How to Make Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Mushrooms

These mushrooms are easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Gently clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Remove stems. Place mushroom caps, upside down, on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and topped with a baking rack. Bake the mushrooms in a preheated oven for 15 minutes. Let the liquid drain out. This will help to keep the mushrooms from getting soggy.

While the mushroom caps are cooking, prepare the buffalo chicken filling. In a large bowl stir together cream cheese, cooked chopped chicken, cooked bacon, onion powder, garlic powder, hot sauce, ranch dressing, and shredded cheddar cheese. Season with salt and black pepper.

Spoon the chicken mixture into the baked mushroom cavities. Bake for an additional 15 minutes. Garnish the baked mushrooms with parsley and green onions.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • How to keep stuffed mushrooms from getting soggy? Don’t soak the mushrooms in water when cleaning them. Gently wipe with a damp cloth.
  • I use portobello mushrooms. You can use any mushrooms that you prefer. Cremini mushrooms, white button mushrooms, and baby bella mushrooms all work great.
  • The number of stuffed mushrooms you get from this recipe will depend on the size of your mushrooms.
  • I use rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this recipe. You can use any chicken you have on hand. Chicken breasts, thighs, tenderloins, or canned chicken.
  • Here is our recipe for Homemade Ranch Dressing: https://www.plainchicken.com/copycat-outback-ranch-dressing/
  • I use Frank’s Hot Sauce or Frank’s Buffalo Wings Sauce.

  • Can stuffed mushrooms be made in advance? Stuffed mushrooms are best if made the day you plan on serving them. 
    • If you want to pre-fill the caps and refrigerate them and bake them later, you can do that. Be aware that because of the high moisture content when the mushrooms cook again the filling may slide out of the mushroom when somebody goes to bite into it.
    • You can make the filling ahead of time and refrigerate it for up to 3 days.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    • They are best reheated in the air fryer or oven.
