The Best Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip
Have you ever made a buffalo chicken dip in the slow cooker? 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 cook 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 cook 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 dip. Why? Because it is so addictive. In our home buffalo chicken is always an option. We love the heat it packs and the ranch 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 work week.
How long does buffalo chicken dip last in the refrigerator?
If you are lucky enough to even have leftovers, the chicken 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 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 breads. If it will dip, we will try it, is our motto.
