Ever since I discovered crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip it’s been my go-to appetizer for parties, potlucks, and pretty much anytime I can find an excuse to make it. The creamy, cheesy, dip has just the right amount of spice from the buffalo sauce and it’s perfect for scooping up on a crisp tortilla chip, or a crunchy piece of celery.
I love to make a big batch of Buffalo Chip Dip in the Crock Pot and then combine it with other ingredients to make awesome appetizers like my Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Poppers or Buffalo Chicken Cups.
Making slow cooker buffalo chicken dip is all about convenience. When you’re feeding a bunch of people it’s great to include some easy recipes that don’t require a lot of ingredients and don’t take a lot of time to make. My recipe for Franks Buffalo Chicken Dip (crock pot) couldn’t be any easier!
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Dip in a Crock Pot
- It starts with cooked, shredded chicken. You can make the chicken yourself by boiling it in a pot of water until it is cooked. then you shredded the chicken using two forks. Another alternative is using canned chicken. My favorite way to save some time and get lots of flavor is to buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it.
- The shredded chicken goes into the Crock Pot with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, ranch dressing, and buffalo sauce. Place the lid on and let it cook for 3-4 hours on low heat or 1-2 hours on high heat, stirring every 30 minutes or so, until the whole mixture is heated through.
- You’ll know it’s ready when the cream cheese is completely melted and as you stir it everything combines into a super cheesy, creamy, spicy, dip. I like to sprinkle a little extra cheddar on top at the end, place the lid back on, and let it melt over the top before serving.
You’ve got lots of choices when it comes to serving your Buffalo Chicken Dip. I set my Crock-Pot on the table and make a big platter of veggies, like bell peppers, celery, and carrots, crackers, and tortilla chips. Then I open the lid and let everyone dig in. I don’t think I’ve ever had leftovers at the end of the night.

These meatballs are delicious! I just made them for the second time. I bought a 4pack of ground turkey at Costco and adjusted the recipe to use it all. I used a cookie dough scoop to make the balls and they were done in no time. They are a nice change and super handy to pull out of the freezer.
I added 13g Sodium Citrate and it kept the cheese from separating
Can I make this in the instant pot
I have used frozen chicken breasts several times and cooked them and shredded them and this recipe turns out beautifully every time.

Do you think I could double this recipe in the crockpot? How full is your 5qt usually?
Made this tonight and it’s fabulous! Boyfriend loves it as well. Just curious about what the serving size is; maybe I’m just oblivious but I can’t find it anywhere.
this serves 16, so I am not sure the oz of one serving is but 1/16 of the full recipe world be one serving
I made it using this recipe multiple times and turned out awesome each time! Question now is I have a bag of frozen chicken breasts. If I cook them before I throw it in the crockpot, would it still turn out the same?
