When I dip, you dip, we dip! Name that song while making this BBQ ranch chicken dip, and I will love you forever and ever. You’ll probably love me forever after you make this recipe, but I won’t get ahead of myself just yet.
If you are like me, dips can easily be a meal within themselves. So if that’s the case, make a double batch of it so you have one for yourself and the rest can be shared with friends and family. Seriously though, this bbq ranch chicken dip recipe has quickly become a party favorite and it’s always on the menu when I have people over for dinner. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser, and perfectly alongside other sides for things like a dinner party or movie night.
You can also turn this into a meal. Just make a big leafy green salad and top it with this bbq ranch chicken dip. Add a little more barbecue sauce and ranch dressing, and BOOM! …a delicious and nutritious salad.
I personally love serving it with those baby bell peppers, but these would also be great with some Siete grain free tortilla chips. You could also just take a spoon and eat it directly out of the dish because it is THAT delicious. Seriously, I have done it before and I’m not even ashamed. Who doesn’t love bbq sauce mixed with ranch dressing?! I mean, really.
