This recipe for Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip comes with some choices you will have to make. If you bake this Buffalo Chicken Dip uncovered the cheese on top looks beautiful and brown but is more difficult to dip in your crackers or whatever you are using. If you bake the dish covered with tinfoil the cheese is melted and it is a lot easier to eat! I always make it covered. The next choice you have is whether to use regular sour cream or a sour cream based onion dip. The choice is yours but I highly recommend using the onion sour cream dip at least once! Using it adds so much flavor! I have also used leftover chicken or just cooked three or four chicken breasts My friend Julie is addicted to this dip and throws some chicken breasts in her slow cooker to cook. Every time she makes it. I usually use a rotisserie chicken.

Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip
- 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
- 3 1/2 - 4 cups rotisserie chicken or chicken breast, cooked, shredded leftover chicken works great too
- 2/3 cup Buffalo wing sauce
- 2/3 cup ranch or blue cheese salad dressing
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded cheese
- 1 cup cheese, shredded to sprinkle on top before baking
- onion powder to taste
- garlic powder to taste
- salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- celery sticks, corn or tortilla chips, crackers or baguette slices for serving
- green onions, thinly sliced for serving, if desired
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream, buffalo wing sauce and dressing. Add chicken, 1 1/2 - 2 cups of cheese and stir until blended. Taste your dip and see if it needs salt, pepper, garlic powder or onion powder. I usually don't put any in Spread into your prepared pan. Sprinkle with mre cheese if desired.
Bake, covered in tinfoil, for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. If you prefer a brown top do not cover. Dip will look prettier but it will be more difficult to scoop if your cheese is darkened. Serve with baguette slices, celery sticks or corn or tortilla chips
Place all of your dip ingredients into your slow cooker. Cook on high for 1-1 1/2 hours. Serve in slow cooker on low or scoop into bowls for individual servings.
