Layer up this beautiful salad with classic buffalo chicken flavors for your next party! Use our Make-Ahead Shredded Chicken Breast pulled from your freezer. Just thaw six cups of the chicken for this salad.
cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken
cup ranch dressing
cup hot sauce
cup sliced celery
cups crumbled blue cheese (8 oz)
cups shredded romaine lettuce
cups grated peeled carrots
In large bowl, toss chicken, dressing and hot sauce.
In 6-quart trifle bowl or glass bowl, layer as follows: Gently transfer chicken mixture to the bowl, being careful to keep sides of bowl clean. Top with sliced celery, then half the blue cheese, focusing efforts around outside of bowl. Top with romaine, then carrots, then remaining blue cheese.
If you like it spicy, add an extra 1/4 cup of hot sauce to the chicken. It won’t change the consistency dramatically.
If you'd like to reduce the size of the recipe for a smaller trifle dish or bowl, go for it. Just halve all ingredients except celery (to be sure you have enough to go around the outside of the bowl).
Crumble your own blue cheese from a large wedge. You can make bigger chunks that look prettier in the trifle dish than the precrumbled kind do. This also allows you to use nicer varieties of blue cheese, if desired.
