Easy Cheesy Chicken Dip is just the ticket for game days and gatherings when you need a super quick, flavorful appetizer. This cheesy chicken dip needs only 5 ingredients and 5 minutes. No baking. Serve with crackers, chips, or veggies.



2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz whole cream cheese, fully softened*
1/2 cup good hot sauce (I like Frank’s hot sauce )
1/2 cup good quality ranch dressing
2 cans (25 oz each) chunk chicken breast, drained
[Optional: 1 bunch chives, chopped]


In a bowl, mix together hot sauce, ranch dressing, and fully softened cream cheese until mixture is fully smooth without lumps. Add cheddar cheese and stir to combine. Add chicken and stir to shred chicken and combine. Add chives if desired. Transfer to serving dish and serve chilled or room temp, with crackers, chips, baguette slices, or veggies.


  • Soften cream cheese fully by removing from foil and placing in glass bowl; microwave in 30 second increments until fully soft and able to be mixed in without lumps
  • Use whole cream cheese and whole cheddar cheese; lowfat veresions don’t not work well for this recipe
