Wondering what to serve with buffalo chicken dip? Believe it or not, there are endless possibilities.
I’ve rounded up some of the tastiest side dishes to serve with this beloved dip.
The old standbys like carrots and celery are always a crowd favorite.
But if you want to take everyone’s favorite party dip to new heights, check out some of these excellent options below.
From french fries to pretzels and even a cheesy quesadilla, there are no wrong answers to what to serve with buffalo chicken dip.
1. Celery and Carrot Sticks
Nothing goes quite as well with buffalo anything than carrots and celery.
They’re crispy, crunchy, and a great way to sneak in a few veggies while indulging in a cheesy dip.
A bag of baby carrots and a head of celery are also one of the more affordable veggie options at the supermarket.
They’re an excellent choice if you want to keep the cost as low as possible.
And there’s no need to chop (or even wash in most cases) baby carrots!
2. Popeye’s French Fries
Perfectly seasoned copycat Popeye’s French fries are amazing on their own.
Pair them with cheesy buffalo chicken dip and walk away from your next potluck as the MVP!
Recreating that classic spicy Cajun pop of spices is easy to whip up at home.
These crispy seasoned french fries incorporate a homemade blend of Cajun spices.
They include chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, and turmeric.
These tasty and crispy seasoned fries pair so well with the creaminess of buffalo chicken dip.
3. Homemade Crescent Rolls
Crescent rolls in a tube are an option, but they taste less buttery and delicious than homemade ones.
Homemade crescent rolls are easier than you think.
The dough comes together in a snap, and rolling your delicate crescent rolls is pretty fun!
They’re insanely buttery and tender with that slight hint of sweetness.
They’re great on their own but even better when dunked in a dip.
4. Homemade Pita Chips
I sometimes put out soft pita bread with my dips, but giving them a quick toast provides an excellent crunch.
Plus, crispy pita chips allow you to pick up more dip in a single dunk. Win-win!
The great thing about toasting your pita chips is that you can play around with flavors.
Salt and pepper seasoned pita chips are a great place to start, but it doesn’t have to end there.
Get creative with seasoning. Try everything bagel seasoning, go crazy with garlic, or make it Mediterranean with Za’atar seasoning.
5. Cheesy Breadsticks
Making homemade breadsticks sounds intimidating, but this recipe is straightforward.
And nothing smells better than homemade bread!
It pairs a simple white bread dough recipe with cheesy and delicious toppings.
Pair your breadsticks with mozzarella, butter, garlic, and Parmesan cheese for that recreated takeout flavor.
6. Buffalo Chicken Pizza
If you want to skip the dip and go straight to party pizza, this buffalo chicken dip checks all the boxes.
It comes together in a snap, and your guests will demand you make this for every party from here on out.
It incorporates pre-made pizza dough to make your life easier, but you can always make your own if you have time.
Top that pizza with spicy, creamy, and savory buffalo chicken dip, and pop it in the oven.
It’s tender, crispy, and sinfully gooey.
7. White Lily Cornbread
There are a few instances where White Lily cornbread is the wrong choice for a side dish.
It’s lightly flavored, rich, and crumbly and doesn’t possess the same level of sweetness as classic cornbread.
The subtle flavors of this cornbread are the ultimate vehicle for buffalo chicken dip.
It lets those spiky and creamy flavors shine and offers a mouth-watering texture.
The best part? It comes together in less than 30 minutes!
8. Eggy Bread
Don’t get eggy bread confused with French toast.
While they look similar, eggy bread is savory, while French toast is sweet.
That means that eggy bread works for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
It boasts a savory and delicate flavor that’s perfect for party dips.
Cut it into manageable slices, or pile your buffalo chicken dip on top for a fantastic dinner dish.
You don’t always need to throw a party to whip up buffalo chicken dip.
9. Homemade Soft Pretzels
Is there anything better than a homemade soft pretzel?
How about a homemade soft pretzel dunked in buffalo chicken dip? The thought of it makes my mouth water.
This recipe creates the softest and most tender pretzel that begs to be dunked.
Shaping soft pretzels is a test of skill and patience, but it’s ok if your pretzels look a little wonky.
With a buffalo chicken dip sidekick, no one will notice or care!
10. Air Fryer Potato Wedges
Where are all my air fryer fanatics? I love any excuse to whip out my air fryer.
You can call them potato wedges, Jojo’s, or beefy steak fries. No matter what you call them, they’re incredibly delicious.
Crisp on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, and so easy. All thanks to your handy dandy air fryer.
With just a light dusting of spices, these homemade potato wedges are sure to be a big hit, with or without dip.
11. Bell Pepper Strips
Bell peppers provide an excellent crunch and bright, earthy flavors that pair perfectly with buffalo chicken dip.
What I love most about using bell peppers is that it adds so much color to the plate.
Thinly slice red, green, and yellow bell peppers for a fantastic pop of beautiful colors.
If you want to get fancy, toss freshly sliced bell peppers in a mixture of balsamic vinegar and oil to bring out their natural sweetness.
12. Soft Pretzel Bites
Twisted pretzels will impress your guests so long as you master the technique.
These soft pretzel bites are just as delicious if you want to skip the twisty bits.
Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than these soft pretzel bites.
Before popping them in boiling water, they quickly chop them into small, manageable pieces.
They’re the perfect size for aggressive dip-dunking!
13. Oven-Baked Potato Wedges
Looking for a healthier potato alternative?
These oven-baked potato wedges are much easier to make than french fries and healthier, too!
They have a light coating of yummy spices like garlic, onion powder, and Parmesan cheese that crisps up like a dream in the oven.
They’re crispy and crunchy on the outside with tender and fluffy insides. So good!
14. Cheese Quesadilla
Why just serve boring old tortilla shells as a size when you could transform them into cheese quesadillas?
Cheese quesadillas are my go-to midnight snack.
They’re so easy, I could make them in my sleep (and probably have at some point).
They make an excellent dip companion because they deliver even more cheese to your tasty buffalo chicken dip.
However, if you serve cheese quesadillas alongside veggies, your guests will seriously neglect the veggies!
15. Chick-fil-A Waffle Fries
You don’t need a special waffle fry cutter to recreate Chick-Fil-A’s tasty waffle fries at home.
With clever knife skills and patience, making waffle fries is easy (and well worth the extra effort).
The best part is that they don’t require any fancy seasoning blends.
A simple deep fry and dusting of salt are all you need for this in-demand side dish.
And the shape of waffle fries allows you to scoop a generous portion of buffalo chicken dip in one fell swoop.
16. Roasted Green Beans (Garlic & Parmesan)
Classic raw veggies are great unless you’ve tried garlic and Parmesan roasted green beans!
They’re so delightfully crispy and crunchy and deliver bold flavors.
While they look tedious, they’re easier than you think. Plus, they come together in under 30 minutes.
They’re flavorful and crispy on the outside, with subtle earthy green bean flavors that demand aggressive dunking.
17. Sweet Potato Fries
And last but certainly not least: sweet potato fries!
Sweet potato fries are a great way to celebrate the spicy and creamy notes from buffalo chicken dip.
The added sweetness helps tame the spiciness of the dip, making it an excellent option for those that don’t like a lot of spice.
They’re just as easy to whip up as regular french fries but add delightful, starchy sweetness.
