This is a fantastic recipe that never fails to impress! To address the layer of oil tat gathers on the top: Use a high quality block of cheese (cheddar honestly works best) and shred it yourself before mixing. The problem with using pre-packaged shredded cheeses is that they are coated in flour, so the pieces won't stick together. Flour in this recipe draws the oil to the top, coating the dip in a runny red film. Easily solved by shredding yourself! (I have tried off-brand block cheese, and they too have put flour in their cheese. Make sure that the one you buy has NO flour!) Read More

This recipe is great! Did you know buffalo chicken dip has its own site and facebook page? Anyway, I always recommend using canned chicken. I work for Swanson so I know their chicken is made with only white meat. When we made the recipe with rotisserie and regular chicken it was often clumpy, but the Swanson Chicken really improvest the consistency! It also makes this recipe really easy. Cooking and shredding your own chicken takes a while! Read More

I make this all of the time and it is great! Only thing I change is I use rotissary chicken from Sams or Superwalmart, shred it and dump all of the ingredients into a crock pot. I usually let it cook on low for about 30 minutes, then eat with Frito scoops. Husband loves it, so do I!!! Read More

Superb! Just perfect! Made it as described with blue cheese, for the shredded cheese option I used a cheddar blend and threw in some grated parmesan on top. I also used the 1/3rd less fat cream cheese to cut down on the fat. I also didn't like the idea of using canned chicken so I grilled some up fresh, then cut it into small pieces. My boyfriend and I were crazy about this after having a version at a local restaurant. We both agreed it was better then the restaurant version. We will make many more times! Read More

Always a classic for a party! I am not fond of blue cheese dressing so I sub with ranch. The Buffalo Wing sauce seems to be a little milder so I use that. Read More

I have made a variation of this for a few years. The differences are: I put celery in--about 3/4C chopped I use about 20oz frozen Tyson diced chicken--thawed Full bottle of Frank's Buffalo Full bottle of Marzetti's Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing. Read More

Delicious! I used half blue cheese, half mozzerella and used boiled shredded chicken instead of canned! Thanks for the recipe, will definitely make this for parties in the future. Read More

I didn't care for this. The only reason it resembled buffalo wings is because of the sauce. Read More

This is an awesome and easy appetizer recipe! A must for any party or SuperBowl gathering! I always save a little bit for the next day and use it as an omelette filling. Beat four eggs with salt and pepper. Pour into a pan over medium heat. Keep lifting edges to let liquid egg slide to the pan. Once the egg is just about solidified, put heated buffalo chicken dip on one half of omelette and fold over. It's my man's dream omelette! Read More
