Chicken breasts
3 large boneless skinless, boiled and shredded
Cream cheese
8 oz (225 grams)
Ranch dressing
1 cup
Hot sauce
1 cup
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp
Garlic powder
1 tsp
Green onion
1/2 cup (chopped)
Mozzarella cheese
1.5 cups (shredded and divided)
1.5 cups (shredded and divided)


Step 01

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat if your chicken is not yet cooked. Add the chicken breasts to the pot and return to a boil. Remove from heat and cover with a lid. Allow your chicken to poach for approximately 25 minutes. When fully cooked, remove from the pot and let cool.

Step 02

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and spray a 9x9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 03

In a medium saucepot over medium-low heat, combine the cream cheese, ranch dressing, hot sauce, black pepper and garlic powder. Whisk constantly until the cream cheese has dissolved in the ranch and hot sauce. Take the saucepot off the heat.

Step 04

Add the chicken, green onion, one cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese, and one cup of the shredded cheddar cheese to the saucepot. Stir well to combine. Transfer to a baking pan and top with remaining mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

Step 05

Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the sides are bubbling. Set oven to broil and cook your buffalo chicken dip for another 2-3 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
