I’m a sucker for buffalo chicken and this stuffed buffalo chicken doesn’t disappoint! It has the perfect balance of spicy buffalo sauce cooled down with a little ranch dressing. The cheesy filling is seasoned with ranch too!
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!
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.
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!
