Serve chicken dip warm with dippers of your choice such as celery, tortilla chips, or crackers.
*3 Tablespoons if using a large container of dried ranch seasoning.**Using store-bought rotisserie chicken makes this super fast and easy.
We like to use a rotisserie chicken for this as it is quicker, but you can bake or boil and shred chicken breasts.
Use whatever cheese that you like, we like sharp cheddar.
This can be frozen, see my tips above.
This recipe can easily be doubled to fit in a larger pan to serve more people.
