Buffalo Chicken Banana Peppers

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Banana peppers are not spicy-hot, they’re more tangy so they make a great contrast to spicy buffalo chicken dip, like in this recipe.


  • 3/4 to 1 cup chopped cooked chicken, from can or leftover rotisserie
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (half an 8 ounce package)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot wing sauce or more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 banana peppers, halved and seeded


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together chicken and next 4 ingredients. Spoon mixture into banana pepper halves, and place on prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until peppers are softened. Drizzle with additional hot wing sauce, if desired.
  3. Garnish with hot wing sauce, hot honey, cilantro or however you like it
