What’s the best chicken to use?

I like to make this with chicken breast rather than thighs, but both will work. I find that some people prefer the texture of chicken breasts, so if you have picky eaters, those are probably best to use.

What’s the best way to cook the chicken?

I like to bake the chicken breasts in the oven, it’s an eay to prep and hands off method, but you can also cook them on a skillet or in an Instant Pot or Crockpot. To save time, you can also use a store-bought rotisserie chicken.

  • Crockpot Shredded Chicken Breast

Can you make it ahead of time?

This BBQ chicken dip is best served warm, straight out of the oven. You can make up the baking dish and keep it refrigerated for a day and then bake it when you are ready to serve.

Recipe Tips and Notes

  • Double for a large party and bake in a 9×13 inch pan.
  • Serve with tortilla chips, potato chips, bread or veggies!
  • I like to use a full fat cream cheese for the richest flavor, but you can use low fat if you prefer.
  • The cream cheese should be at room temperature so that it’s easy to combine with the other ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces cream cheese 1 package, softened
  • 1 cup bbq sauce divided
  • ½ cup ranch dressing
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 2 green onions chopped, divided

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425℉. Rub the chicken breasts with oil, salt, and pepper. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and cook for 18-25 minutes until the thickest part of the breast reads 165℉ on a thermometer. Set aside to cool to touch, then chop into bite sized pieces.

    2 large chicken breasts, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt & pepper

  • Lower the oven temperature to 350℉. In a bowl, stir together the cream cheese, ¾ cup barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, sour cream, half of the cheese and half of the green onion with the chicken pieces.

    8 ounces cream cheese, 1 cup bbq sauce, ½ cup ranch dressing, ¼ cup sour cream, 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese, 2 green onions

  • Spoon into an 8×8 baking dish, smoothing out the top. Top with remaining ¼ cup bbq sauce and sprinkle on the remaining cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the cheese is melted and the dip is bubbling around the edges.

    1 cup bbq sauce

  • Garnish with the remaining green onions and enjoy!

Notes

  • To save time, use a store-bought rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken.
  • Double for a large party and bake in a 9×13 inch pan.
  • Serve with tortilla chips, potato chips, bread or veggies!
  • I like to use a full fat cream cheese for the richest flavor, but you can use low fat if you prefer.

Storage: Store BBQ chicken dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 days.

What is butterfly chicken? ›

What is the difference between shredded chicken and pulled chicken? ›

There is no difference between shredded chicken and pulled chicken; both terms can be used interchangeably. Both refer to meat cooked until tender, then “pulled” or “shredded” along the meat's grain. Shredded and pulled chicken are popular in sandwiches, soups, pizzas, tacos, enchiladas, and casseroles.

Why is my pulled chicken chewy? ›

In addition, chicken breast has less fat and can become dry (chewy or rubbery) if cooked for too long. Without moisture, the protein fibers in the chicken become elastic. Included with each meal is a set of instructions to help you cook the meals.

What to beat chicken with? ›

You can use almost any heavy, flat object to pound the breast — a skillet, a meat mallet, even an empty wine bottle.

What is the best way to apply BBQ sauce? ›

How do you get barbecue sauce to stick to skinless chicken? ›

Place enough sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish to be able to spread it around and cover the bottom. Place 1 cup of flour in a shallow bowl. Dip each chicken breast into flour on both sides and place in the baking dish top side down. Spoon remaining sauce over them, making sure to coat the chicken.

How do you get barbecue sauce to stick to chicken in the oven? ›

Roast the chicken for 10 minutes, then brush with more sauce. Return the chicken to the oven and roast for 10 minutes more. Brush the chicken all over again with the sauce. Roast for an additional 10 minutes until burnished and sticky.

Can you put BBQ sauce on chicken and grill it? ›

Grill the chicken, covered, for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the chicken, and then brush with some of the barbecue sauce. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. (Note that tenderloins will cook faster than breasts.)
