BBQ Chicken Dip, made with cream cheese, is an easy appetizer recipe. Pair it with tortilla chips for a delicious snack your friends and family will love!

BBQ Chicken Dip is one of my family's favorite snacks for holidays, movie night, Game Day, and more. It makes a great party appetizer too and disappears rather quickly.

There's just something about cream cheese, BBQ sauce, and Ranch dressing mixed together. The ingredients come together to form a layered dip that's absolutely delicious and pairs well with crackers, tortilla chips, even raw veggies.

While you can make this in a pie plate, cutting the ingredients by half (and we've done this plenty of times), you can also make it, as is, in a 13×9 inch pan… I prefer to layer the ingredients, as listed, in about a 10-inch iron skillet.

It's a little thicker this way, which is how I prefer this dip to be, with a good, solid layer of cream cheese on the bottom.

If your chicken is already cooked, you can mix this dip up in about 10 minutes. Pop it in the oven for about 20 minutes, and you're all set.

  1. This sounds like a great way to prepare this dip! I mean I love the Buffalo style version, BUT I love bbq sauce as well. I will definitely have to add this to the “try-this-soon” list!
    Thanks for the mention!

    • It’s really yummy and a little addicting, I have to admit. We don’t make it too often because it’s gone in a flash when we do.:) Thanks so much, Angie!

  2. I made this for a book club gathering and the ladies loved it! I used the precooked shredded chicken in a can from Costco and it worked wonderfully and made the recipe even easier to prepare. This is something you could put together the night before then just pop in the oven before a gathering. Definitely a keeper for the future :)
