I've been waiting a WHOLE YEAR for SUPER BOWL. The one day a year when I cast all thoughts of calories and fats to the wind!
Do you like Buffalo Chicken Wings? Hot and Spicy? Try this dip and you will have the great taste of a chicken wing without the hassle of those ugly little wing bones.
Use hearty chips for scoopers but even better, scoop the dip with a piece of celery and make this dish really healthy....*wink*wink*
Start with all the ingredients, I used a rotisserie chicken, ate the skin :) :) :) and picked off the breast meat.
Be sure to use Franks Red Hot Sauce. It tastes like the real deal. Maybe it is the real deal?
I served it with chips and celery pieces for dipping. Both were really good.
BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP
1 lb. cooked chicken breasts. Cook anyway you like and then shred.
6 oz. Franks Hot Sauce. Do not substitute for anything else.
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. Ranch dressing
4 oz. shredded sharp Cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack or a combo of both
Celery or chips for dipping or use both
Pre-heat oven to 375~. Combine the cooked chicken and the Franks Hot Sauce together. Spread in an oven proof baking dish to form an even layer.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine cream cheese and Ranch dressing, stirring until hot and smooth. Pour mixture evenly over chicken mixture.
Bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Then sprinkle cheese on top and bake another 15-20 minutes until bubbly. Do not over bake or the cheese will get browned and harden.
Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Serve with celery cut into cross-wise pieces or sturdy chips for dipping.
You can also use half blue cheese dressing and half Ranch dressing, and half blue cheese and half cheddar cheese in the topping.
This recipe doubles easily.
