Print Recipe


  • 2 pkgs cream cheese or light cream cheese
  • 3-4 cups shredded chicken (leftover roast chicken or use rotisserie)
  • 1 cup mexican blend cheese
  • 1 cup light ranch
  • 1 bottle franks red hot buffalo sauce or original


  • mix all of the ingredients together...mixing thoroughly
  • pour mixture into a non-stick or sprayed baking dish
  • bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes, depending on thickness of dish.



  • Use a rotisserie chicken to make things super simple and easy
  • You can use regular cheddar instead of a Mexican blend
  • make sure to grate your own cheese as pre-grated as added starch and will change the texture and flavor of this dip
  • Use a good quality cream cheese for best results (cheaper brands can be too runny)
  • I used a light ranch dressing but you can use regular if you don't have it
  • Don't sub the ranch dressing for dry ranch seasoning (important)
  • Go for low fat and lighter versions of cheese, cream cheese and ranch if you'd like to make this whole dip lighter
