This is one of those dips that will never go out of style. Why would it? It’s delicious. According to Google Analytics, it’s also, by far, the most searched Super Bowl snack. And it’s super easy to make. Some recipes call for canned chicken. Really? That’s just wrong. But if you think it’s right for you, go ahead and buy some canned chicken. Just don’t pull a Jessica Simpson and buy a can of Chicken-of-the-Sea….

 

Ingredients

  • 10 oz boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in small cubes
  • 1 (8-oz) package of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ c ranch dressing
  • ½ c of your favorite hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp butter

I use the most flavorful part of the chicken: Boneless/skinless chicken thighs. Trim the fat off the thighs and cut them into small pieces…no need to shred. Season with salt and pepper. In a pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the chicken when the butter starts to sizzle but doesn’t turn brown yet. Add your favorite hot sauce and cook until the chicken is cooked through.

Reduce heat and add cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing. Let the low heat work its magic until everything is melted into the perfect, spicy, tangy deliciousness. Serve with chips, celery, bread, or crackers.

I like to make and serve mine in a cast iron pan, which gives the chicken the perfect sear, and for serving, it stays nicely warm and looks awesome. What’s your favorite Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe?
