Chicken Wing Dip

(without the bones and mess)

This recipe feeds a crowd and is easy to put together. Another bonus: you can customize the recipe to your own taste, using mild hot sauce or something with more fire to it. It also can be made using whatever type of chicken you have on hand — including canned chicken, frozen chicken chunks or leftover chicken breast.

• 2 (8-ounce) tubs cream cheese, softened

• 3/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (or similar)

• 1 cup ranch dressing

• 2 cups diced chicken

• 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Stir in hot sauce. Add ranch dressing, chicken and cheddar cheese. Mix well. Pour dip into a 9-by-13-inch pan. Bake 30 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or celery.
