How to Make Ranch Chicken Dip
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Serve or refrigerate.
- The dip can also be warmed quickly in the microwave if desired.
You can use any type of cooked, shredded chicken for this dip. It’s a great way to use up leftover chicken, or follow my crockpot shredded chicken recipe to make your own. I like using rotisserie chicken in a pinch, but you can also use canned chicken.
Hidden Valley Ranch and McCormick are gluten free. Be sure to double-check the ingredients if you choose a different brand. The rest of the ingredients are naturally gluten free, and you can serve this dip with your favorite gluten free crackers.
Yes, you can. While full-fat cream cheese contributes extra creaminess and flavor, there’s so much going on in this dip that I doubt you’ll miss it!
Trying to mix ingredients at different temperatures can cause your dip to become lumpy. To prevent lumps in your dip, use room temperature ingredients. Leave the cream cheese and sour cream on the counter for about 1 hour before using, or microwave for 30 seconds.
Make Ahead Instructions
Ranch chicken dip can be made up to 2 days in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Let dip come to room temperature (about 30-60 minutes) before serving.
Store leftover ranch chicken dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I do not recommend freezing this dip.
Try adding a bit of salsa to change up the taste, or add a few tablespoons of Buffalo sauce to make Buffalo ranch chicken dip. Add ¼ cup of chopped celery for crunch.
Serve ranch chicken dip with crackers, chips, toasted bread, or sturdy raw vegetables. You can even spread it on rolls for ranch chicken sandwiches!
