Ingredients Needed For Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Dip

  • Cream Cheese– cut into cubes so it will melt more easily.
  • Cooked Chicken– I use rotissierie chicken but you can use any cooked chicken.
  • BBQ Sauce– see below.
  • Bacon– cooked and crumbled.
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese– for best flavor grate your own.
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Garlic Powder
  • Green Onions– chopped red onion can be used instead.
  • Cilantro– optional. If you don’t like cilantro, don’t use it.

Type Of BBQ Sauce To Use

I like one that adds some sweetness so that it tastes like the dip version of BBQ Chicken Pizza. I typically use Sweet Baby Rays or KC Masterpiece. How much or how little BBQ Sauce you use is really up to you. I like to add about 3/4 cup of sauce to the dip and then drizzle about another 1/4 cup on top just before serving.

Suggested Equipment

Cooking Time

Cooking time can vary greatly between slow cookers. You just need to cook it long enough for the cheese to completely melt. It should take 1 1/2 to 2 hours on LOW.

Spice It Up

To make this dip spicy, either use spicy BBQ Sauce or add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper.


Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days.
