I got this Buffalo chicken dip recipe from a respiratory therapist at the hospital where I work. He brought it to a party and everyone asked for the recipe. I appreciate all the reviews that have been written about this recipe since I posted it so long ago. I see more and more that people are making it with freshly cooked chicken - great idea. I also like the idea of using rotisserie chicken. The original recipe used canned chicken for convenience, but I agree with all of you that the fresher meat tastes better. Barb P.S. Thank you to everyone who has reviewed this recipe. I love it, too, and it makes me feel so good that so many of you have enjoyed it. Thanks again.

This is a great recipe, but I modified it to add a bit more "crunch". I bought a whole chicken and shredded it, than simmered it over low heat with a bottle of Franks Hot Wing Sauce. I melted 16oz of cream cheese and 1cup of bleu cheese dressing (Bobs - it's the best!) in a saucepan over low heat. I layer the chicken&sauce mixture on the bottom of the dish, top that with the melted cream cheese/bleu cheese dressing mixture and then top that with diced celery! I top that with a layer of shredded colby jack cheese and and a few bleu cheese crumbles. Bake at 350 until bubbley. Serve with celery sticks, chips, bread, whatever! There are NEVER any leftovers! Enjoy
My friend gave me this recipe and it is almost identical. First, everyone agrees that it has better texture and flavor if you boil your chicken breasts, then SHRED the chicken. You can make this in a crock pot on high for 2 hrs and it's ready for any party! We use Frank's Red Hot Sauce as it seems to have the best flavor and we use 1-11/2 cups of it. We use i package of shredded cheddar cheese (2 cups) and we serve with a variety of dipping items- Fritos Scoops, Tortilla Chips, Toasted Baguette slices, celery sticks and carrot sticks. Seriously- every Party I have made this for it is gone first and recipe requests are always made!
Big hit at a holiday party! Instead of baking we put all ingredients in the crock pot to keep warm.
