Step 1

Drain canned chicken in a colander and rinse well under cold water. Blot dry on paper towels and break up any large chunks. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl and using a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, salad dressing, garlic salt, and black pepper until smooth and creamy. Beat in the hot sauce. Beat in the shredded cheese for just a few seconds to reduce the size of the shreds but leaving it a bit chunky.

Using a spatula, gently fold in the chicken. To serve cold, refrigerate until serving time. To serve hot, pour mixture into a 1-qt baking dish and heat for 15 to 20 minutes in a preheated 350°F. oven. Makes about 2 cups.

Serve with assorted crackers, French bread baguette slices, pita chips, or celery sticks. (I like celery sticks or Monet brand Stone-Ground Wheat Crackers from the dollar store!)
