Looking for a great appetizer for your next gathering? This is easy and delicious.
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 3-4 Hours
Yields: 10-15 Servings
Prepare your smoker by setting the temperature to 250 degrees. Season your whole chicken with your favorite poultry rub. Put it on the smoker until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Pull your chicken off, and let it rest for 10 minutes. While your chicken is resting, combine 1 package of softened cream cheese, a half cup of your favorite buffalo sauce (use 3/4 cup if you want to make it extra spicy), and a half cup of ranch together.
Shred your chicken, and add two cups to the above ingredients. Place in a large cast iron and put back on the smoker for 15 minutes. Drizzle ranch and buffalo sauce on top once finished; add freshly chopped green onion for garnish.
Serve with tortilla chips, pita bread, crackers or your favorite veggies.
**This can also be done in an oven at 350 degrees. If you do not have a lot of time, grab a rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store.
4-5 pound whole young chicken
3T of poultry seasoning
1 block softened cream cheese
1/2 to 3/4 cup buffalo sauce
1/2 cup ranch
1/2 green onion (garnish)
Smoke chicken until an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Let it rest for 10 minutes before shredding. Combine all ingredients in a large cast iron pan, and place back in the smoker or oven for 15 minutes. Drizzle with ranch and buffalo sauce. Chop your green onion and garnish. Serve at your next gathering for an easy appetizer your guests will love.
