Mild Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Chicken DipNovember 22, 2009 • By Tara Ziegmont
Buffalo chicken dip is the perfect easy appetizer to take to any potluck or party! This buffalo chicken dip recipe is simple, quick, and easy with only 5 ingredients and all made in the microwave!
I love Buffalo Chicken Dip.
The spicy buffalo wing sauce juxtaposed with the creamy salad dressing renders me incapable of walking away from the table whenever it’s served.
It’s a sickness, I think.
The first time I shared a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip, I shared my coworker’s instructions. She uses whole chicken breasts and shreds them before making the dip.
We aren’t quite that put together around here, so when we need shredded chicken, we use canned. I buy chunk chicken at the grocery store, and I shred it myself after draining the liquid.
This particular recipe is so mild that my kids beg to have it for dinner. It’s by far their favorite meal, probably because we have it like twice a year.
I wrote the recipe below the way Joe and I like it, still very mild but with a little zing. When he is making it specifically for our children, he doubles everything except the RedHot sauce, so effectively making it 1/6 of a cup of hot sauce in the recipe below. There is still plenty of hot sauce flavor without the heat, and that’s what our kids really like.
Even making it that way, every single time, one of the girls says, “Wow, Daddy made this a little hotter than normal this time,” and I laugh silently because it. always. gets. said. even though he uses the exact same recipe and measures carefully every time.
Kids, I tell ya.

Buffalo chicken dip is a family favorite at my house. In fact, we eat it on all the major holidays and occasions and every time we have to take a dish to a potluck or party. This is our go-to recipe, and it’s so mild that it is always all gone when we get home (to the chagrin of the children).
I was not compensated, and I received nothing free in exchange for posting this recipe and information. I just like the dip.
