Have you noticed that there has been a bit of a buffalo sauce flavor to my winter? I recall having a pork-themed winter last year, which was far healthier. Buffalo sauce is just so darn good. I figure, as long as Dan continues to perfect his buffalo sauce, I may as well continue to add it to recipes. I mustn't be wasteful!
A few weeks ago Dan had a night away from home with some good friends. From what I understand, the night involved basketball-watching, bowling, beer and this very buffalo dip! He said it was a hit amongst his pals. It is sooo naughty, yet sooo delicious. If you have a guy in your home that loves party food, especially with a kick to it and needs to approve of the recipes, this is your go-to.

PREPARING EASY BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP
A party classic, this is great for a super bowl party or a girls/guys night because there's minimal work!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a round baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine:
Meat from 1 Rotisserie chicken, shredded
8-oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cup
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden on top, hot and bubbly.
Don't have rotisserie chicken? Chicken breasts turn out great with this Perfect Instant Pot Chicken Breasts recipe- then you can shred your own chicken.
Shred your own cheese - it tastes better, it melts better. It's just better
Frank's RedHot Sauce tastes great for your buffalo sauce if you don't want to follow the homemade version above.
Sprinkle some thinly sliced green onions on top.
Some people like to have ranch dressing on the side to dip your chips and dip into.
