Easy Cheesy Ranch Chicken Dip

Easy Cheesy Ranch Chicken Dip

One night a few weeks ago, when Justin was at a meeting, I got a craving for some time of dip, but I had no idea what to make. We were getting very low on groceries, and I had some chicken thawed that I didn’t make for dinner that night.

So I started digging through the refrigerator and pantry to see what I could throw together. I had some Wheat Thins crackers, which are always my favorite for a dip, and thought I might be able to make a chicken dip. I bought the crackers to make my buffalo chicken dip since I haven’t posted that here yet, but I didn’t know we were out of buffalo sauce.

What did I have on hand? Cream cheese, cheddar cheese, chicken, and ranch powder. And my trusty crackers.

The chicken was still uncooked, so I went ahead and boiled the chicken. While it was cooking, I got the cream cheese out so it could soften a bit. It’s not my favorite way to cook chicken, but if it’s going in something like a dip, then it isn’t too bad. And it shreds easily, especially in the stand mixer.

After I shredded the chicken, I added in the rest of the ingredients and folded it all together to make this easy cheesy ranch chicken dip. And it was delicious! I know I say the recipe makes about eight servings but I ate almost half of it in one night!

Justin tried some the next day and loved it as well. The great thing about the dip is you can eat it warm or cold, and both ways are delicious. Of course, you can use other crackers such as club crackers or Ritz crackers, but my favorite is always the Wheat Thins.

This dip was so easy to make, I realized afterward that I forgot to take any photos while I was making it. The dip took about 10-15 minutes to make, only because I had to cook the chicken. You could also use a rotisserie chicken, especially if you like both the light and dark meat, which would cut down on the prep time as well.
