Buffalo Chicken Dip is a popular party appetizer known for its spicy, creamy, and cheesy taste. Making it in an Instant Pot simplifies the process and locks in flavors, creating a delicious dip that’s perfect for gatherings, game days, or as a savory snack.


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Chopped green onions or crumbled blue cheese for garnish


  1. Place the chicken breasts in the Instant Pot. Pour the buffalo sauce over the chicken and toss to coat evenly.
  2. Secure the lid of the Instant Pot and set the valve to the sealing position. Cook on manual high pressure for 10 minutes.
  3. Once the cooking time is up, do a quick release by carefully turning the valve to the venting position to release the pressure.
  4. Open the lid and remove the chicken breasts. Shred the chicken using two forks.
  5. Set the Instant Pot to sauté mode. Return the shredded chicken to the pot with the buffalo sauce.
  6. Add the cream cheese, ranch dressing, sour cream, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and garlic powder to the pot. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined and the cheeses have melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Once the dip is heated through and creamy, turn off the Instant Pot.
  8. Transfer the buffalo chicken dip to a serving bowl. Garnish with chopped green onions or crumbled blue cheese, if desired.
  9. Serve the dip warm with tortilla chips, celery sticks, carrot sticks, or your favorite dippers.
