    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 large bone-in chicken breast halves (Could use left over chicken or rotisserie chicken, as well)
    • salt
    • pepper
    • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
    • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
    • 3 ounces hot sauce (Texas Pete seems to give the best flavor, but this is up to you)
    • 2 stalks celery, chopped (I run mine through the food processor)


    1. 1
      Salt and pepper your chicken breasts. Boil with 2 tablespoons garlic for 25-30 minutes. Drain and allow to cool. Once cool, pull chicken off the bones and into bite-size pieces.
    2. 2
      Mix softened cream cheese, ranch dressing, and hot sauce with hand mixer -- this breaks the cream cheese up the best, if you mix without a mixer it will be chunky.
    3. 3
      Fold chicken and celery into cream cheese mixture and enjoy!

      With garlic in the recipe, I opted to use lemon pepper for seasoning rather than the usual S&P, & I also was very stingy with the hot sauce (personal preference only)! Still what I made was a very tasty salad & half of which was shared, along with another salad I'd made, with a neighbor couple! Thanks for posting this great recipe!

      Oh, boy, is this addicting! Like *Tink*'s daughter, had to stop myself from eating it with a spoon. This will be what I take to my next hospice meeting. I didn't have Texas Pete hot sauce, so subbed with what I had on hand. Adding the full 3 oz of hot sauce makes this dish not for the faint of heart! Thnx, so much, for sharing your recipe, ShrinkingViolet. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!

      OMG! I knew that DH & DS (17) would love this, but I definitely didn't expect my toddler to! She's eating this stuff with a spoon! I served it up on some Roasted Garlic flavored Triscuit crackers & it's so addicting! Unfortunately, DD probably only can eat it because I didn't have the full 3 oz of hot sauce to put in. Somehow I only had about an ounce. So I subbed by putting in about 15 drops of Tabasco, which isn't the same exact flavor, but enough heat to offset the ranch & cream cheese & let us know that this is a recipe worth making again when we have a new bottle of hot sauce. I didn't process the celery, just a very small dice. This recipe is going to be a huge hit at our next get-together. Thanks for sharing, ShrinkingViolet! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :D
