This Buffalo Chicken Dip starts with a beautifully creamy base of ranch dressing that the entire dip is based on. I don’t know about you but in my house growing up, there wasn’t any better flavor than buffalo chicken and ranch dressing. It reigned supreme fo' sho'!
The ingredient list for this recipe is just about as short as the time it takes to make it. Toss everything in a stand mixer, I do this to make it super quick and fast, but you could do it by hand, then pour it in a dish and bake.
Make this even easier for yourself and buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it the moment you bring it home from the store. I even find already pulled rotisserie at my store sometimes, grab that if you find it, it's totally worth using.

I love starting this dip with a base of homemade ranch dressing because it builds the flavor in just the right way. And what’s better than ranch dressing? Nothing if you ask me. Start by mixing together the mayonnaise and buttermilk with the ranch dressing mix.
Then I add in the meat of one shredded rotisserie chicken, buffalo sauce, and some cheddar and blue cheeses. Finish with a gentle fold of green onions and it is ready to go in the baking dish. I love to use individual 6-inch cast-iron skillets, but the recipe perfectly fills a deep pie dish as well, or an 8x8 baking dish.
Top the dip with a sprinkle of cheddar or Colby-Jack cheese to give it a nice crisp topping while it bakes.
My favorite way to eat this Buffalo Chicken Dip is with Fritos scoops, but it is equally good spread on French bread or with any type of corn chips.
Notes & Tips
This recipe fills a deep pie dish perfectly, you can also put it in individual cast iron skillets, it fills 4 - 6-inch skillets perfectly.
I like buying the big container of ranch seasoning at Costco because I season my veggies and many other things with it too.
