BBQ Chicken Dip | www.tasteandtellblog.com
I feel like I’m just getting into the swing of summertime, even though it seems like the summer is getting cut short by all the talk of school starting and fall just around the corner.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m excited about fall, too, but I’m holding onto the last of summer.  The late sun, the time at the grill, and the bountiful fruits and veggies.

One thing is for sure – there is still plenty of time for summertime parties.  The weather is still hot, the pools are still cool, and we all still need excuses to get together, right??

BBQ Chicken Dip | Taste and Tell
I was asked by the makers of Swanson Chicken to come up with a summer party favorite – or to reinvent one.  This is a reinvention that I’m surprised I haven’t thought of before!  We all probably know the super popular Buffalo Chicken dip.  That stuff is dangerous.  But guess what?  There are people out there that don’t like buffalo sauce.  I don’t know any of them, (that just pure crazy to me), but I thought I’d come up with something that would be just as crowd pleasing, but without the spice factor.

Let me tell you – this was just as addicting as it’s buffalo counterpart.  Do not give a pregnant woman a sleeve of crackers and a dish full of this dip.  It will mean no dinner that night because someone won’t be hungry anymore after stuffing her face with BBQ Chicken Dip!

If you have an end of summer party, this dip is sure to be a hit!

  5. Thanks for linkng up my dip and boy, what you made looks awesome – and anything with bbq sauce, ranch, cheese – and Ritz (love em) is always gonna be a hit!

  6. as much fun as I have making buffalo recipes… BBQ is where my heart is!

  7. carrian says:

    That looks so addicting. The buffalo version is always too spicy for me, so this is perfect!

  8. Eleni says:

    Ooh it looks yummy! I live in Greece and we don’t have canned chicken. Could I use leftover slow cooker chicken pieces? They would be a bit more moist than roast chicken. We also don’t have ranch dressing (crazy isn’t it?). Would Greek yogurt with mayo do? Or the British salad cream dressing? Any ideas would be appreciated!

  9. Kim says:

    I just ran out and bought all the stuff to make this dip. LOL! Looks delicious.

  10. Emily says:

    Totally pinned!

  11. This is sooo my kind of dip. Love how easy it is!

  12. Amy J says:

    Buffalo Chicken Dip IS addicting! I can’t wait to make your BBQ version! I have some frozen chicken to cook up, so I’ll probably use that – and tortilla chips or veggies (for dipping) as I’m eating gluten-free. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  13. Cassie says:

    This is beyond perfect snack food Deborah. My husband is a BBQ sauce fanatic, he will go crazy for this!

  14. Jennifer @ Mother Thyme says:

    You must have been reading my mind I was just thinking of a dip like this! Can’t wait to try!

  15. Oh this is a perfect snack to bring to our next bbq!

  16. Sasha says:

    Ooh awesome idea! I love that you baked it.

  17. I love Ritz crackers, this dip looks like just the thing to dollop on top!

  18. Kristy says:

    Perfect timing, our last summer party is next weekend (although I plan to hang on to summer for a while longer!

  19. Mel says:

    My husband would die over this – BBQ chicken is one of his favorite flavors. Love this, Deborah!

  20. Kim says:

    I made this tonight and we loved it, thanks!!

    Got me thinking I should create a pinboard for recipe using leftover chicken.

  21. teresa says:

    i want that dip in my belly!

  22. Rachel Cooks says:

    I’ve never used canned chicken before but this looks like a serious winner!

  23. HOLY HECK! I like bbq sauce WAYYYYYY better than buffalo sauce. You really, really, really knocked it outta the park with this one Deborah. I’m pinning this and MUST remake it asap. My bf and I will go nuts because we are known to make a huge bowl of a dip – guacamole, hummus, spinach dip… and eat the whole darn thing ourselves! can’t wait to try this :)

  24. This is a great idea for those that don’t like spicy. I can see it being just as addicting as the buffalo one. I am savoring the last few weeks of summer. I love that it is light out until 8pm.

  25. Monet says:

    Delicious! I am always looking for fun and tasty dips. So great for entertaining! And we still have a long way to go before it starts to cool down here in Austin! Thank you for sharing with me!

  26. Angie says:

    This looks perfect for a party! Yummy!

  27. I’m with ya! I don’t want summer to end this year! I will hang onto every moment of summer I’m sure until I am forced to celebrate Halloween! : ) This dip looks and sounds fabulous! I’m not pregnant but whenever I get around dip I cannot stop snacking. I have a recipe for spinach artichoke dip that I could eat all in one sitting and I’m sure I could do that to this dip!

  28. Oh I’m gonna have to try an adapted version of this, thanks have pinned for another day.

  30. grace says:

    i’m pretty excited about this. i was going to say that i’ve never had meet in a dip or spread, but then i remembered one of my favorite cheese balls which uses dried beef. so thanks, deborah, two times!

  31. Joanne says:

    I agree! I feel like I barely enjoyed summer this year. Here’s to more bbqs and fun dips!

  32. that dip looks incredible! I cannot wait to try it.

  33. Janette D says:

    I would like to know, could you adapt this to be made in a crock pot, instead of the oven, as I do with my buffalo chix dip? I throw it all in, stir often and wait til its heated, then we dip at keep it warm throughout the party/evening…thank you!

  34. Lily says:

    This dip is ment to be for summer, right?you should try it cold….. Take away the Monterrey cheese and instead of the BBQ add chipotle sauce… And blend all the ingredients …… Refrigerate …. Uuuf enjoy the summer with a cold fresh dip! You can try it without the BBQ and add ham, bologna etc …….
    I am from the north of Mexico …. From the desert, Sonora! So, the hot summer force me to eat coooold dips! Enjoy girls :)

  35. Karen says:

    I made this tonight for a World Cup party and there was not a bite left. Rave reviews all around!thank you!

  36. Ingrid says:

    Made it, baked it, ate it, LOVED IT!!! We took it to a New Year’s Eve gathering & it was a huge it. Of course we did not give the recipe… This will be going to all future get togethers. I thought I would jazz it up by offering beer bread & fancy crackers BUT the ritz cracker won hands down. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!! Fantastic!
