Buffalo Chicken Dip
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch salad dressing
1/2 cup Hot Sauce or Buffalo Wing Sauce
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
DIRECTIONS: 2 different ways
HEAT oven to 350°F. Place cream cheese into deep dish 9-inch pie plate. Microwave 1 min. to soften. WHISK in salad dressing, Frank's RedHot Sauce and cheese until smooth. Stir in chicken. BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Garnish as desired. Serve with crackers or vegetables.
2nd Way (my favorite way)
Mix hot sauce with chicken while your cooking it. Layer the chicken mixture into a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Melt cream cheese in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Reduce heat & add blue cheese dressing. Stir together quickly so it doesn't scorch! Pour cream cheese mixture over chicken. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly, then add your mozzarella cheese & blue cheese. Yes, I said both. From time to time I'll use both if I have both. Bake 15-20 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with celery! Crackers or chips will work too...
I think this dip is best served warm either way you decide to prepare it It just isn't as good cold...
