Notes

This can be made ahead of time and be stored in fridge before baking up to 48hrs. If doing this, take out of fridge and bring to room temperature before baking or adjust baking time to be longer.
Frank’s Red Hot: It really just depends on how spicy you (and your guests) enjoy things. I do about 10oz and it’s a happy medium. 
Chicken: You could use canned chicken, a Rotisserie chicken, or do this method: Place chicken breasts in pot on oven. Cover with chicken stock or broth until chicken is completely covered. Season with salt and pepper and other seasonings if desired. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn heat down to medium-low and cook for 6-8 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and place in a bowl. Shred with two forks.
Liquid Smoke: This isn’t traditionally in Buffalo Chicken Dip, but it definitely kicks the flavor up!
