Here in the CHOW Test Kitchen, we know deep-frying Buffalo wings can be a pain, and we’ve already simplified the process with recipes for grilling them, broiling them, and even turning them into jalapeño poppers. Now we’ve combined all of the flavors into an easy dip. Just stir together cooked chicken, blue cheese, hot sauce, cream cheese, and celery seeds and bake until the mixture’s hot and bubbly; then dig in with some carrot sticks, celery sticks, saltine crackers, or potato chips.
What to buy: One rotisserie or roasted chicken will yield roughly the right amount of meat for this recipe.
Special equipment: You’ll need a 9-inch pie plate to make this dip.
