  • Cook's Notes:
  • Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack cheeses are a great substitution for the Cheddar.

I love this dip! I made a few changes: I used 2 cans of chicken (12.5 oz each), 2 stalks of celery finely chopped, I didn't use blue cheese or ranch dressing instead I used 1 16oz container of sour cream and a packet of ranch dip seasoning and made the ranch dip. I added it all to the mix. The ranch dip has a better taste than the dressing to me. All in all the dip was a hit at girls night....they are already asking me to make it for our next get together :)

I followed as described but turned out dripping with buttery fatty liquid. Probably because of all the cheese.

Insane. INSANE! I made to recipe, except I layered it instead of mixing it all together; it just looks better that way, in my opinion. I used Hidden Valley Ranch and Paul Newman Chunky Blue Cheese dressings, and Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce. Awesome.

Great recipe, though I made a few changes that made it simpliar to make: 3 boneless chix breasts (or 3 cans, tho the real thing tastes better), boiled and shredded, mix with 1/2 - 1 cup of hot sauce. Then add 2 packages of softened cream cheese (do NOT use the fat free, it doesn't mix well, you may use the 1/3 less fat) add 1 cup of GOOD blue cheese dressing; add 1- 3 celery stalks coarsely chopped. Mix well, taste and make sure it is spicy enough for you. Add cheddar cheese on top, bake 350 for 20-30 min. Serve with tortilla chips

I have made this before and my Husband loves it, I shred a Rotisserie Chicken in a baking dish, pour half a bottle of wing sauce over that, mix 8oz Ranch dressing with 4oz softened cream cheese pour that on top as third layer and then 8oz of mozzarella cheese for top layer. Bake in 350f oven until hot and bubbly.

i made this by boiling a large whole chicken, using the breasts for this and the rest for chicken and dumplings. i used a wing sauce i already had in the fridge and store brand ranch and blue cheese dressings. my family loved it. it could even be better with higher quality dressings i'm sure. i used regular cream cheese. it's great with fritos scoops!

Made it for New Years and everyone loved it! I skipped the celery and made it extra spicy. I also used canned chicken (my first time), I shredded it and I have to say it was easier and tasted much better then when I actually boiled the chicken.
