Hi this is a great recipe with many variations....however, I am always trying to make it less caloric....try using humus, stir in a little hot sauce and add the chicken( I use rotisserie)..you can sprinkle some cheese on top...eat it room temp or hot...easy and very good! I use the garlic flavored humus.

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!
I doubled the directions using boiled chicken breasts. I bake half one day for a nice family snack with tostitos green salsa chips, and refrigerate the other half until the weekend...or the next day. Then i spread it on flour tortillas and make buffalo chicken quesadillas for lunch. My kids "LOVE IT"!!!
I also make this dish, however I find that the bottled ranch or bleu cheese dressing makes the dish a little oily. I solved this by eliminating the dressing and using 8 oz of sour cream and 8 oz of mayo, combined with bleu cheese crumbles, to taste. I use about 3-4 Tablespoons of crumbled danish bleu cheese. It comes out even more delicious than the original. It's one of those dishes that people always devor, and request the recipe!
