10 Point Pitch

Just got home from my first ever - 10 Point Pitch! We joined a new card club. All members are much younger than us and all very nice. Also, most had played PITCH - I was pretty clueless but everyone was very nice and due to beginner's luck - I won! I look forward to next month.

We all took appetizers. The food was way yummy and our host/hostess had a very scrumptious dessert. I took Buffalo Chicken Dip and it seemed to be a hit. I especially love this hearty appetizer-really can't go wrong with chicken, wing sauce, cream cheese, etc.

Buffalo Chicken Appetizer

3 – 4 chicken breasts

1 - 8 oz. bottle Buffalo Wing sauce ( didn’t use all)

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 to 1 cup of crumbled blue cheese

1 cup of ranch dressing

2 cups of grated cheddar cheese

Boil chicken just til done. Cool and shred chicken using 2 forks or your fingers. Pour wing sauce over shredded chicken, cover and marinate overnight. Spread cream cheese in a lightly greased 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Layer marinated chicken next, and then the crumbled blue cheese. Mix ranch dressing with grated cheddar and layer on top. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or till bubbly. Serve warm with sturdy tortilla chips!! Enjoy!!

*Tonight I mixed the blue cheese, half of the cheddar cheese and about 3/4 of the ranch and layered this one. Then topped it with the rest of the ranch and sparsley scattered cheddar cheese. If you do the cheddar cheese in one layer on top, it tends to get too hard.

I love buffalo chicken dip! I could literally eat an entire bowl of it myself. I've never heard of pitch! It sounds like a fun game. Hope you're having a great weekend!
