Next, put it on your grill at 225 degrees until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 165. Time will vary depending on the size of your chicken.

How to Eat Smoked Buffalo Chicken Dip
Smoked buffalo dip is always a party favorite. Why? It combines all the best attributes of a good appetizer — gooey, creamy, spicy, substantial and warm — in one cohesive dish.
While many dishes pair well with this heavenly dip, we want to talk about some creative ways to serve it. Here it goes:
- Inside crescent rolls: Imagine taking a bite of a small baked crescent roll and experiencing the warm, gooey, unbelievably delicious flavor of buffalo chicken dip waiting on the inside. Stuffed crescent rolls make the perfect at-home appetizer for game day, and they’re just as great for a movie night snack.
- On a pizza: This barbecue chicken dip already contains everything you’d want on top of a steaming slice of cheesy pizza. Go ahead and slather the gooey goodness on top of your flatbread.

- Over french fries: Slather your french fries with smoked chicken dip and experience cheesy fries on a whole new level.
- Mixed with pasta: You can’t go wrong with mixing this spicy, creamy dip into your favorite pasta dish.
- Inside wontons or egg rolls: Following the same logic as buffalo chicken crescent rolls, smoked chicken dip egg rolls or wontons are mess-free and easy to deliver.
- On top of potato skins: Imagine taking an undressed potato skin and topping it with a scoop of barbecue chicken dip before adding bacon bits and even more cheese. If you’re not drooling already, consider finishing this appetizer off with a dash of green onions and sour cream!
