I love this recipe. My only deviation is to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs in place of canned chicken. I marinate 4-5 thighs in franks original for about an hour and bake until done.

I only use 1 can of chicken and I grind it up really fine in the food processor and put the 1/2 of cup of the redhot sauce in with it and let it soak it up while I am preparing the rest. This stops the taste of the chicken from being overwhelming. I use 1 cup of shredded mozzarella instead of a 1/2 cup along with the ranch and the cream cheese and it it amazing.

Love this dip! I'm asked to make it for every party we go to. It's so easy to make that even my culinarily challenged husband can make it. I've actually converted this dip into a pasta sauce since we like it so much. I just add milk til it's a little runnier than the dip and of course more hot sauce since the milk tones down the spiciness. My 3 year old daughter gets the toned down version though and she loves it.

I had this yesterday when a co-worker brought it in for our holiday party. I whipped up a tiny batch in the microwave using 1/4 cup fat free half & half plus 2 tblsp extra hot frank's & about 4 ounces neufchatel. Heat 90 seconds on 50% power in a pyrex measuring cup. Now stir until smooth about 20 seconds. If too thick, add more Frank's. Stir in about an ounce of Kraft shredded fat free mozzarella. Stir. Voila. Buffalo Alfredo sauce. Will try again with a little garlic powder. I'm hooked!

This is just the best! I prefer ranch over bleu cheese, so used that the first time I made it. Just made a double plus batch using 2 1/2 8 oz pkgs of cream cheese, double Frank's, and substituted sour cream, 1 cup, for the dressing, using mozzarella and only one can of chicken (I like less chicken). I love, love, love the result! Frank's rocks, and my office gang is going to love it for our holiday lunch with Stacey's pita chips!

I've made this dip tons of times because every Christmas party, Football party, and random get togethers people beg me to make this recepie, and it's gone in 10to mins! I actually use 1/4 cup fat free Ranch and 1/4 cup fat free Blue Cheese, Weight Watchers shredded mozzerella, 1/3 less fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), and I boil chicken tenderloins and shred them myself. I also use 3/4 cup of Frank's because I love it spicy! No one can ever tell its low fat- even my boyfriend, father, and brother who are all 100% against anything low fat- joke's on them!! I don't layer either, it looks better mixed together. And if there is ever any left over it is amazing on a sub roll for lunch the next day!

I like to make a layered buffalo chicken dip: -Spread cream cheese on bottom of casserole dish. -Toss chopped cooked chicken in Franks Redhot sauce. Spread chicken over cream cheese. -Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese and blue cheese crumbles over chicken. -Bake in 350 degree oven until warm. -Garnish with shredded celery and serve with tortilla chips and crackers. The result is classic deliciousness :)

Just made this dip. Although the flavor was excellent, it called for waaay to much hot sauce. Not that it was too hot, but it was much too tart when considering you've got blue cheese in there too. Next time I make it, I will cut back to 1/2 the amount of both hot sauce and blue cheese and also a little less ranch dressing to keep it from being so runny.

Very good dip, I followed the bleu cheese route. However, the first time I made this it was a bit too runny for my taste. The second time I made it I cut back on the dressing by about 1/8 of a cup and added a third can of chicken... I thought the consistency was much better this way. Either way it tastes awesome! Next time I'm going to try Frank's Xtra Hot in place of the regular Red Hot
