I’ve always been a big fan of buffalo chicken and we regularly go to Buffalo Wild Wings. Their naked tenders are delicious dipped in a little mild sauce with some ranch or blue cheese!

It gets expensive to eat there too often though, so I’ve been experimenting with loads of buffalo chicken recipes.

I’ll link them all for you at the bottom of this post, so be sure to check out all the buffalo chicken goodness I’ve been sharing

This stuffed buffalo chicken recipe is super easy to prepare and I know y’all are going to love it.

My spinach stuffed chicken is still the most popular recipe on this site, but I have a feeling this keto buffalo chicken version might just give it a run for it’s money. 😉 

How to make this stuffed buffalo chicken recipe:

To start, we’ll mix up the cheesy filling. This is just three ingredients: cream cheese, grated cheddar, and ranch seasoning.

If you’re following a clean keto diet, you’ll want to use this Primal Palate ranch seasoning.  Clean ingredients and a great taste!

You can try swapping in blue cheese for the cheddar, if that’s your style. I’m not a fan myself. 🙂 

Combine all that and slice into the side of a chicken breast to form a little pocket. Stuff the cheese in the pocket.

This is really simple to do. Check out my video in this post to see how I do it!

Once your chicken breasts are filled with the cream cheese mixture, brush some buffalo sauce over the top and pop them in the oven.

These will bake in about 25 minutes and I like to brush more buffalo sauce on top every 10 minutes or so. 

When it’s time to serve, drizzle with ranch dressing, sprinkle with parsley, and dig in!

This cheesy stuffed chicken is so filling and will seriously be a total hit!

  4. Spoon the cream cheese mixture evenly into piece of chicken.

  1. Made this for dinner tonight, we’re carb cycling and this made a perfect low carb meal. I get such a hankering for buffalo sauce, and my husband isn’t a huge fan, so this was a great way to sneak it in! I used Buffalo Wild Wings Medium Sauce, sooooo good.

    1. Karly Campbell

      You can use a thermometer to check for doneness next time and pull it when it reaches 165. Just be careful to test the meat and not the filling.

  2. Will agree it needs more time in the oven. I put it back in for another 10 minutes and it was perfect.

    1. Karly Campbell

      I haven’t, but I think it will freeze okay. My only concern would be the cream cheese, but even then I think it’ll do fine. 🙂

  3. Pat Rhodes

    I made this for dinner last night!! Great dish! I wrapped two slices of bacon around each chicken breast

  4. Lindsey McFadden

    Made this tonight and it was great, very filling as well! Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. betsy hutton

    I don’t have chicken breasts on hand but i do have skinless boneless chicken thighs Could i use them

  6. Hi there!! I see the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of grated cheese but there is no mention of where it’s supposed to go?? Cream cheese mixture?

    1. Karly Campbell

      This could probably be cooked in the crockpot on low for 3-4 hours, but I haven’t test it.

  7. LeeAnn Davies

    Made this for supper tonight and was a great hit. We paired it with sweet potato fries and coleslaw. It was awesome. Will definitely make again. Quick and easy . Thank you for posting it.

  8. I am making this for supper right now! I love buffalo chicken everything and am excited to try this! Thank you for sharing the recipe. I am pairing it with roasted asparagus

  9. The name of your recipe is Buffalo Ranch Stuffed Chicken but when you scroll down to the actual recipe its called BBQ Ranch Stuffed Chicken. Im not trying to be a hater, just thought you should know

    1. Karly Campbell

      Oh thank you!! My BBQ version is similar so I used the same recipe card and forgot to change that detail. 🙂

  10. Very good but 25 minutes is not nearly enough time, especially for two breasts. I had to reheat my piece of chicken twice because it was still kinda raw after 40 minutes.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Josh! I’m not sure what you mean by 2 breasts. I’ve not had an issue getting the chicken cooked through at around 25 minutes, but every oven is different and I definitely recommend using a thermometer to test for doneness.

      1. Rachel Clarke

        I had the same trouble with cooking mine I pulled out at 30 minutes and was very much still raw in the middle

        1. Karly Campbell

          Hi Rachel, much more accurate to use a thermometer to check for doneness. The recipe does state 25-35 minutes or until it reaches 165. Some ovens run hotter than others and all chicken breasts are different sizes, so there is no real set time for chicken. You just cook until it’s finished.

    1. Karly Campbell

      The filling is pretty rich, so we usually keep it simple with a green salad and some form of steamed or roasted veggie. Cauliflower rice or mash would be good too. 🙂

  11. I made this recipe for the first time and the entire family really liked it. They all said I needed to keep it on repeat. It’s a great low carb meal. I think next time I might only use 1/2 of the dry ranch. It was a little salty although I didn’t add any extra salt.

    1. Karly Campbell

      If you use the ranch seasoning mix instead of the ranch dip mix, it’s a bit less salty. I just realized this myself not too long ago, but there’s a lot less sodium in the seasoning blend than the dip blend. I need to update the post about that. 🙂

  12. Just had this for supper with my son. We both loved it. This is absolutely delicious, and will definitely be made again and again. My only question or concern is the protein content you have in the post. In you’re post you have the protein of 6 ounce chicken breast at 20 grams. When I entered my chicken at 180 grams which is slightly more than 6 ounces Carb Manager App said that was 56 grams of protein. I loved this and will definitely make again but will have to watch my protein so I don’t go over my allowed or recommended amounts.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Sorry about that! Sometimes the recipe calculator goes a little crazy if things aren’t entered exactly how it wants it and I missed it this time around. I just reran the numbers and I’m at 59g protein. Sorry for the confusion!
