The Best buffalo chicken dip recipe

Have you ever made buffalo chicken dip crockpot? You know how creamy and delightful that is, but you have to wait all day for the dip to be ready to serve.

The Instant Pot cuts down the cooking time, so you have a faster dip that can be served up, without losing any quality in flavor. To be honest, the Instant Pot locks in so much flavor, it tastes better than a slow cooker version.

This buffalo ranch chicken dip is one easy appetizer that is a breeze to make. Best of all if you forgot to sit out chicken, that is okay!

You can make this dip with frozen or thawed chicken. If you use frozen, just increase the cooking time. I did use thawed chicken this go-around, I actually remembered to set some out! Go me. 

Instant Pot Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip Is My Go-To Warm Dip 

I am pretty well known with my family if there is a potluck I will bring my chicken wing dip. Why? Because it is so addictive. In our franks buffalo chicken dip is always an option.

We love the wing sauce it packs and the ranch dressing tames the spice, you can’t help but reach for another dip. I also, make a killer Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Pasta dish. This is one delightful treat to break up the workweek. 

How long does buffalo chicken dip last in the refrigerator?

If you are lucky enough to even have leftovers, the chicken wing dip can last up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator. If you wait too long to eat the dip, you put yourself at risk for food poisoning. Day three is when I personally toss all leftovers.

What crackers go best with Buffalo Chicken Dip?

There is no wrong cracker to pair next to your buffalo ranch chicken dip! It is all about flavor and texture preference. Clubs, Ritz, Wheat Thins, are all valid options in our home. Then we add in chips like Fritos or tortilla chips, and even veggies and hearty bread. Top with blue cheese. If it will dip, we will try it, is our motto.

I put in both the cheeses after I cooked in chicken with the ranch packet and Buffalo sauce. Used hand hand mixer to shred it all together and it was creamy and delicious with no burning.

Hi there!

Last minute my daughter asked for this but I can’t find Frank’s original hot sauce anywhere. Any substitute?

Thank you so much!

This method didn’t work at all. I have an instant pot duo and ended up with a burn message. I went to release the pressure and got 2 more. The cream cheese seems to have been the cause. There was charred cream cheese on the liner. I may try again, but adding the cream cheese at the end and adding some water. I ended up scraping everything out, shredding the half cooked chicken with my mixer, and finishing it in the oven.
