optional chopped green onion and crushed red pepper flakes for topping
bell pepper slices
tortilla chips or crackers
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Set out cream cheese to soften or microwave for 30-60 seconds.
Shred and chop chicken breast and dark meat.
Melt butter and whisk into hot sauce to make a homemade buffalo sauce. Feel free to add exta hot sauce, to taste.
In an oven-safe baking dish, combine chicken, cream cheese, buttery hot sauce (aka buffalo sauce) and ranch dressing.
Season with garlic powder and salt and mix well.
Top with freshly grated pepper jack cheese. You can even mix a little cheese into the dip if you'd like. Cabot brand is my favorite for this dip - it melts like a breeze and is super flavorful. Add a hearty drizzle or so of hot sauce on top.
Bake at 350° F for 15-20 minutes.
If a garnish is desired, you can top the dip with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes and/or chopped green onion.
