It's spicy but not “too” spicy for most sensitive palates. See Cook’s Note and make it extra “hot & spicy” if desired.

Ingredients

  • 1 -12 oz can Chicken breast chunks, drained or leftover cooked chicken breasts – chopped (about 1-1/2 medium breasts)
  • 1/2 Cup Hot sauce (we used Louisiana Hot Sauce)
  • 4 Tablespoons Salted butter
  • 1 -8 oz block Cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/2 Cup Sour cream
  • 1/4 Cup Ranch dressing (Hidden Valley, bottled or see recipe below)
  • 2 Stalks Celery (chopped)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella cheese or chopped American Cheese or Monterrey Jack

Optional

  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped parsely

Directions

Cook’s Note: If you really want it “hot” the hot sauce may be increased to ¾ cup and/or add a chopped jalapeno or two.



Place the chopped chicken, butter and hot sauce in saucepan on stovetop or place in microwave safe bowl. Stir, bring the chicken mixture to a boil, melting the butter and coating the chicken well with the hot sauce. Turn heat off, cover and let sit for a few minutes to allow the chicken to absorb the flavor. If using microwave, heat for 2 minutes, stir and let stand.

In a medium size bowl, combine the cream cheese, celery, sour cream and Ranch
dressing. Mix well and lightly stir in the hot sauce chicken mixture. Top with cheese and sprinkle the parsley over if using. Makes over 4 cups, just 2 net carbs per ¼ cup serving. Dip may be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.



Cook’s Note: This dip is also wonderful served hot. Just heat in microwave or oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.
