My husband loves buffalo chicken wings like you wouldn’t believe. However, I have to admit that they are not my favorite thing in the world. I just can’t enjoy myself and eat them. Even though the flavors are out of this world delicious!

I just don’t like getting all of the stickiness on my fingers as I’m eating them. I constantly feel like I need to get up and wash my hands and then wonder how much of that stuff is all over my face or stuck in my teeth. I get paranoid about messy foods, I guess. One thing that I do make for him that we both can enjoy is this Buffalo Chicken Dip!

Sakes alive is it good!!!

All the flavor and deliciousness of buffalo chicken wings, but without all the mess.

Everything guys love to taste, but perfect for girls who detest having sauce all over their fingers.

It really is the best of both worlds!

You really should make it soon.

It will be the hit of your party, get-together, or snack-fest, I promise!

Even Easier!

Prepare your buffalo chicken dip in the slow cooker for super simple entertaining.

  • Lightly spray the insert to the slow cooker with cooking spray or olive oil.
  • Mix together all ingredients except last 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and blue cheese crumbles and pour into the insert of the slow cooker. Top with remaining cheddar cheese and bleu cheese crumbles. Place lid on the slow cooker and turn on to the low or warm setting for up to 4 hours.
  • Transfer to a serving dish or serve straight from the slow cooker!

If you are serving a large group, you may want to have enough ingredients on hand to make two of these.

It goes fast!

It’s delicious served with celery sticks, fritos, pita chips, or even tortilla chips!

And when you eat it with celery sticks, you don’t feel nearly as guilty!

I’ve included instructions on how I make it in the oven as well as have updated the post to include how I make it in my slow cooker! Talk about a revelation! This Buffalo Chicken Dip is a go-to recipe all year long!

Here’s how I make my Buffalo Chicken Dip. I hope you love it as much as we all do!

  1. Boy that looks good and made my mouth water till I got to the recipe… I don’t like spicy things. Do you think I could replace the hot sauce with BBQ sauce? I do love wings.

    • I’ve not tried it with BBQ sauce and not sure how all of these measurements would taste. If you try it, do let me know how it tastes with the BBQ replacement. I’ll work on developing a BBQ Chicken Dip for ya for 2012!

  2. Thanks! I’ve printed the recipe and plan on making it for New Years Eve!

  3. I love hot wings and this sounds WAAAY less messy!! Can’t wait to try it!!

  4. Because I haven’t exhausted myself or my shrinking jeans on hot artichoke dip yet – I think I’ll be adding this beauty to the lineup for NYE!! Any dipped paired with sourdough has my vote!! YUM!! ~Megan

  5. I love buffalo chicken dip! I usually use ranch dressing instead though.

    • My uncle made the Buffalo Chicken dip on Christmas eve. Needless to say, it didn’t last long. He also used ranch instead of bleu cheese. I’m trying it for NYE and using white cheddar topping instead. Yum yum…Marcia in NC

  6. Love this dip! One of my all time favorites 🙂

  7. I bet this does disappear fast! I’m kind with you on the sticky fingers deal, but they are soooo good.

  8. I love the wings at our local joint, but this dip would be so great for parties. Adding to my To Make list.

  9. Mmmmmmmmm, how I love this dip. We make a similar one, can’t wait to try yours!

  10. no doubt this goes fast! yummmmy!

  11. Oh, wow! Another one to add to my appetizer list. This sounds simply amazing. And, I think that two of my three littles will like it, too. 🙂

  12. I LOVE THIS! I make a simpler version of it (and use ranch instead of blue cheese). Its ALWAYS a fave at parties. and now several of my friends are sharing it with their friends at parties. I love it! My fave is to make some- then eat it for lunch with chips. IT has chicken in it- its good for me, right?

  13. mmm…looks so yummy!!! Wishing I had my own bowl of some right now, you know just to try. Not much 8 cups would do 🙂

  14. I love all of your dip recipes! 🙂

    Happy New Year!

  15. Have you tried making it wit ranch dressing instead of bleu cheese? While the hubby loves it no one else is really fond of it but love ranch with their wings. Thanks!

    • Hi Maggie,
      You can easily switch out the bleu cheese with ranch in equal quantities. It tastes delicious with the ranch, too. My husband just prefers the bleu cheese.

  16. Oh man, this looks delicious!!

    I’m the same way about mess – it’s to the point where I don’t even like ribs, no matter how succulent they are. Getting sauce all over my face and hands drives me absolutely batty.

    You know, another way I avoid the wing sauce fiasco is making buffalo chicken calzones. Give it a try sometime, it’s nom!

  33. Great recipe, I definitely like this one more than the others I’ve seen online. Would be great to see an estimated calorie count though because I can’t stop eating it!

  34. This is just the recipe I wanted to find now.that football season is here. I’m with you, I have a hard time enjiying chicken wings – chicken skin is gross! But I love the flavors. This recipe will definitely be in my menu soon.

  35. for the buffalo chicken dip, can it be served at room temp once it’s been cooked. thinking of taking to a party, but won’t have a way to keep it oven hot

    • Hi Lori,
      If at all possible, I would recommend keeping the dip warm at least until just before you serve it since it has dairy products and poultry in the dip. Could you make the slow cooker version and then just keep it warm that way until right before serving?

  36. Great recipe and I love it,my family loves too! Thanks Robin

  37. Looks so yummy, Robyn! And perfect timing for late season baseball games, and pre-season football getting started! 🙂

    Thank you!

  38. Great recipe for my weekend party happening on this weekend. Hope I will not make a mess ‘cos the kids are waiting for full of surprises. Thanks for shearing this one

  39. What do you think about using this as a pizza topping? Buffalo Chicken Pizza????

  40. Mmm…This dip sounds delicious!

  41. Yum yum yummy in my tummy thanks for sharing this great recipe.
