Baked Warm Crack Chicken Dip

It’s my favorite day of the week! Football Friday! I’m so excited for all the college and NFL games this weekend. Watching football requires lots of yummy food. This Warm Crack Chicken Dip is definitely going to be on our menu. Cheesy chicken dip loaded with cheddar, bacon, and ranch – YUM! I can make a meal out of just this yummy dip. You will definitely score a touchdown if you show up with this dip to your football party!

How to Make Warm Crack Chicken Dip

This Warm Crack Chicken Dip is super easy to make. My number one tip is to use rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in the recipe. Rotisserie chicken is my secret weapon in my kitchen. I always have bags of pulled rotisserie chicken in the freezer for quick recipes like this one.

To make the dip, combine cream cheese, sour cream, chicken, ranch dressing mix, bacon, and cheddar cheese. SUPER easy! Pop it in the oven and you are minutes away from some seriously delicious dip.

If you are looking to cut back on the calories in this dip, feel free to use low-fat cream cheese, low-fat sour cream, and turkey bacon. I haven’t tried this dip with plain Greek yogurt, but I am sure it would still taste great!

Can Crack Chicken Dip Be Made in Advance?

Absolutely! I almost always whip this dip up the night before our parties and keep it in the refrigerator until we are ready to start watching football. If you do make this in advance and refrigerate the dip, you will probably need to add about 5 minutes to the cooking time since the dip will be cold.

What to Serve with Warm Crack Chicken Dip

We love to eat this Warm Crack Chicken Dip with Fritos or Tostitos Scoops. If you are looking to keep this dip low-carb/keto-friendly, look for low-carb chips or try some carrot or celery sticks. Can you believe this dip is low-carb, Keto-friendly, and gluten-free?!?!?! Woohoo! Most of all this dip is AH-MAZ-ING!

This Warm Crack Chicken Dip is a party favorite! I never have any leftovers. It is great for football parties, potlucks, holiday parties, or just a Friday night. We can’t get enough of this yummy dip! It goes great with sausage ballspigs in a blanketpimento cheese dip.

  1. Can this be put in a Sour Dough Bread dough , and the inside carved out and used for the chicken dip ? and if so what temp and how long would it cook ?

    1. I’m sure it could – I don’t know the cooking times, as I have not baked this in a bread bowl. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  2. Same question as another poster – can this be frozen and reheated. I’m always looking for things that all my grandkids will eat that I can make ahead, freeze, and reheat at a campsite. I’m 99,999% sure that all of them would eat this.

  3. O.M.G. You guys. This is so freaking good. I can’t stop eating it. It’s amazing. There aren’t even words for how good it is! I’m using townhouse flip sides crackers that are garlic herb flavor for scooping but I’m sure any flavor will do. I’m also going to be using frito scoops as well so we’ll see which is better! I can’t express how good these are! Omg! 10/10!

    1. Either way is fine. I usually shred it, but small bite-sized pieces are just fine. You just want it small enough to fit on the chips.

    1. Would the Greek yogurt replace both the cream cheese and sour cream? Or just one of the ingredients? Can Buffalo mix brushes instead of ranch?
