Notes

[NOTE] I suggest using rotisserie chicken or fresh cooked chicken breast. I tried using canned chicken in one of my tests and it lacked a lot of flavor. Also, using blue cheese dressing instead of a good quality ranch dressing makes the dip taste overly sour and sharp. It's best to save the blue cheese as garnish over the top.
