For about an hour, they were busy cutting, stirring, and setting the table. I normally eat dinner around 8:00 but last night, I didn't care that we didn't eat until 10:45 (that's how long it took them to pull everything together). It was awesome to see them so excited to serve us dinner! They even used the formal dining room table instead of our normal four seater breakfast table. I wanted to share the recipe because it was easy, flavorful, and kid-friendly.
Here are the ingredients:
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
- 1/2 cup hot sauce (recommended: Frank's)
- 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
- Crackers, bread, celery or carrot sticks, for serving
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a medium saucepan over moderate heat, melt the cream cheese until smooth, about 3 minutes. (We used the "soften" feature on our microwave to speed up the process)
Add the celery, hot sauce and chicken (Purchase a chicken from your local grocery store deli. Remove the skin and discard. Take the chicken off the bone and either shred or roughly chop).
Transfer the mixture to a 9-inch pie plate and sprinkle the crumbled blue cheese on top (we used a combination of mozzarella and cheddar instead of blue cheese). Bake until hot and bubbly, about 25 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, bread, celery or carrot sticks.
|Buffalo Chicken Dip|
All the great flavors of Buffalo chicken wings without all the fat of the chicken skin and oil. Wanna take it up a notch and remove some of the heat? Add 1/2 cup ranch dressing to the mixture before baking. (Posted by Renee)
