Can you make this dip ahead of time?
This Greek yogurt buffalo chicken dip reheats well but is best served immediately. We snack on leftovers through the week with crackers to dip and even put it over toasted bread as a spread.
Can I use pre cooked chicken?
Definitely! To make this recipe even quicker you can use a rotisserie chicken. I love the rotisserie chicken from Costco. Check out what else I pickup from Costco, here. The nutrition facts for the Greek yogurt buffalo chicken dip will change if you use a rotisserie chicken. You could also use baked or barbecued chicken breast as well. This recipe provides instructions for cooking the chicken in the instant pot prior to making the dip.
I am using almost 1 1/2 lbs. of chicken for this recipe. The only reason being my store has not had exact 1 1/2 lbs. packages lately. To be exact look for 1.6 lbs. when you pick up chicken breast to make this recipe. The recipe ingredients and steps will be the same with whatever weight you use but the protein will change up or down depending on the size of your chicken.
Does this dip taste like Greek yogurt?
Not even the slightest bit. The cheese, buffalo flavor and chicken blend very well with the Greek yogurt and you would never guess it was the main ingredient in this Greek yogurt buffalo chicken dip.
How do you cook the chicken in the instant pot?
Simply place the raw chicken in the instant pot, pour in the chicken broth, seal the lid and valve and pressure cook for 10 minutes. If your chicken is frozen cook for 12-15 minutes.
What instant pot do you have?
I have the Instant Pot 6qt Duo Pressure Cooker. I have honestly never used any other setting than “pressure cook.” We make all sorts of things in our Instant Pot like Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup and Macro Friendly Chili. We have had this instant pot for years without any issues and I would suggest it. Makes the perfect chicken too for this Greek yogurt buffalo chicken dip.
Ingredients and Substitutes:
These are the main ingredients and substitutions. See recipe card below for full ingredients list and instructions for Greek yogurt buffalo chicken dip.
Chicken: this recipe provides instructions for cooking raw chicken in the instant pot to shred but you can also use pre cooked chicken like a rotisserie chicken.
Cream Cheese: to limit the fat this recipe calls for 1/3 less fat cream cheese, you can use your favorite.
Cheddar Cheese: I am using medium cheddar cheese, shredded. You can use your favorite cheese but do note that the lower the fat of the cheese the less melty it gets so I would not suggest substituting here. Alternatively you could use less with a combination of laughing cow cheese wedges and cheese flavored seasoning. I have not tested that though.
Greek Yogurt: Fage is my favorite nonfat plain Greek yogurt to cook with. I find the taste is more subtle than others and mixes great in savory dishes.
Hot Sauce: this recipe calls for Franks Red Hot Sauce, you can use your favorite hot sauce in place of Franks.
Lite Maple Syrup: to spare some calories while adding some sweetness this recipe uses lite maple syrup. You can substitute with 100% pure maple or honey.

This was super easy and delicious…even my hubby who says he hates Greek yogurt went back for thirds!
Super easy, and so delicious! My husband loves it! Will be my go to App recipe!
Yum! I made this for a work potluck with some celery, carrots, and scoops. It did not disappoint! I had several people ask me what my “secret ingredient” was that made it so much better than the typical cream cheese, ranch, hot sauce dip. No one believed me when I told them it was a macro recipe….I will definitely be saving this one 🙂
