How Long Is This Buffalo Chicken Dip good for?
This chicken dip can be saved in the fridge for up to 5 days. Though, I doubt you’ll have any left after day 1!
Can You Freeze Buffalo Chicken Dip After Cooking?
Yup! After the dip has cooked and cooled down, scoop any leftover dip you may have in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag. Place it into the freezer and pull it out when you are ready to eat again at a later date.
Can I Make This Party Dip Dairy-Free?

To make this chicken dip dairy-free, swap out the cream cheese, ranch dressing, and shredded cheese for non-dairy alternatives. Make sure to check the buffalo sauce as some of them sometimes have hidden dairy in them!
Buffalo Chicken Dip In The Crockpot
Not only does this slow cooker dip taste amazing, but I really can’t rave any more about how simple and easy it is to make! All you need are a few simple ingredients to get started.

How To Make This Chicken Party Dip In The Slow Cooker
Before you start cooking, make sure to clean the chicken breast and skim off any extra fat.
In a large slow cooker, add the chicken breasts, cream cheese, buffalo sauce, and ranch dressing.
Cook on LOW for about 4 hours.
Once the chicken is cooked through, uncover the pot and sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top. Cover with the lid and cook for another 10 minutes. Then, remove the lid, and shred the chicken breast using two forks. Stir everything together to help mix the cheese around until it is well melted.
When you are ready to serve, top the dip with chopped chives and an extra drizzle of buffalo sauce if you want an added kick!
What To Serve With This Buffalo Chicken Dip
When it comes to eating party dips, I am always the first to reach for a chip to dunk into the warm cheesy dip. I mean, can you blame me? That ratio to chicken dip to tortilla tip is the perfect combination!
If you are looking for a side that is a little more hearty, try making some of this homemade bread in the crockpot. You can easily whip up a loaf using just two ingredients! After it is done baking, slice the bread into bite-size pieces and toast them in the oven for a few minutes to serve alongside the buffalo chicken dip.
Trying to stick to your low carb diet? No problem! You can silly make your own tortilla chips using low carb tortillas or try cutting up some veggies to serve on a platter with this chicken party dip.
Some of my favorite vegetables to serve are celery, carrots, broccoli, and radishes!
