A classic game day appetizer, this Buffalo Chicken Dip is so popular for a reason! Filled with all of your favorite buffalo chicken flavors, this dip is super easy to make and always disappears.



  • 8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1/2 cup prepared ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Sliced green onions
  • Chips, carrot sticks, and celery sticks, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with a mixer, or mash up with a rubber spatula. (This just makes it easier to mix in.)
  3. Add the chicken, 1 cup of the cheese, the buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, and blue cheese. Stir to combine.
  4. Pour the mixture into an 8 to 9 inch baking dish and spread into an even layer. Top with the remaining cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until melted and bubbly, 25-30 minutes. Top with green onions before serving.
  6. Serve hot with chips, carrot sticks, or celery sticks.
