Mega flavorful Buffalo Chicken Dip Stuffed French Bread is your favorite creamy, cheesy, decadent dip baked right into the loaf with three cheeses all topped with crispy bacon! Crazy delicious EASY crowd pleasing appetizer perfect for parties or game day! Everyone will be begging you to make this!
I don’t know how Buffalo Chicken Dip first came about but I remember in 2004/2005 it seemed to be popping up at every party – with good reason. All variations of Buffalo Chicken Dip are creamy, cheesy and spicy. It kind of reminds me of my Jalapeno Popper Dip but with chicken.
As much as I love the Buffalo Chicken Dip, however, I found the dippers of baguette slices, crackers, celery, etc. were always just a vehicle to shovel this dip into my mouth – and in the meantime get almost as much dip on my hands as on the dippers. So I followed the lead of my Artichoke Dip Bites and Easy Spinach Dip Stuffed French Bread and decided to bake the dip right into the bread for the most delicious Buffalo Chicken Dip ever. If you don’t want to stuff the bread for one reason or another, you could just make the dip and bake it in a casserole dish but if you want to get a little crazy, fun and flirty, then I suggest stuffing the French Bread – think cheesy bread on steroids.
The base of the Buffalo Chicken Dip is the dreamy creamy trio of sour cream, mayonnaise and cream cheese. Instead of just one or the other, they are exponentially better together.
Instead of just a traditional flat buffalo sauce that’s creamy and spicy, I replaced some of the hot sauce (I like Franks RedHot Original for this recipe) with a rainbow of chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder and onion powder to give the dip multidimensional flavor (much like I do in my Baked Honey Buffalo Hot Wings). I also added some ranch seasoning for some tang, blue cheese crumbles for some more tang and freshly grated sharp cheddar and mozzarella for some mega cheesiness.
Add your chicken, stir all together and you have Buffalo Chicken Dip that’s ready to be cocooned in a French Bread “bread bowl.”
Sprinkle with more cheddar and mozzarella cheese and bake until golden bubbly deliciousness…
And then top with bacon. Lots and lots of bacon. The bacon’s salty crispiness combined with the crusty bread and smooth dip will make your mouth happy.
Then gather around for slices of decadent warm and spicy, cheesy, creamy chicken filled crusty French Bread. And be sure to be quick on the taking because this easy, baked Buffalo Chicken Dip Stuffed French Bread is so addictive it will fly off the plate!
