Chicken Bacon Ranch Skillet Dip Ingredients

To make this chicken dip appetizer, you will need the following ingredients (see the recipe card below for exact amounts):

  • Cream cheese: I used full fat Philadelphia cream cheese, but you can use reduced fat as well.
  • Sour cream
  • Spicy Ranch Dip: Hidden Valley is a great choice. If you don’t like things spicy you can use regular ranch dip.
  • Canned chicken: Canned chicken is moist and good, but you can substitute any cooked, shredded chicken like a Rotisserie chicken.
  • Green chile: these add a delicious spice to the dish, but you can omit them if you don’t like spicy.
  • Bacon: you definitely don’t want to omit this!
  • Monterey Jack cheese: substitute with any cheese you like.
  • Pepper Jack cheese: gives this another bit of spice, but feel free to use another kind if you want.
  • Chives: these are milder than green onions. Omit if you prefer.
