Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and black pepper, to taste
½ cup. chicken broth
3 stalks celery, very finely diced
2 8-oz. packages cream cheese
¾ cup hot sauce; I like Frank’s for an authentic Buffalo chicken flavor
1 small jalapeno pepper, finely minced and seeds removed
6 oz. crumbled blue cheese, divided
1 c. Mozzarella cheese, finely shredded
3 green onions, tops sliced (optional)
1 small jalapeno, sliced (optional)

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip Directions
- Season chicken breasts with salt and black pepper, to taste. Add chicken breasts, broth, celery, cream cheese, hot sauce, jalapeno pepper, and 4 oz. crumbled blue cheese to the crock of a 5 or 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or 6-7 hours on low.
- 30 minutes before serving, remove lid and shred chicken using two forks. Add shredded Mozzarella cheese and stir to combine. Add cover and continue cooking until cheese is completely melted.
- Remove lid and garnish dip with remaining blue cheese, sliced green onions, or jalapeno, if desired. Keep warm and serve with celery stalks and carrot sticks.
Tip: Add additional chicken broth after cooking to adjust consistency of the dip.
