How to Make BBQ Chicken Dip

This warm dip is very simple to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, creamy ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, and sharp cheddar cheese. Spread the chicken mixture into a baking dish or small casserole dish. Top the dip with more shredded cheese and chopped green onions. Pop the dip in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and the dip is bubbly.

Comments

  1. Make sure the BBQ sauce isn't sweet! Then you'll have sweet cheese dip-blech. If you do make that mistake, then mustard will cut down the sweetness.

  2. So I made this using Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. It was a bit too sweet tasting to me when I checked the mix before baking so I added some Texas Pete to my mix as well. That made it better. I think in the long run I might like it better with half BBQ sauce and half Hot Wing Sauce next time.

  3. This dip is amazing! My teen son said it was his new favorite. We like it hot so I used STUBBS spicy bbq and it turned out great. I even made a diary free version and it was awesome too! Thanks!!

  4. Omg! Just got done making this for a BBQ I'm going to tomorrow. I could've seriously sat here and eat it all leaving none for tomorrow! I was a little unsure how this would turn out because I absolutely LOVE the buffalo chicken dip but this is so delicious. Will definitely make again!

    PS – I cooked it on the stove top first, then threw it in a casserole dish and put the cheese on top. Will warm it up tomorrow to melt the cheese!

  5. Teresa – I found the tablecloths at the University Bookstore on campus (Haley Center). They also sell the fabric at the fabric stores in Auburn/Opelika – at least they did a few years back.

    To transport the dip, I have a Pyrex carry case that has a bag of gel (I guess) that you heat up in the microwave. It slides in a pouch in the cover and keeps everything warm. I bet you could find something similar in the camping section at Wal-Mart or Academy.

  6. Yummy idea! Do you transport it after cooking, and if so do you have tips on keeping it hot? Also, I would love to know where you found your game day tablecloths, both this one and the orange and blue plaid.
