So now that I’ve got ya wanting to try this Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip, let’s jump right into it! You’ll be shocked at how easy this recipe is!

Start out with two boneless skinless chicken breasts in a two quart or larger slow cooker.  You can use either frozen or thawed chicken breasts, I usually use frozen because my chicken breasts are almost always frozen.

After adding the chicken breasts to the Crockpot, add in 1/2 cup of water.

Grab a packet of Ranch Salad Dressing Mix and get ready to sprinkle it over the chicken in the Crockpot slow cooker. I use the classic version – not buttermilk, and any brand will do.

Now sprinkle one packet of Ranch salad dressing mix over the chicken in the Crockpot slow cooker. The Ranch seasoning gives this Buffalo Chicken Dip such a good flavor!

Once the Ranch seasoning is added, pour in twelve ounces (that’s one regular sized bottle) of Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce. You can use any brand of Buffalo sauce you like but I personally think that Frank’s is the best.
