Buffalo Chicken Dip with Sour Cream

I was looking for a recipe for Buffalo dip that did not include cream cheese. I couldn't find one, so here's what I came up with using sour cream.

  • 2 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 ½ cups ranch dressing

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • ½ cup hot sauce

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add chicken, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove chicken and shred when cool enough to handle.

  2. Combine ranch dressing and sour cream in a saucepan over low heat. Stir and heat until warm, about 5 minutes. Stir in hot sauce and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, followed by shredded chicken.

  3. Transfer to an 8-inch round baking dish and top with remaining Cheddar cheese. Place in the refrigerator to cool for 1 to 2 hours.

  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Remove dip from the refrigerator and bake in the preheated oven until cheese is bubbly, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
