This is the recipe to make when you don't want to miss the big game because you're stuck in the kitchen. I also like that you can adjust all of the ingredients to your personal taste. Touchdown! =^..^=

Method:

Ingredients

2 can(s)
of cooked chicken (tuna-sized cans), drained, or 2 shredded cooked chicken breasts
2
blocks of cream cheese
1-2
stalks of celery, minced fine
1
small bottle of ranch or bleu cheese dressing
2 c
shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4+ c
hot sauce, to taste
some
of your favorite dippers, like crackers, celery sticks, other veggies, tortilla chips, or bread cubes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
NOTE: If you're cooking fresh chicken, do this first. (I boil chicken breasts in a covered saucepan for about 45 minutes, then remove from water & cool before shredding.)
2
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and mist a 2 qt. baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
3
In a skillet, melt the blocks of cream cheese, then stir in the celery. Mix well.
4
Add the small bottle of dressing and some of the mozzarella cheese.
5
Then add the chicken. Next, stir in some hot sauce (to taste). Mix well
6
Pour the skillet contents into the prepared baking dish. Cover ingredients with mozzarella cheese.
7
**(Everything up to this point can be done ahead of time, but consider using a metal pan if it's going from the refrigerator to the oven, unless you have bakeware that can take the temperature extremes.)
8
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or microwave for 4 minutes or so (check carefully), until the dip is bubbly and the cheese is melted. Serve with your favorite dippers & extra hot sauce. (Sorry there is no photo. It smelled so good coming out of the oven that it was carried away & eaten before I remember I needed to take one!)
