Chicken, Bacon, Ranch and Cheddar Cheese are combined with cream cheese and green onions and baked, creating this creamy and indulgent Chicken Crack Dip.
Chicken Crack. It may not sound “nice” but I promise you, the tongue-in-cheek title for this concoction is the best way to define the most delicious thing you’ve ever tasted. It’s so addictive you won’t want to put it down!
It’s no secret that I am total sucker for cheesy dips – take my Garlic Bread Cheese Dip or Hot Bacon Dip – they are all super cheesy, creamy and incredible. I mean, when you dip that piece of toasted bread or a crispy tortilla chip and pull out all that flavorful, ooey-gooey goodness it’s like heaven. Angels sing and lights are shining down.
Ok maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but you get that “oh-my-gosh” feeling for sure.
This crack dip is super easy to whip up, and you probably even have all of the ingredients on hand already! Here are the ingredients you need to make Crack Chicken Dip:
Hot sauce or buffalo sauce is an optional ingredient that I included in the recipe below. It not necessary as the dip itself already has a ton of flavor, but if definitely will add a healthy kick if that’s what you’re looking for.
So all of these ingredients are mixed together really well, and spread into a small baking dish. It may be tempting to use a larger baking dish, but then you’d have to double the recipe…which come to think of it wouldn’t be a bad thing because this stuff is guaranteed to disappear fast!
This is a pretty hearty dip, so you’ll want to use a hearty vessel for dipping. Wimpy crackers need not apply! Here are a few suggestions:
This chicken crack dip reheats quite nicely in the microwave if you happen to have leftovers. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Scoop your desired amount into a microwaveable container and heat at for 30 second intervals stirring in between.
Here are some more highly addictive dips to try – you can thank me later.
Tools used to make this Chicken Crack Dip:
Hand mixer – Helpful for beating the cream cheese, and also for shredding chicken. Love this brand because it’s got it’s own storage case to keep the beaters handy and the cord stowed away.
1 quart casserole dish – the perfect size for dips. An 8-inch square works as well, but I prefer this shape with no deep corners.
Box grater – I love the large handle, and the different grate sizes.
Cut resistant glove – I use one of these glove every single time I use my grater or mandolin. Keeps your knuckles safe for harm!
