Spicy Honey BBQ Chicken Dip

A memorable gathering starts with the right apps. This chicken dip stars chicken perfectly smoked and shredded, combined with a base of cream cheese, cheddar cheese, our Bar-B-Q sauce in Honey, hot sauce (use your favorite), and ranch dressing, then baked to bubbling. Top with a drizzle of sauce and chopped green onions.

Heat smoker to 225 degrees F.

Season chicken generously with Head Country Championship Seasoning.

Smoke chicken until an instant-read thermometer shows an internal temperature of 165. Remove from smoker and allow to cool.

Once the chicken is cool to touch, shred into bite-sized pieces.

Combine the shredded chicken with the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, ranch dressing, hot sauce, and Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce. Mix to combine.

Add dip to the smoker for another 30 minutes, or until the mixture is thoroughly heated.

Garnish with green onions and blue cheese. Serve immediately with your favorite dippers: tortilla chips, carrots, celery, pita, and even chicken wings. Enjoy!
