Why You’ll Love Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip

Crock pot buffalo chicken dip was such a hit when I made it last week that we ended up keeping the whole bowl instead of sharing it with our neighbors as we originally planned. We just kept snacking on it throughout the day and before we knew it we were too in love to let it go.

In this low maintenance recipe you just dump in your ingredients (including raw chicken), heat over low for 6 hours, then shred the chicken, toppings and it’s ready to enjoy. There is not much prep work involved which makes this so easy when you have a bunch of other food to make and things to do.

There is hardly any prep aside from shredding cheese! Serve it with celery sticks and tortilla chips for the perfect snack (or girl dinner, in my case!).

Key Ingredients

  • Buffalo Sauce – the base for this dip, it adds lots of good vinegary tang with a kick of heat
  • Ranch Dressing – add to the cream cheese base for a  smooth texture.
  • Chicken – 2-3 raw chicken breasts or a whole rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • Cream Cheese – two softened blocks of cream cheese for the creamy base.
  • Shredded Cheese – use whichever melty cheeses you prefer here; colby jack, cheddar, mozzarella, pepper jack, all work. I usually opt for colby jack.
  • Toppings – blue cheese crumbles and sliced green onions for topping
  • Tortilla chips and Celery Sticks – for serving

How to Make Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip

Step 1: Add raw chicken to the slow cooker, add in two blocks of cream cheese (cut into chunks). Pour in the ranch dressing and hot sauce, cover and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours. 

Step 2: Once the buffalo chicken dip has cooked through, remove the whole chicken breasts and set aside for shredding. Shred chicken with two forks or a shredding tool, then add it back into the crock pot.

Stir all the ingredients to combine and smother the chicken. Add in most of the shredded cheese, mixing to incorporate it. Top with remaining cheese, cover with a lid and continue to cook 30-45 minutes or until cheese has melted through.

Step 3: Top the slow cooker buffalo chicken dip with sliced green onions and blue cheese crumbles. Serve alongside celery sticks and tortilla chips. I like to leave my crock pot on the “Keep Warm” setting throughout serving.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 chicken breasts (raw) rotisserie chicken can be used instead - see notes for adjust cook times**
  • 2 blocks cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce Moore's, Frank's, etc.
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheese, divided cheddar, colby, pepperjack, etc.
  • Toppings: 2 green onions, blue cheese crumbles
  • Serving: tortilla chips and celery sticks

Instructions

  • Into the slow cooker add: raw chicken, two blocks of cream cheese (cut into chunks). Pour in the ranch dressing and hot sauce, cover and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours**.
  • Once the chicken has cooked through, remove the chicken breasts and set aside for shredding. Shred chicken with two forks or a shredding tool, then add it back into the crock pot.
  • Stir all the ingredients to combine and smother the chicken in the sauce. Add in most of the shredded cheese, mixing to incorporate it. Top with remaining cheese, cover with a lid and continue to cook 30-45 minutes or until cheese has melted through.
  • Top the dip with sliced green onions and blue cheese crumbles. Serve alongside celery sticks and tortilla chips. I like to leave my crock pot on the "Keep Warm" setting throughout serving.

Notes

**If substituting with cooked rotisserie chicken, adjust cook time to 2-3 hours on low or until the cream cheese is fully soft.
**Avoid the HIGH setting if your crock pot gets very hot as it can break the sauce creating tons of small lumps/curds. It'll still be delicious but not as visually appealing.
