If you want to take this recipe to an actual tailgate you can cook it beforehand and then transfer it to a disposable heavy foil pan. When you get to the tailgate, put the pan on the grill and heat it until its hot and bubbly! Also, for a shortcut you can sub canned chicken which makes it easier to make. I work with Swanson Chicken so we use two cans of their white meat chicken. Another tip: if you're a big fan of bleu cheese with your wings, you can use bleu cheese dressing in place of the ranch and bleu cheese crumbles in place of the shredded cheddar!
