Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip

I was first introduced to this buffalo chicken dip recipe at a baby shower for my friend several years ago. I remember literally thinking about it for weeks after the shower and my mouth would just water! (It’s actually watering as I type this!) My taste buds fell in love, and there was no going back!

I finally asked my friend for the recipe and all was right in the world again… especially since I saw how easy it was to throw together. (For reals – you toss everything in your crock pot and call it good!)

We’ve made this dip several times since then, and we’ve even tried a few variations of it because the flavors pair so well together.  This dip is dang delicious, but it is also severely addicting – don’t say I didn’t warn you.

How To Make Buffalo Chicken Dip In A Crock Pot

  1. Place the chicken in the crock pot along with the Frank’s buffalo sauce and ranch dressing
  2. Cook the chicken and sauces using the low setting for 6-8 hours.  If you need it sooner, use the high setting for 2-4 hours.
  3. About 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve this, remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred it
  4. Put the chicken back in the crock pot and then add in the cream cheese and shredded cheese
  5. Stir everything together so that it mixes really well
  6. Let the dip cook for about another 30 minutes and then serve

Can You Freeze Buffalo Chicken Dip

Yes, you can freeze the left over buffalo dip if you store it in an airtight container.  However, I don’t like the texture of the dip after it has been frozen and then reheated.  I typically just refrigerate any leftover dip and then try to use it in the next three to four days.  When I’m ready to use it, I just scoop out what I need into a microwave safe bowl and warm that up to use.
