what is the best way to shred chicken?
Traditionally, chicken is shredded using a couple of forks by pulling it apart. However, my favorite way is to use a stand mixer! All you do is cut up the chicken breasts into smaller chunks and then put them in your mixer on a low speed. Keep an eye on it so they don’t fly out!
I love doing it this way as it is soooooo easy! It takes the frustration out of shredding chicken.
can you use hot sauce instead?
I don’t recommend it, no. Buffalo sauce has some added flavors you don’t want to miss out on! In a pinch, you can add some butter and your favorite spices to some hot sauce you have on hand.

You sure can! All you have to do is pack it into an airtight container and toss it in the freezer. As simple as that!

Generally speaking, this will last refrigerated for about 3-5 days since there is the chicken in it. You can also freeze it for 1-3 months.

how to make buffalo chicken dip
Start by pouring the cheese and shredded chicken into the crockpot. Next, add the half-block of cream cheese into the crockpot.
Now pour in the wing sauce! 1/2 cup will make a medium heat wing sauce whereas a full cup will make it very hot.
Mix the ingredients, place the lid, and set on low heat. Serve once hot and bubbly. Enjoy!

What Size Crockpot Should I Use?
For this recipe, I would use a 5-quart crockpot. You may also want to use a crockpot liner which allows for less mess when it is time to clean up. If you want to double your recipe a 10-quart crockpot may be more what you are looking for.
