This buffalo chicken dip is thick and flavorful! You need only 5 ingredients. Serve with chips, crackers, or fresh veggies.

This Dairy Free Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip is inspired by my Buffalo Ranch Chicken Casserole. Both are dairy free and very satisfying!

I can’t even tell you how often I make this for guests. It’s definitely the appetizer I make the most and it’s high requested by my friends, husband, and son. If you love buffalo chicken, make this dip!

The best news? You’ll only need five simple ingredients.

For this recipe you’ll need (full list of ingredients and instructions are in the recipe card below):

  • Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • Ranch Dressing (if dairy free, use my recipe for Easy Ranch Dressing)
  • Fully cooked chicken
  • Eggs
  • Salt

What ranch dressing is best to use?

Use any store-bought ranch dressing. If you’d like to make your own, I recommend my Easy Ranch Dressing. It’s super simple because everything just goes in the blender.

Can you use a different hot sauce?

I recommend sticking with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. While I love other hot sauces and use them for a variety of dishes, this dip was built around the consistency and flavor of Frank’s.

What chicken is best to use?

You have two great options here:

  • If you want to keep this super fast shred a store-bought fully cooked rotisserie chicken.
  • If you have a little extra time boil or sauté skinless and boneless chicken breasts. Then use a fork to shred the cooked chicken before adding to the dip. You can do this step the day before if you like.

Can you omit the eggs?

The eggs in this dip act as a binder. If you omit the eggs the flavor will be the same but the dip will be liquidy. This dip is intended to be thick so I personally would keep them in.

Can you make this dip ahead of time?

Yes. I like to make this dip several hours before it’s time to serve it when we’re entertaining. Just cover in saran wrap and refrigerate. Then pop it in the oven 40 to 45 minutes before guests arrive.

How to serve this dip

Enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips or crackers. If looking for a lower carb or Whole30 snack, pair this dip with raw veggies. I even love it scooped into potato skins!

    This is great! Thank you! Any idea if it’s possible to do in the crockpot to take to a Christmas event to make it portable?
