Frequently Asked Questions about THIS BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP RECIPE.

Can this dip be frozen?

NO.  This Dip can not be frozen.  The mayonnaise will break when you thaw it and it will be a gloopy disgusting mess.

TIPS and TRICKS for Buffalo Chicken Dip

Substitutions for Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients: 

  • Use Neufchatel or low fat cream cheese instead of the regular cream cheese.
  • OK to substitute the lower fat mayonnaise, vegan mayonnaise or olive oil mayonnaise.
  • You can substitute 4 cans of drained chicken for the rotisserie OR 2 small chicken breasts cooked through and shredded. 
  • If you prefer Blue Cheese instead of ranch, you can add in blue cheese crumbles, but KEEP the ranch dressing mix as well.
  • Other hot sauces work fine too, but we like Franks.

Possible additions for flavor:

Chopped tomato, bacon, chives, black olives, sun dried tomatoes. 

PRO TIP:  If you prefer a layered look to your dip, mix the chicken with the hot sauce and place that in the bottom of the baking dish. Soften the cream cheese on the stove top and mix in the ranch dressing. Smear this over the top of the chicken mix. Then top with the shredded cheese and bake. 

PRO TIP:  Prefer Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip? Simply toss it all in the crockpot and set on low for 4-6 hours.
