  1. For the chicken, simply cook it in the pan with some salt and pepper until done. Shred chicken and either use right away or store in the fridge.

  2. In a medium cooking pan, over medium heat, heat up wing sauce.

  3. Add shredded chicken and mix it with sauce, cook for a few minutes. Take off heat.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375. Use an oven-safe tray to prepare nachos.
  5. Start layering the nachos:

    -spread 1/2 the chips

    -spread 1/2 the blue cheese and 1/2 the chicken over chips

    -spread 1/2 the lettuce

    -spread 1/2 the tomatoes

    -spread 1/2 the celery

    - drizzle 1/2 the buffalo ranch dressing

  6. Repeat the next layer, leaving some fresh veggies and buffalo ranch dressing for spreading after nachos have been baked.
  7. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top and bake for 10-13 minutes.
  8. Spread remaining fresh veggies over the top and drizzle some buffalo ranch dressing over the top.
  9. If you do not want to add lettuce in the middle to get warm, simply skip it and just add it to the top after the nachos have been baked.
