I’ve been making this recipe for years, long before most people had ever heard about it (it was my very own unique discovery for a while). I remember bringing it to a work potluck and it was a huge hit. Everyone wanted the recipe, which I always feel is the best compliment!
I figured most people had tried it by now, but when I brought it to a party last weekend, it was still the most flocked to and talked about appetizer at the get together. This is a recipe I LOVE to make for our football game day festivities!
- 2 medium chicken breasts
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup Ranch dressing
- 3/4 cup pepper sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot®)
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 bunch celery, cleaned and cut into 4 inch pieces
- 1 bunch carrots, cleaned, peeled, and cut into 4 inch pieces
- 1 (8 ounce) box chicken-flavored crackers or tortilla chips
- Boil chicken breasts until cooked through. Shred into small pieces using two forks to tear apart.
- Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm.
- Mix in cheese over the top and cook until warm and bubbly. Serve with celery sticks, carrots and crackers.
