Barbecue Chicken Dip

BBQ Chicken Dip

Are you looking for a quick and oh so delicious appetizer to serve to many?!?  Then look no further!  Barbecue Chicken Dip is a hands down crowd pleaser – at least in my office it is.

This dish is my take on the ever popular Buffalo Chicken Dip.  I simply omitted the Buffalo Sauce and added my favorite Barbecue sauce.

My favorite Barbecues Sauce hails from Canada.  I discovered Canadian Club Barbecue Sauce over a year ago at the Toronto’s Womens Show and now I need to visit Canada at least three or four times so I can stock up – I am totally not kidding.  I bought five bottles when I went visiting last month and my stock is already getting low. I have yet to find a good American counterpart and I am open to suggestions.

12 oz. pkg. Reduced Fat cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup Ranch Salad Dressing

1 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce of Choice

2 c. shredded Monterey Jack/ Colby Cheese

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a casserole dish add chicken, cream cheese, ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, and 1 cup of monterey jack/colby cheese. Cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil, stir mixture until evenly blended. Add the remainder of cheese. Return dip to the oven for an additional 2 minutes to melt cheese topping.

Serve with your favorite tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers and ENJOY!

* You can use any type chicken you prefer;rotisserie chicken, canned chicken or in my case I simply baked skinless boneless chicken breasts with my favorite seasoning.
