    "Amazing recipe! This is my "go to" when asked to bring an appetizer!"

    "We thought this was delicious! I wish I had thought to get some french baguette slices because that would have tasted so good. We used pita chips. Few minor tweaks: I used shredded rotisserie chicken, and for the cheese I did 3/4 mozzarella, 1/4 cheddar. This was so simple and so easy. I'll make this again!"

    "Nothing irks me more than people rating a recipe with 1 star and then saying they haven't even made it yet. I haven't made this but giving it 5 stars, #1 based on the great reviews, #2 to make up for the person who gave it 1 star and hadn't made it. I am making it this weekend for the Superbowl and I'm sure it will be fantastic!"

    "Very tasty! This recipe is pretty similar to another version that I have made several times, except this one is layered instead of mixed all together. The only thing I did differently was to season the chicken mixture well with salt and pepper, onion and garlic powders, and parsley. I did also mix the hot sauce with the shredded chicken layer. Next time I will cover with aluminum foil and not let the cheese get too browned, so that it doesn't form a harder layer on top for the chips to cut through. Otherwise great recipe! Thank you!"

    "This is delicious. The only thing I do differently is I top with cooked bacon that I chop. Delicious! A crowd favourite. As a Volunteer Field Editor for TOH, I enjoy testing various recipes!"

    "I make this all the time and it's so popular! Even my non-cream cheese loving husband enjoys it. Agree that canned chicken makes it so easy, and blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing from a bottle is important. The buffalo sauce also matters, so get a good brand!"

    "I made the recipe according to directions with shredded rotisserie chicken from Costco, Texas Pete Buffalo wing sauce and Hidden Valley Ranch prepared dressing because it is what I had on hand. It came out okay. The flavor was good, but not great. I think if I were to make it again would use blue cheese dressing, and possibly even add some additional crumbled blue cheese, and a dash of Siracha maybe? I agree on the canned Kirkland chicken, very good and offers so many possibilities especially when trying to "whip" something up :)"

    "I'm shocked at how many people here pooh-pooh the canned chicken. They clearly have never bought and eaten Costco Kirkland canned chicken breast. It's delicious, flavorful and I use it for chicken salad, white chicken chili, and appetizers like this. It's waaaaay more flavorful and meaty than a chicken breast! If you've never tried this inexpensive, nutritional and delicious canned chicken, try it. It's nothing like grocery store canned chicken and it's in lovely 7 ounce cans!"

    "Amazing dip! Great appetizer for a party. I used Buffalo style chunk chicken undrained 2 cans. Will have to double recipe next time. Served with tortilla chips."
