I am back at again with another great dish for Super Bowl Sunday. This dip, like standard buffalo wings, is low in carbs and absolutely perfect for indulging. It’s super easy to make. I always use my slow cooker or Instant Pot for dishes with shredded chicken.

I simply add seasoned chicken breasts to my slow cooker with chicken broth and let the slow cooker do the work. The chicken is always very juicy and so easy to shred.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients

  • Cream Cheese
  • Plain Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
  • Buffalo Sauce
  • Shredded Cheese

What Type of Chicken to Use

I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. You can also use skinless chicken thighs with no change to the cooking time. Chicken thighs are a lot juicier than breasts and will work great in this recipe. You can also use a cooked rotisserie chicken. Chop your chicken into cubes and you won’t need to slow cook the dish at all.

What Type of Cheese to Use

I use sharp cheddar. Mild cheddar will work, too.

Detailed measurements and full instructions can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

  1. Add the chicken to the slow cooker with the chicken broth.

  7. Add the chicken mixture to the baking pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese throughout.
  8. Bake.

Do You Have to Bake it?

Baking is optional, but it will get the cheese bubbly and gooey.

Can the Dip Be Made Ahead of Time?

The dip will last covered in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days.

Can You Freeze the Dip?

Because this dip is made with dairy ingredients, if frozen it will have separation and become watery. A frozen cheese or cream dip would either be crumbly or watery when it is thawed. I would not freeze this dip. You can read more about How to Freeze Dips here.

Notes

Instead of baking the mixture, you can return it to the slow cooker with the cheese sprinkled throughout. Heat until the cheese is bubbly.
You can make your own chicken seasoning or rub using 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, and salt and pepper to taste.

So easy to make, and it tastes incredible! I used sour cream instead of Greek yogurt, but want to try with the yogurt next time. Can’t wait to make this again for our super bowl party!
