Buffalo Ranch Chicken Pull Apart Bread.
Easy to throw together and always a crowd favorite. Perfect for game day and any other occasion in between.
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Slice the bread horizontally and vertically to create 1 inch cubes, being careful not to actually slice all the way through the bread (see above photo). Transfer to a baking sheet. 2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, parsley, and chives. Rub the inside of the bread with the olive oil mix. 3. In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, ranch dressing, and buffalo sauce until combined. Stir in the chicken, half the cheddar cheese, the blue cheese, and a large pinch of black pepper. Stuff the filling inside the bread, filling in all the spaces in between the cuts, it's ok to pull back a bit on the pieces of bread. Drizzle over a few spoonfuls of additional buffalo sauce, then stuff with the remaining cheddar. 4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the filling is warmed throughout. Serve topped with fresh parsley, additional buffalo sauce, and ranch, if desired. Enjoy...immediately!5. To make the ranch. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and shake or stir until creamy.
To Make Ahead: prepare the bread through step 3. Cover, and keep in the fridge for up to 1 day. When ready to bake, remove from the fridge and let come to room temp while you preheat the oven. Bake as directed.
To Make Vegetarian: simply omit the chicken.
