Morgan’s Buffalo Chicken Dip

If you like buffalo wings in traditional buffalo wing style, here’s a recipe for you!

My friend, Morgan, had been talking about this dip for quite some time before I actually asked her for the recipe.  And when my sister’s family was here over Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to give it a shot.  After feeding the kids lunch, Blake and I sat down with Jessica and her husband, Scott, to a big bowl of this dip and a variety of dippers.  That’s all I made for our big kids lunch.  And we were happy as all get-out.  It was every bit as delicious as Morgan had described, and we devoured it in no time.

Do you know about Frank’s RedHot sauce?  It’s what gives this dip its buffalo wing sauce flavor.  And it is awesome!  I’ve always been accustomed to the Tabasco style hot sauce, and truthfully, I’m not the biggest of fans.  Then a friend turned me on to Frank’s, and our family has made this our condiment of choice.  We dash this bright and flavorful sauce on eggs, frozen pizza, and macaroni and cheese.  And it’s fantastic in this Zippy Chicken Mushroom Soup, featured by Kristen of Dine and Dish. (Thanks Kristen – this is now one of my family’s favorite soups!)

This dip could easily be enjoyed any time of year.  But what’s stopping you from trying it out this week?!  Impress your family and friends at your New Years celebration.  You’ll be crowned their 2011 hero.

Morgan’s Buffalo Chicken Dip

Yield: about 4 cups


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. chunky blue cheese salad dressing
  • 1/2 c. Frank’s RedHot sauce
  • 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 12.5-oz. can Premium Chicken Breast in Water, drained


Heat oven to 350°.

Place cream cheese into baking dish.  Stir until smooth.  Mix in salad dressing, hot sauce, and shredded cheese.  Stir in chicken.  Bake 20 minutes or until mixture is heated throughout.  Place under broiler for a bit if you want to brown it slightly.

Serve with your favorite crackers, chips, or vegetables.  We prefer Fritos Scoops, carrots, and celery.

    I LOVE this dip!!! I made it a week ago and fell in love, I swear I could eat a whole bowl and not feel bad. ;)

      Hi Angela – I could probably eat a whole bowl, too! I’ve made this several times for different groups of family & friends, and it’s always a hit.

    This is truly delish! I made a variation of it for Christmas Eve appetizers and served it with Chicken in a Biskit crackers and celery! I am anxious to try your version. Love it!

      Great idea with Chicken in a Biskit crackers – will have to give that a try! Hope you had a very merry Christmas, and here’s to a happy New Year!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you and your family a wonderful New Year!!!

    I make this without the mozzarella cheese and using ranch dressing and it’s outstanding that way too. I also got real lazy and didn’t want to wait for it to bake so I mixed all the ingrediants together and microwaved the dip. It actually turned out really nice and creamy and you don’t get that too much cream cheese and not enough of the hot sauce issue.

      I’ve heard of people using different dressings in this…I’m going to have to try it! Thanks, Carol!

    About what size is that baking dish? I am spatial challenged I like to say :) Is it about an 8 by 8 square or smaller?

    • Brenda replied on June 4th, 2014 at 2:05 pm

      Hi Betsy – the dish shown in my photo is about 8″ square and 1-1/2″ deep. Hope you like this!

    MMMM Yum! Took this to a gathering tonight and received lots of praise and requests for the recipe! I did double the recipe and swapped out the blue cheese dressing for ranch instead. My sweet hubby requested that I make this again and soon.

      We made this last weekend, too! So good!!

    I’ve made this dip before, and love it! I was wondering, can it be made in a slow cooker too?

    • Brenda replied on November 27th, 2015 at 10:04 am

      Hi Jay – I have never made it in a slow cooker, but think it’s a great idea!
