Buffalo Chicken Dip

This one isn’t from a cookbook — it’s from Husband’s list of favorites!  We brought a batch to a casual cookout last weekend and got rave reviews.  I took most of the credit, naturally.

Husband prefers it cold, while I like to top it with shredded cheese and bake until warm and bubbly.  Because cheese.

I finally used the Pinterest trick for shredding chicken, and let me tell you, I couldn’t have been more impressed.  The paddle attachment on my KitchenAid mixer turned those three giant chicken breasts into perfect shreds in less than a minute.  Just tear the breasts into large chunks and mix on low speed.
