2 (10 ounce) cans
natural chunk chicken, drained
hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®)
2 (8 ounce) packages
Neufchatel cheese, softened
light ranch dressing
shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, divided
celery, cleaned and cut into 4 inch pieces
Could not tell ingredients were reduced fat/calories. I would not use the slow cooker again. Instead I would heat in the oven until cheese is melted on top. The slow cooker seemed to dry it out so it wasn't very creamy like a dip should be, (if it cools you can always heat again in the microwave.) I did leave it in the cooker for the duration of a football game, so that could be why it dried out. I also used frozen checken breast chunks instead of canned chicken. My kids loved it and I made it into a sandwich similar to a tuna melt the next day. It was wonderful!
Tasty.. I actually used this as a filling for a lunch wrap.. used ff cream cheese and topped wit sauteed broccoli slaw.. spicy.. next time I may cut back on the heat a bit. I also grilled my own chicken
Made no changes to this recipe. It didn't last long! Nobody knew that the ingredients were fat free. Will use this as the "go-to" dip for parties. Any talk about easy!
