  • Author: The Cooking Jar
  • Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8-10 1x


This 6-ingredient slow cooker buffalo chicken dip is a creamy and spicy mix of chicken, buffalo sauce, ranch, sour cream and cheddar cheese.


Units Scale
  • 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded (about 1.5 lbs.)
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 2 (8 oz.) blocks cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
  • 2 green onions, sliced (optional)
  • Blue cheese crumbles (optional)


  1. Add chicken, buffalo sauce, cream cheese, ranch, sour cream and 1 cup of cheddar cheese to a 3 qt. slow cooker.
  2. Cook on LOW for 2-3 hours until hot and bubbly. Give it a good stir every once in a while to help the cheeses melt.
  3. [Optional cheesy top] Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, cover and cook for another 15 minutes or until the cheese on top has melted.
  4. Dish and serve hot with tortilla chips, crackers, or veggies and top with optional sliced green onions or blue cheese crumbles.
  5. Enjoy!


  • Rotisserie chicken is great for this recipe. A normal-sized store-bought rotisserie chicken should give you a little over 4 cups of shredded chicken meat.
  • If you’re short on time, you can cook this on HIGH for 1-2 hours, but it will be a little oily from the cheese separation.
  • This is a thick and chunky dip. If you feel the dip is too thick for you, add a splash of milk to thin it out until it’s your desired consistency.
  • Add more heat – This dip is about as spicy as mild Buffalo wings. If you want to turn up the heat to hot, add a few shakes of cayenne powder.
