Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients

This hot dip starts with the shredded chicken. You can either cook your own chicken, or you can pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store, or even some canned chicken. If you have a stand mixer it’s easy to shred your chicken with the paddle attachment. Simply place the cooked and boneless chicken into the mixing bowl using the flat beater attachment and turn the mixer to a low speed for about 30 seconds to one minute. You can also shred the chicken with forks.
Want to create a more traditional wing flavor? Substitute blue cheese for the shredded cheddar cheese. You could also use Monterrey Jack or mozzarella cheese, or create a blend of different cheeses.
faYou have lots of choices for what to serve with your dip. Try putting together a platter with a variety of chips and veggies. Chips might include crackers, pretzels, or even pitas. For veggies, you could serve baby carrots, celery sticks, cucumbers, and bell pepper slices. Just take the lid off the crockpot and let everyone dig in with their favorites.
