Buffalo chicken wings are a game day favorite and with good reason. Get all the great flavor without the mess with this loaded buffalo chicken dip recipe, perfect for your Super Bowl party.
This delicious dip recipe comes together in no time and is a great use for leftover chicken breast. Store-bought rotisserie chicken can be shredded and used as well so you can spend less time in your kitchen and more time watching the big game. The level of heat in the hot sauce will determine how spicy the overall dip is. For extra kick in this dip recipe, be sure to go for one that's a little spicier than you'd normally want, since much of the heat is cut by the cream cheese and dressing.
