Buffalo Chicken Dip

The most addicting dip that I've ever tasted... after many recipes and tweaks, this is the best!

Buffalo Blue Cheese Chicken Dip

And yes, I know that my camera phone does not do it justice! Onto the recipe:

-A deep baking dish that is oven safe
-2 cooked pieces of chicken (More or less depending on how much you like chicken).  Many say boneless skinless chicken breasts are the best.  However, I like to cook two chicken drumsticks with the skin on.  I peel the skin off once the chicken has finished cooking.  This way, the chicken will stay juicy from being on the bone, and have nice flavor from the skin.
-12 oz cream cheese (this is a base, once again you can use more or less, but this is what worked for me).
-1/4 cup blue cheese salad dressing (more or less depending on how much you like blue cheese, but this is a good amount to start out with... Remember, you can put more blue cheese in, but it is much harder to take it out!)
-1/4 cup ranch salad dressing (depending on how much you like ranch dressing, you can also substitute this for the blue cheese dressing, and vice versa).
-1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles (cheddar cheese works too.. and I put in much more than 1/4 cup because I love blue cheese)
-Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce, as much as you want! Just pour and taste like a true chef ;P
-Fritos and celery for dipping.

-Grated cheddar cheese and panko bread crumbs to make a nice and crispy topping for the dip.

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
-Soften the cream cheese
-Shred the chicken
-mix everything together in a deep, oven safe baking dish
-Sprinkle optional cheddar cheese and bread crumbs over the mixture
-Taste and make any adjustments, I added more hot sauce and blue cheese!
-Bake for 20-30 minutes (every oven is different)!
