Seasoned chopped cooked chicken, cream cheese, mayo, blue cheese, celery and 1 cup of hot sauce, is covered with Parmesan and panko crumbs, and baked.

  • Servings: 16

Ingredients:

1¼ lbs Boneless & Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 cup Chicken Broth
2 , 8 Oz. Packages Cream Cheese, room temperature
1 cup Louisana-style Hot Sauce
2 Large Stalks Celery, diced (approximately ⅔ cup
1 cup Mayonnaise
½ cup Blue Cheese Crumbles
¼ cup Butter, melted
1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
½ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Assorted Chips & Crackers, and additional celery.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium skillet, place chicken breasts, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and chicken broth. Poach chicken until cooked through and no pink remains, approximately 20 minutes. Remove from liquid and allow to cool, then shred or dice chicken.

Combine chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce, and celery. Mix together mayonnaise and blue cheese crumbles; add to chicken mixture and stir to combine well. Spread mixture in a 2-quart baking dish. Combine melted butter, panko bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle crumbs over the chicken mixture. Bake in pre-heated oven until mixture is hot, bubbly and golden brown, approximately 20 minutes.

Serve with assorted chips, crackers, and celery sticks for dipping.

Helpful Tips:

For an extra spice "kick," use an additional 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, stirring it into the crumb mixture.
