Buffalo Chicken Dip With Rotisserie Chicken

4:40 PM
How to make buffalo chicken dip with rotisserie chicken or shredded chicken.  This makes a great appetizer for a party.

I've heard that there's a big game coming up soon.  My family won't be watching the big football game, but we will be watching the Puppy Bowl before that.  We make all the snacky foods and watch the puppies.

When that's over, we will watch the commercials and the half time show.  We usually make pizza (I've learned never to order pizza on that day!) and live on snack foods like this buffalo chicken dip.



My kids are picky eaters, but surprisingly two of the three will eat this dip.  They both like buffalo hot sauce, which really shocks me since one is a really picky eater.


Buffalo Chicken Dip With Rotisserie Chicken


You can make this buffalo chicken dip recipe with rotisserie chicken or homemade shredded chicken.  For easier homemade shredded chicken, so how I make shredded chicken in my Instant Pot.

My Walmart sometimes has rotisserie chickens for $3!  I've been known to buy 4 of them and change dinner plans and freeze the rest for dinners like this one.

Of course, I always reserve the carcass for making bone broth in the Instant Pot.

What Goes Good With Buffalo Chicken Dip?


We usually use crackers or nacho chips, but try one of these creative foods to eat with your buffalo chicken dip.


  • Fries
  • Crescent rolls
  • Potato skins
  • Inside egg rolls
  • With pasta
  • On pizza
  • In a grilled cheese
  • Celery sticks
  • Carrot sticks
  • Toasted bagel slices
Or just eat it plain with a spoon!


What Kind of Crackers Go With Buffalo Chicken Dip?


You can try your favorite cracker.  I usually use the Club crackers or saltines.

How Long Can Buffalo Chicken Dip Sit Out? 


Buffalo chicken dip can sit at room temperature for about two hours.  We put half in the fridge and switch it out or put it away after two hours.

You can also use a slow cooker to keep it warm after you cook it in the oven.

How Long Does Buffalo Dip Stay Good For?


You can store it in the fridge for three to five days after you make it.  If you use precooked chicken, go by the date that it was cooked and not the date that you made the dip.

Can You Freeze Buffalo Chicken Dip?


Yes, you can freeze it up to three months for best results.  To thaw, let it sit in the fridge overnight and then reheat as in the directions.

I don't recommend heating it from frozen.  It may become watery.

What foods can be frozen? Some may surprise you!



What is Buffalo Flavor?


Buffalo is a great flavor for chicken.  It's traditionally made from a hot sauce made with cayenne pepper, vinegar, butter, garlic, and other seasonings.

Can I Make Buffalo Chicken Dip in a Slow Cooker?


Yes, you can.  I prefer it baked, but I will use the slow cooker if I have a lot of party prep to do.  Make it as directed but cook for three to four hours on low.  Stir every 30 minutes.

I've also baked it in the oven and transferred it to the slow cooker.  I get the baked taste with the cheese, but it still says warm.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients



  • 1 rotisserie chicken or 3 cups shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce (I like this one)
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounce whipped cream cheese
  • Tortilla chips or crackers


Buffalo Chicken Dip Directions


Step #1


Remove the skin from the rotisserie chicken.  Shred the chicken and place in large bowl.  If using preshredded chicken, measure out three cups and place in large bowl.



Step #2


Add cheddar cheese and cream cheese.  Reserve about 1/2 cup cheddar cheese to top the dip before you bake it if desired.



Step #3


Add the buffalo sauce and mix well.


Step #4


Spoon into a casserole dish.  Sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese on top if desired.



Step #5


Cook for 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Let cool slightly before serving.



Yum!  We love this for a quick and easy appetizer at a party.
