How to Make Keto Buffalo Chicken Dip
First of all, you don’t have to add chicken to this dip. I’ve had a lot of people ask for a buffalo dip without chicken. It’s perfectly find to leave it out.
If you do want chicken in your dip, start by cooking and shredding the chicken.
Start by preheating your oven to 350° F.
In a saucepan, add the cream cheese, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and butter. Stir it with a spatula until it’s melted and creamy. Then add in the shredded chicken, half of the shredded mozzarella, and the blue cheese dressing.
I always reserve the blue cheese crumbles to sprinkle on the top, but that’s up to you.
Stir it all together, then take it off the heat and pour it into a baking dish or ramekin. Top it with the remaining mozzarella.
You need to bake the dip for in the oven for about 15 minutes.
What to Serve Buffalo Dip With
I suggest serving this dip with low carb veggies, like cucumbers, celery, broccoli, cauliflower and bell pepper slices.
But here’s the genius of this dip. If you’re serving it to others, you can also include crackers and sliced baguette. Everyone loves this dip, so those who aren’t on a keto diet won’t even know you’ve brought a keto dip.
If I have left over dip (which never happens), I like to make buffalo stuffed peppers with it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Frank’s Red Hot Sauce keto?
Yes! It is a great way to add flavor to your keto recipes. It has 0 grams of net carbs!
I don’t like blue cheese, what can I substitute?
Blue cheese isn’t for everyone! Substitute this homemade low carb ranch dressing for the blue cheese dressing. Just leave the blue cheese crumbles out or add some cheddar cheese in it’s place. Check this list for great cheese options.
Can I Make It Ahead?
Yes, you can mix up the buffalo dip in the saucepan, then add it to your baking dish and then pause at that stage. Cover the dish with tin foil or plastic wrap and put it in the fridge or freezer until you’re ready to use it.
Then all you need to do is put it in the oven. If it’s been in the refrigerator, it will take 20 minutes to bake, instead of 15. And if it’s frozen, it will take 30-35 minutes to bake.
If you’re freezing it, be sure your baking dish can handle the change from cold to hot, so it doesn’t shatter in the oven.
