BBQ Chicken Dip


Serving Size:Serves 8-10


  • 1/2 Tablespoon Brennan's Cellars Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Brown sugar
  • 2 (8oz) blocks Cream Cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 2/3 cup Monterey Coast Parmesan Ranch Dressing
  • 2/3 cup Brennan's BBQ Sauce
  • 8 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, freshly grated
  • Crackers or Chips for serving



Like Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip without the heat. Serve with tortilla chips, corn chips or crusty bread, Brennans Amber beer is a must as a pairing.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Rub chicken breasts with softened butter then season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes. Let cool completely then pull chicken off the bone into bite-size pieces. While the chicken is roasting, heat a skillet oven medium-low heat. Add olive oil and onions, cooking until soft, about 5 minutes. Add in brown sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramel-y. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, mix together softened cream cheese, ranch dressing, 1/3 cup of the BBQ sauce, onions and half of the cheddar cheese. Fold in chicken.

In a casserole or baking dish (mine was 8-inch round, 4-inch deep), layer the cream cheese mixture, smoothing the top off. Cover it with the remaining BBQ sauce, then the remaining cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until bubbly and hot. Serve with crackers or chips.
