Cheesy Barbecue Ranch Chicken Dip

Cheesy Barbecue Ranch Chicken Dip is a fun way to turn dinner on its head.  It's rich, cheesy barbecue-y and this simple recipe is prepped even before the oven is done preheating. That my friends is a win in this moms book.

My family is pretty picky and I tend to stick with the basics. I cook a lot of chicken and some times the same old thing can get pretty boring. So we decided to twist it up and have a little fun with it. barbecue chicken is a dinner favorite but what about Cheesy Barbecue Ranch Chicken Dip? That is exciting!

Not to mention, a dinner that you can dip is always fun. Just about anything dip-able in our house is a win for the whole family.  It starts with creamy cheesy ranch layer that is topped with hickory brown sugar barbecue chicken and sprinkled with melty Colby jack cheese. It really rocked dinner time and I even ate it for lunch for the next few days.

I really love how easy this recipe is. It came together in about 5 minutes and then I just tossed it in the oven. This is the perfect dinner, lunch or appetizer. You really can't go wrong with barbecue chicken and when it is transformed into a glorious dip, its sure to knock their socks off.


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. Oh! Seriously, I want to devour this. Skip the chips, where's my fork?

  2. Some of my fave flavors in a dip! Saving this for my next party!

  3. If you have any leftovers, just stuff it into hollowed out halved jalapenos, wrap in a half slice of bacon and fire roast or back until the bacon is finished. Now I'm going to have to make this and hide it from our son so I have leftovers. Is that selfish of me? ha ha

  4. Will this work in the crock pot also?
