Barbecue Chicken Cream Cheese Dip {Recipe}

A few years ago, when I first started blogging, a college friend, Ruth (from The Stiles Family), introduced me to a Chicken Wing Dip recipe. The first time I made it, I switched up a couple of ingredients (substituting barbecue sauce for hot sauce and Ranch dressing for Blue Cheese; Ruth actually suggested the Ranch dressing). It’s been a family favorite ever since, and every year about Superbowl time, we make it and enjoy. There’s just something about cream cheese and barbecue sauce mixed together…. yum!Barbecue Chicken Cream Cheese Dip Appetizer {MamaBuzz-}

      It’s really yummy and a little addicting, I have to admit. We don’t make it too often because it’s gone in a flash when we do.:) Thanks so much, Angie!

    I made this for a book club gathering and the ladies loved it! I used the precooked shredded chicken in a can from Costco and it worked wonderfully and made the recipe even easier to prepare. This is something you could put together the night before then just pop in the oven before a gathering. Definitely a keeper for the future :)
