The NFL football playoffs are this weekend and I’m getting my game day snacking menu ready! Spicy buffalo chicken dip has to be one of my all time favourite snacks for watching the big game and it’s perfect for diving into with chips but you can also bake it in bread! This recipe is really just a regular buffalo chicken dip that’s placed into a hollowed out loaf of bread, like a french bread, topped with even more cheese and baked until the dip has melted and the cheese is all nice and ooey and gooey and good! Yum! When you bake the bread it gets crispy so you can easily slice the loaf into individually sized pieces that are perfect finger food! This buffalo chicken french bread is a fabulous recipe to munch on while watching the game this weekend or for any other special occasion where you want to impress.
It’s also perfect for tailgating!
Don’t tell anyone but I also like to make this for dinner sometimes!

- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups chicken, cooked and diced or shredded
- 1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled (optional)
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, hot sauce, ranch seasoning, paprika, salt and pepper before gently mixing in the chicken, blue cheese, mozzarella and cheddar.
- Place the mixture into the hollow of the loaf of bread, top with the cheddar cheese.
