"This is a great dish. I use Frank's wing sauce and

a rotisserie chicken. Very easy. I have to make it for all gatherings. It is used as a dip, but also on baked potatoes, sliders and whatever is around."

"I've made this and it is GREAT. I've also changed up a little by adding ranch dressing, shredded colby jack cheese and everyone loves it. I've also put it in a crockpot or heated through with a microwave if I'm in a big hurry. What every you do with it you can't go wrong experiment that is the fun of cooking."

"Good stuff! I've made it the way it says and I've changed it up a bit. We had some surprise guests the other day when the game was on and I wanted a quick snack food to set out, so I substituted 2 cans (drained) of chicken breast. I just drained it, shredded it with a fork and stirred it in. It was really good and no one could tell it was canned chicken."

"I changed this up a little bit to include some Ranch dressing. I also season the chicken with Cajun or Creole seasoning while I cook it before putting it in the mixture. Can be served with chips, carrots, and celery too!!"

"This was a big hit at my last party. I used Red Hot Ceyenne Pepper. I doubled the recipe and only used a little over a 1/4 cup of hot sauce. It was so good and there wasn't a whole lot left over. Big hit."

"What this version of this recipe is missing is the cheese! My version adds 1 cup of shredded cheese--usually mozarella, but I use mozarella AND a mexican blend (cheddar and more). You could use mozarella and cheddar if you wanted, but 1 cup total. AND, try adding some ranch dressing--in the same amount as the hot sauce... My recipe uses 1/2 cup hot sauce and 1/2 cup ranch dressing...

No matter how you make it, the combination of flavors in this dish makes it a winner every time for potlucks, finger foods, and snacks! Plus, it reheats well, so great for lunch another day!"

"Its a great recipe! And its always a crowd pleaser. I have been making this for a long time! I make it as a layered dip...cream cheese onthe bottom, then the shredded chicken (mixed with Frank's red hot), a thin layer of sour cream, top it with shredded cheese and then bake it! Its great withTostitos scoops too!"

"I did not have any chicken but plenty of turkey from Christmas. So I shredded that and used Kens Wing sauce/marinade instead of the Louisiana hot sauce. The Louisiana hot sauce had too much of a vinegar taste for us. Anyway, thank you for posting this. I will be making it again."

"This is okay but doesn't have any WOW factor. There are other recipes on this site that are much better. It definitely needs some blue cheese and more hot sauce. It's easy but it's not a great recipe in my opinion. I guess it's fine if you're really watching your calories but lowering the calories really compromised the flavor in my opinion."
