  1. This looks so yummy I have been craving a great buffalo chicken dip all month. I was at a party on Saturday and was thoroughly disappointed by the one presented it was runny- I love the bake dip with the cheese.. I can wait to try it!!!

  2. Looks DELECTABLE! I have to say, I have an affinity for those foods that get turned into dips. Another good one to try I made once is Jalapeno Popper dip. I made it off the cuff and it turned out wonderfully. I just thought of what was in a Jalapeno Popper. (I did add Bacon, which I think made the dip). Thanks for the share, I will add this to my arsenal for my next party!

  3. I love buffalo chicken dip…I make one too, but I’m always game to try new recipes! This is perfect for tailgate season!

  5. Buffalo Chicken Dip is my sons favorite dip:) I love the addition of all the cheese that tops your. Will have to let him whip this recipe up for us! Thanks for sharing with us at the Merry Monday Link Party:)

  6. I have lived in Buffalo my entire life and chicken wings are always served with blue cheese, not ranch. I realize some people don’t like blue cheese, and I’m sure your recipe is delicious, we just make it a little different here. My recipe that everyone always asks for is as follows:
    1 brick of cream cheese
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked
    Anchor bar chicken wing sauce (not Frank’s hot sauce) different taste
    Bottle of blue cheese dressing
    2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

    Shred cooked chicken and cover with chicken wing sauce in a bowl. Spread cream cheese on bottom of 9×11 pan, spread chicken mixture on top, cover with blue cheese and then cover with mozzarella. Cook for 30 min at 350. Serve with tortilla chips.
