Chicken – Use leftovers if you have them! Or make it ahead – You can cook a whole chicken in your Instant Pot on meal prep day & shred it – or bake it in the oven – Or – boil 5-6 chicken breasts & shred them – I use a hand mixer to shred chicken fast – Or – you can use a Rotisserie chicken to save time!

Cream Cheese – If you’re prepping ahead – go ahead & set this out to soften – not mandatory

Cheddar – It’s always better to shred a block than use pre-shredded because packaged shredded cheese has a few additives (& carbs)

Monterey Jack – Block is better!

Crumbled Blue Cheese – If you don’t have any good crumbled Blue Cheese you can substitute it with ½ cup Blue Cheese Dressing + ½ Cup Mozzarella. 

Frank’s Hot Sauce – The Original Buffalo Chicken Hot Sauce – (Read More Below) – I used Frank’s, but you can swap it for you have if you need to!

Chopped Celery – Gives it a little crunch – & It only takes a minute to rinse & chop

Green Onions – Green Chiles – Jalapeno Slices – Crumbled Bacon – For Garnish – Optional!

How Buffalo Chicken Became A Thing

The year was 1964 – & Teressa Bellissimo – (owner of Anchor Bar Buffalo, New York) got crafty with chicken wings after her son Dominic asked her for a snack to pass around the bar at midnight.

Either out of frugality or brilliance she grabbed some wings – a part of the chicken that folks were throwing away back then – deep-fried them – covered them in hot sauce – & served ’em up with celery stalks & blue cheese dressing.

They were a hit. Word spread quickly – & that’s how Buffalo Chicken Wings became a thing.

Serving Size & Suggestions

Count on this recipe serving 10 – 12 people – depending on how big the serving spoon is:) If you’re making this dip for a party you may want to double up – you won’t regret it. It’s fabulous with celery (of course) – you may want to try it with Keto chips or pork rinds.
