How to make the dip
When you need to bring a dish to a party or whip up a quick snack, you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
Thankfully, this recipe only takes about 5 minutes to prep.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken, softened cream cheese, sour cream, and Frank’s RedHot Sauce.
- Whisk the ingredients together until the dip reaches a smooth, creamy texture, then transfer to an oven-safe dish or skillet.
- Top the dip mixture with the shredded mozzarella and cheddar.
- Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes. You want the dip to be bubbling and slightly browned on top.
- Remove from the oven and allow the dip to cool slightly. Top with chopped green onions before serving.
Your delicious low carb buffalo chicken dip is now ready to serve!
This recipe is so easy to make for any occasion. I almost always have the ingredients on hand, so I can throw it together quickly if something comes up.
I like to use canned chicken because I usually have some in the pantry. However, if you have rotisserie chicken sitting in your fridge, you could easily use that instead.
You could also cook chicken and then shred with a fork.
The taste for this dip is pretty mild. Frank’s RedHot adds a lot of flavor without too much spice.
If you prefer your dip with more of a kick, try using buffalo sauce instead.
How to make it in the crock pot
I usually make this recipe in the oven if I’m planning to serve it immediately.
The other option is to make a crockpot buffalo chicken dip. This is convenient if you want to bring it to a party or if you just want to make sure it stays warm.
You can mix the chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, and Frank’s RedHot right in the crock pot. Cook the mixture on low for a few hours, making sure to stir occasionally.
30 minutes before you want to serve, add the shredded mozzarella and cheddar. Right before serving, add the green onions.
If the dip is going to be sitting out for a while, I recommend switching your crock pot to the warm setting so it doesn’t burn.
What to eat with buffalo chicken dip
Most buffalo chicken dips are pretty low carb. But what low carb items should you actually dip into it?
Celery is a classic pairing. The refreshing crunch balances out the creamy dip and the slight kick. Plus, 1 cup of celery only contains 1 net carb!
You could also make a batch of my low carb tortilla chips, which would be delicious with this dip.
Pork rinds are another option that have the same crunch as chips, although not everyone likes them.
