"This tastes just like hot chicken wings, but without the mess. It is very addicting, and is perfect for football and tailgating season. Serve with tortilla chips. I take this whenever I have to bring a dish and am always asked for the recipe." — ASCBRADY

I love this dip and make it frequently. There are a few things I do differently: I layer the cream cheese then the bleu cheese (I use one jar of bleu cheese - Marie's or Marzetti's) next the chicken/ hot sauce (mixed together) and just a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese on top. P.S. I grew up in(and still live in) Buffalo, NY - and we DO NOT eat our chicken wings with ranch dressing - BLEU CHEESE and celery or carrot sticks ONLY!!!!
Entirely too twangy. I would cut back on the ranch. It was just too much when combined with the cream cheese.
I have made a variation of this recipe for over a year now and have never been disappointed. I suggest using more chicken and more hot sauce with this recipe. Also, if you use the chedder cheese, don't use the pre-shredded bags from the grocery store. The cheese in those bags is coated with flour and it seems to make the dip oiler.
I make a similar version of this often for tailgating and it's always a hit. I'm constantly giving out the recipe. I omit cheddar cheese, use only 1 package of cream cheese (for a meatier dip) and do not heat or bake (mix at room temp and and serve chilled). I also shred the chicken instead of cubing it and serve with celery sticks and chips for a little variety.
Very good! I used a packet of dry Ranch dressing mix, instead of the bottled stuff. Turned out great! I thought using more liquid would make it runny, and the dry power really held this dip together great!
*laughs* I'm not even waiting until everyone shows up to see their reactions to this to review it... Utterly, amazingly, unbelievably good!!! What a perfect idea for football parties! JustLearning86 - Great tip for Frank's Buffalo Wing sauce! I used a full 1.5 lb package of chicken breast, chopped finely. Just over a cup of Frank's Buffalo Wing sauce, Wishbone's Chunky Blue Cheese dressing, and Neufchatel Cream Cheese - didn't use any other cheese. I do believe this will be alternated with my Chili Cheese dip (My staple)... Wow! TRY THIS!!! (Kept it in the crock to keep it warm, and served with Scoops and Celery stix)
Very addictive. Always get asked for the recipe. I use Bleu Cheese (personal preference) and reduced fat cream cheese and fresh cooked chicken (makes a world of difference on the taste. I have used fresh and canned both) Have made it 2 different times. I have one suggestion though, after baking, transfer it to a crock pot to keep warm; I learned this lesson after I made the first time and it cooled off so quick. I had to keep reheating in microwave and it doesnt taste good cold!
Great with celery, fritos scoops, chicken in a biscuit crackers or tortilla chips.
The Best!! Never any leftovers. As a matter of fact, we've had some major fights over people shoveling it on their chips. I'm from Buffalo so we use one jar of Maries Blue Cheese salad dresing instead of the Ranch. Bake for reccomended time but add the cheese topping the last five minutes just to melt it a little or it gets tough and chewy - never use the packaged shredded stuff.Please only use Frank's Hot Sauce if you can get it.
