omit the Buffalo sauce.
  • It is great served with chips, crunchy veggies, or a warm baguette.

When I put all the ingredients in MyFitnessPal to add as a recipe, i have to make it serve 14 people to have each get 1/2 cup serving with the nutritional values you have.(340 calories per 1/2 cup) Does this really make 7 cups? I want to make it for super bowl but seems like a lot! Can you verify the total amount  it makes to get the 1/2 cup serving? Thanks so much, can’t wait to make!

When I enter the recipe on my fitness pal I have to put 14 total servings to pair it down to the nutritional value you have for 340 calories per 1/2 cup. Does this really make 7 cups? I am hoping to make this for super bowl but that seems like a huge dish! Can you verify that for me? Thanks so much, can’t wait to make!

It definitely makes a lot, for sure about 7 cups. I hope this helps.

Love this recipe! The bacon was a bit too much so we omit the bacon.

Best stuff ever! I even forgot to put in the cream cheese (I guess I was too excited) and it was still like the best thing ever. This was the first time I’ve made a dip like this, and it was everything I was hoping it would be. Next time I’ll try to remember all of the ingredients. Thank you!

Just a comment about Buffalo Crack Chicken. I and my sister started with Crack Chicken cream cheese, pkg of hv ranch dip/dressing mix, after cooked add shredded cheddar cheese and bacon. I secret I learned about shredding the chicken if you have a hard mixer you can use it to shred the chicken right in your slow cooker. I hope you give it a try also the recipe if you haven't yet. otherwise just add your 1/2 cup hot sauce for buffalo crack chicken. My sister uses 1/4 cup and I use 1/8 cup hot sauce. Hope you like
