It is officially dip season! My slow cooker is working over-time, but we can’t get enough of this Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip! It is super simple to make, and turns out perfectly every time. The creamy, spicy combination will satisfy your hankering for buffalo wings with less mess and more than enough for a crowd!

The great thing about this recipe is how versatile it can be in regards to cooking method. You can use your oven and a casserole dish, a slow cooker, or an instant pot. I chose to use my Instant Pot this time, since I was able to cook the chicken and the dip all in one pot rather quickly and with minimal dishes. Win win!

The Chicken

You need 2 cups of shredded chicken for this Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe. This can be pre-shredded from the grocery store, leftover rotisserie chicken, or you can cook the chicken breasts in the instant pot or slow cooker depending on your preference and time frame.

  • For slow cooker, cook chicken breasts on low heat for 6 hours, or high heat for 2-3 hours. Shred chicken with 2 forks or an electric mixer, and add back to the slow cooker.
