  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove French bread dough from packaging and cut the loaf into 12 equal slices.
  • 2
    Brush the inside of a 10-inch non-stick skillet with about a teaspoon of melted butter. Arrange the slices of bread dough around the outer edge of the skillet, making sure they are evenly spaced around the edge of the pan. Brush dough with about half of the remaining butter.
  • 3
    Mix together the cream cheese, chicken, Buffalo sauce, ranch dip and salt. Reserve 2 tablespoons of each cheese for the top of the dip, then stir in the rest.
  • 4
    Spoon the dip in the center of the skillet, spreading it out to the edge of the dough slices.
  • 5
    Bake for 24 minutes until the bread is deep golden brown and the dip is heated through.
  • 6
    Brush the bread with the remaining butter. Sprinkle on the reserved cheese and add some scallions and blue cheese crumbles, if desired. Return to the oven for 2-3 minutes until the cheese melts. Serve hot.
