Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip Recipe
The "Big Game" is only a day away, and a solid Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip Recipe is a must for the occasion!
At-least it is at my house.
Which, by the way, is in Buffalo, New York. The home of the Buffalo Chicken Wing.
In fact, a lot of you probably don't know this....but my dad is the owner of the oldest family-owned/operated chicken wing restaurant in America, the world, and yes, the galaxy - Duff's Famous Wings.
We've actually been selling chicken wings there since 1969.
So, uhh, enough shameless plugging, and humble bragging about the restaurant. Let's get back to talking about this dip.
I really just told you all of that to let you know, that I know - lol - what I'm talking about when it comes to Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip.
Which, by the way, we just call it "wing dip" here in Buffalo. It's actually giving me pain writing "Buffalo" before it.
Also, if you ever come to Buffalo, we'll know you're from out of town when you order "Buffalo wings".
Again, it's just wings or chicken wings here...no need to say the Buffalo part.
How To Make Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
Ok, so to make things as easy as possible on yourself the best thing you can do is use a rotisserie chicken for this dip recipe.
That way, you don't have to worry about cooking anything besides this dip, and rotisserie chickens are super cheap too.
However, if you don't use a rotisserie chicken, you'll want to have some cooked chicken breasts or thighs available before you make the dip.
That said, let's talk about ALL the ingredients you'll need for this chicken wing dip...
- Shredded Chicken
- Cubed Cream Cheese
- Blue Cheese ... or Ranch Dressing
- Frank's Red Hot Sauce ... or Duff's Hot Sauce (wink wink)
- Cheddar Cheese
By the way, if you have the blue cheese and hot sauce ready to go for this dip you might as well make this air fryer chicken wing recipe next.
Now, you'll want to shred about 2 ½ cups (300 grams) of chicken, and set that bowl aside.
Then, in a separate bowl, you'll want to add 8 ounces (224g) of cream cheese and a heaping ⅓ cup (110 grams) hot sauce. Use a hand mixer to combine the two together.
Once combined, add the chicken and the blue cheese - or ranch dressing - (120 grams) to the bowl, and stir with a spatula.
When everything mixes into one another, transfer the dip to an 8x8 dish, and bake at 350 Degrees Fahrenheit for around 20 minutes.
Now, top the dip with ½ a cup (56 grams) of cheddar cheese, and broil until bubbly and melted.
Serve hot with celery!
Oh, and you can use a lot of these same ingredients to make this healthy Buffalo chicken dip for another terrific option.
How To Make Low Carb Keto Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
Yes, this Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip recipe is low carb and keto friendly.
In fact, every serving has just 1 Carb.
That said, I have some tips on keeping the carbs as low as possible when you make this dip.
So, here they are...
- Use the lowest carb cream cheese you can find - Philidelphia Cream Cheese has just 1g per ounce.
- Try to find/use Olive Garden's Ranch Dressing in place of the blue cheese - It's less than 1 carb per serving.
- Top the wing dip with fresh cheddar cheese instead of shredded - The fresh stuff has 0 carbs.
If you follow my advice here, the entire 8x8 dish of Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip will have just 8 Carbs.
And we're talking about a TON OF DIP for that amount of carbs.
What to Dip Into This Recipe
Ok, so, one of the most difficult things is finding acceptable low carb keto dipping vehicles.
What I mean by that is "normal" chips obviously don't work if you're trying to keep the carbs low.
However, there are plenty of alternatives you can use.
Here are a few of my favorites...
- Quest Protein Chips
- My 2 Ingredient Keto Crackers
- My 2 Minute Keto Bread
- Pork Rinds
- Parm Crisps
All of these are really great dipping options for folks following a low carb keto diet!
And they all pair perfectly with this Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip recipe.
