You guys, fall is right around the corner, so it’s time to break out the fall Instant Pot recipes and game day recipes! Seriously, it’s my absolute favorite time of year!

If you make Buffalo chicken dip in the pressure cooker, there’s no need to plan way ahead. You can whip up this easy Instant Pot appetizer at the last minute and be ready to eat in no time!

How to Make Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip

  • Arrange butter over chicken. Cover with lid, turn vent to Sealing position, and hit PRESSURE COOK for 10 minutes

  • When pin drops, open lid, add cream cheese and ranch dressing, and shred chicken with hand mixer until well blended. Or, remove chicken and shred with forks, then return to pot, and mix in ranch and cream cheese until mixture is well blended and creamy. You can remove some of the cooking liquid for a thicker dip.
  • Pour chicken dip into an oven-safe casserole dish, top with shredded cheese, and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until dip is bubbling



Recipe was made in 6-quart Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. Dip can be served immediately after shredding or topped with shredded cheese and baked for a thicker, cheesier dip. 
For a thicker dip, remove some of the liquid before shredding chicken.

    Dee, this worked perfectly for me and I am forever grateful to you. I took out about 3/4 cup of the liquid when I took the chicken out to shred and the consistency was perfect at the end. Made it for the whole family for Christmas and now they finally think I bring something to the table (no pun intended 😉).5 stars
