  • Place the chicken breasts into a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat until chicken is tender enough to be pulled apart with a fork. Drain and cool until cool enough to touch. Shred or chop chicken and place in a 1 to 2 quart casserole.

  • Mix the cream cheese into the chicken until well blended, then stir in the ranch dressing and hot sauce. Top with Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake uncovered for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is browned and the sauce is bubbly.

I call this dip buffalo chicken dip and it is GREAT!!! I usually bake the chicken since boiling it makes a mess of the pan. I marinate the shredded chicken in Franks Red Hot Buffalo sauce. While that's happening mix a bar of cream cheese and a jar of MARIE's blue cheese OR ranch dressing together. Then layer that mixure and the shredded chicken in a cassarole dish with shredded chedda on top. 350 for 20-30 minutes good to go! I am ready for some FOOTBALL. Read More

A good recipe and i will make it again but there was way too much cheese on top and it just sat there in a bug lump. Next time I will mix some of the cheese into the mixture and put only a small amount on top. We ate this with tortilla chips celery and carrots. Read More

My daughter made this for a bridal shower and what a hit. The only difference is that we put all the ingrediants into the crock pot and let simmer. Oh yum yum yum. Keeps it hot and doesn't last long. We even double the recipe. Read More

We make this recipe for all of our Steeler games. We don't use fresh chicken but cooked canned. That makes the recipe faster to prepare. GO BLACK AND GOLD Read More

A friend brought this over for a potluck and it was delicious. I tried making it again the next day with canned chicken instead of poached/shredded and did not like the results as much. Canned chicken makes the texture too goopy and paste-like and we much preferred the chewy bits of chicken in the original recipe. I did like one thing better though and that was mixing most of the cheese in with the rest of the ingredients and only adding a small sprinkle on top. Otherwise it hardens once it's cool into a waxy layer that makes dipping difficult. Read More

We love this dip around my house! I use pulled leftover roasted chicken (actually that recipe is on here too - its called Roast Sticky Chicken Rotisserie Style) and I also use blue cheese dressing instead of ranch and toss in some blue cheese crumbles too. We like to eat it with tortilla chips. It always disappears quick!! Read More

Every time I make this dip people RAVE about it and I end up passing along the recipe to at least three people! I also do 1/2 ranch and 1/2 blue cheese. It gives a nice balance of flavors. The crock pot is a great way to let the flavors blend together but make sure to stir it often to avoid the oils sitting on top. Overall this recipe is super-easy to make... and DELICIOUS! (We have also spread this on grilled pizza dough and made buffalo pizza out of it! YUM!) Read More

Awesome! Made this yesterday and it was great. The only thing I changed was the dressing and used half ranch and half blue cheese and I made it in the crock pot. One thing to note and I should have known better but I had company and was sidetracked.. keep a watch on the heat. We mistakenly cranked this up to high since everyone was so anxious to eat it and within a minute or two it completely separated. Read More
