Cheesy, slightly spicy, and generously filled with enough chicken to make it hearty enough for a meal, this Cheesy Chicken Dip is a hit.

This hot dip was so tasty, we couldn’t stop snacking on it as it was cooling the first time we made it.

Cheesy Chicken Dip is a hearty appetizer or meal on its own.

I like to serve this hot chicken dip for lunch along with a big pile of tortilla chips and there is never a single bite leftover.

Similar to Chicken Enchilada Dip or Loaded Baked Potato Dip, this is definitely a whole meal in an awesomely scoop-able hot dip.

Chicken Cheese Dip

Seven years ago, my oldest son brought me a new recipe that he had written for Sriracha Chicken Cheese Dip.

Sam has a long time love of Sriracha sauce and he wanted to make a chicken dip with his favorite rooster sauce.

In case you don’t recall, this is my child who was eating foods spicy enough to make me cry when he was just two years old.

After tweaking his recipe just a tiny bit, we came up with a cheesy chicken dip that was an enormous success.

He was so proud of his creation, he agreed to pose for a picture right after he declared this recipe, “the most awesome chip dip EVER!”

Guess we’ll work on his humility later, this really is delicious.

Sriracha Chicken Dip is a cheesy, hearty chicken dip.

Sam now wears his collection of hot sauce t-shirts in regular rotation and he’s still my right hand in the kitchen. 

He’s taller than me, by more than a little bit now too. This parenting thing is fun, but it sure makes me realize just how fast time is flying some years.

Hot Chicken Dip with plenty of cheese and a hit of hot sauce is a hit.

Cheesy Chicken Dip

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Beat the cream cheese with a mixer until smooth. (This should only take a minute or so.)
  2. Add the ranch dip and stir again. Add the sriracha, starting with just a couple of teaspoons and tasting before adding more.
  3. Add the chicken and about 2/3 of the shredded cheese. Stir to combine and then transfer to a small 1-quart baking dish or individual crocks. Sprinkle the remaining cheese and top.
  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until bubbling and slightly browned around the edges. Let cool a few minutes before serving.

      I enjoy buffalo chicken dip as well, but this is a different flavor. Buffalo dip is usually made with bleu cheese and Franks. I just checked out your link though and they are similar dips.

    • Nick Munyat says

      Franks has nothing on Sriracha. Franks gets too runny and the flavor isn't as good. Even if I use a hot sauce other than Sriracha, it's something with some pulp to it, like Torchbearer sauces, which are fantastic, all natural, almost puree sauces. I can't wait to try this twist on the chicken dip as some of the ingredients do differ from what I've used in the past.

    There is a link for the ranch dip recipe in the ingredient list. If you are using store bought dip, that would be a pre-made dip, not a powder.

    I’ve been making this for a few years for parties after a friend brought some over. A few tweaks I’ve made:

    – Usually I baste the chicken with sriracha and grill it. That combination adds a nice flavor.

    – For vegetarians I make another batch, replacing the chicken with sauteed onion and red pepper. Really nice sweet flavor.5 stars

    This looks awesome. I can’t wait to try it. I wanted to ask if I could post this on my KETO group website? We are a wonderful group and love to share recipes. This one looks perfect for KETO as we could use KETO ranch dressing as a substitute.

    Thanks,
    Rome
