Can I Make Buffalo Chicken Dip With Canned Chicken?

Yes! If you are pressed for time, by all means use canned chicken. Just remember that the canned chicken will have sodium and some liquid in the can, so adjust salt and broth accordingly. And since you don’t have to cook the chicken, just warm it up, the time it needs to be in the crockpot will be much less.
