Buffalo Chicken Dip, Day 2

I made the buffalo chicken dip for Superbowl Sunday and had leftovers. We reheated it and wrapped it in tortillas with lettuce. Was good.

This is the way I made the dip (there are a few versions):

Combine 3 chicken breasts poached and shredded with
12 oz bottle of Franks Hot sauce

Place in the bottom of a casserole.

Combine 8 oz package of cream cheese with
8 oz of Ranch Dressing

Pour over chicken, top with shredded mozarella

Bake at 350 for 30 mins. Top with chopped celery.

  1. I made that same dip for superbowl. That's a good idea about the wraps. I think next time though, I'll mix the cheese in. Once it cooled...there was a solid layer of cheese on top and it was hard to dip anything into it.

      I found the same thing with the cheese. I think next time I'll either spread it out more when I bake it or add the cheese after baking the first 2 layers though mixing the cheese in sounds good too.

        The original recipe says to bake with no cheese for 20 minutes and then top with cheese and bake again for another 20 minutes.


    2. We do a quick version of that too.. I used canned chicken breast (3) that has been drained, rinsed, drained again, and I go through it and shred it a little more with my fingers. I add a brick of cream cheese, a cup of red hot, a cup of Jalapeno ranch and then the chicken. I also add in a brick of jack that I have shredded or pepper jack if I want serious heat. I always try and make it the night before because it just tastes better the next day. We microwave it if we are in a huge hurry, otherwise in a pyrex in the oven.

      If and when there is any left over, I smear it in a flour tortilla and made quesidillas.

      1. I had it lunch the next day too... Our variation is that we use a LOT of chicken Breast, 4 split ones. Then, after shredding, I just add enough Franks to flavor the chicken, For me, that was a little over 1/4 the bottle. Then, add 1 thing of cream cheese and then poor in a CREAMY dressing (I like Maries although this years I used TJs) to the point you want it to flavor (SO though it was TOO blue cheesy and I only used 1/2 the bottle!)

        It turns out more like a casserole this way than a dip, but people still LOVE it...


        1. I made it for superbowl Sunday but it was DEVOURED before Prince sang in the rain. I wish I had some leftovers, because I could really get down with a buffalo chicken wrap for lunch :0)

          1. Great idea, but I'll try it with bleu cheese instead of ranch.

              I do it with bleu cheese - it seems to make more sense to me. I do add a Ranch dressing mix packet, though:
