You can use canned white meat chicken, shredded rotisserie chicken, or any kind of leftover chicken you might have.
Chicken, hot sauce, dressing, and celery can be prepped ahead of time for easy baking. I love this method because it guarantees a quick appetizer when pinched for time.
Any kind of cheddar blend works, but the bets cheese pull with come from freshly grated cheese. Shredded bagged cheeses have non binding agents that make them less creamy.
