Dad Recipe: Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip

Frank's Red Hot makes for incredible buffalo dip! (See footnote for image credit)

Just in time for this weekend’s NCAA Final Four (which will feature my University of Kentucky Wildcats in a hopefully very prominent, dominating role!), I wanted to share what’s become a near-staple in the Kentucky Dad household – Buffalo chicken dip!

My first exposure to this awesome appetizer-turned-main-event came a few years ago at an office Christmas party (thanks, Ashley!!!).  There are about as many variations of it as there are people who make it, but the recipe below – which is loosely based on one over at the Frank’s Red Hot website – has proven to be the best we’ve tried at home.  Enjoy!


  • One 8-oz. block of cream cheese
  • One can cooked chicken breast meat (can double for more meat!)
  • 1/2 c. wing sauce
  • 1/2 c. Bleu cheese dressing
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Put all ingredients in your Crock pot/slow cooker and stir to combine (don’t worry about breaking up the cream cheese; just loosely bring the liquid ingredients and chicken together).  Cook for one hour on high, or two hours on low. Stir periodically while cooking to prevent it from sticking.

For Dipping

  • Tortilla chips (our standard)
  • Pita chips (if you’re bored of tortillas)
  • Celery sticks
  • Baby carrots

(We’ve actually had success getting Katie-Bug to eat veggies this way!)

That’s all there is to it.  It comes together very easily, can be scaled with no problem whatsoever (just double/triple/etc. the ingredients – the only limit is the size of your slow cooker!) and has great leftover potential.
