Hot Sauce - The classic red hot sauce will give the most authentic buffalo sauce flavor. To change it up choose a green hot sauce made from jalapenos.
Cooked Chicken - Any type of cooked cubed or shredded chicken will work.
Cream Cheese - I use full fat cream cheese but low fat can also be used.
Sour Cream - I like how the tang of sour cream cuts the richness of the mayo and cream cheese.
Mayo - Make sure to choose a mayo that has a flavor you enjoy.
Cheddar Cheese - Shredded cheddar cheese is my top choice in this keto buffalo chicken dip but shredded mozzarella cheese can be used in a pinch.
Worcestershire Sauce - Worcestershire sauce is a great ingredient to have in the kitchen. It is a condiment that can be found in most grocery stores. It's made of vinegar, molasses, tamarinds, and anchovies.
Seasonings - I use garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black peppers.

Can I Make Keto Buffalo Chicken Dip In Advance?
Yes, absolutely! This buffalo chicken dip is fantastic for making ahead of time. You can completely prep the ingredients and add them all to the deep dish pie pan. Cover the pan and put it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Then bake as directed and enjoy! This is a wonderful way to save yourself some time if you are planning an event and don’t have time the day of. It’s a game-changer.
Additionally, you can bake the buffalo chicken dip ahead of time too. Just bake as the instructions state and let it cool down. Once cool, cover and put in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven. It makes great leftovers too.
Do I Have To Use Canned Chicken?
No, you don’t have to use canned chicken to make this keto buffalo chicken dip recipe. I stocked up on canned goods a few months ago when 2020 seemed so uncertain and this dip is a great way to use up some of the canned chicken I purchased. No one can tell if I made this with canned chicken.
It’s an easy and quick option that allows you to make an easy buffalo chicken dip with very little planning or notice.
I recommend using cooked chicken breast, shredded chicken, cooked chicken thighs, or rotisserie chicken if you don’t want to use canned. Additionally, you could also use turkey or other kinds of meat for some unique variety too.
Can I Make this is the Slow Cooker, Crock Pot, or Instant Pot?
Sure! Just mix the ingredients together and put them in your cooking device. Cook on low until hot and serve it right out of the crockpot.
