How to Make Pimento Cheese Chicken Dip
First, you’ll need some pimento cheese.
I love this recipe — and it’s a winner with a LOT of y’all.
So, put as much as you need in a big bowl.
I had a cup and a half left + a cup of chicken.
The chicken dip baked in a ramekin like this one and was the perfect snack portion for a few of us to enjoy with wine on the deck.
Second, you’ll need some shredded chicken
You could shred some leftover Ranch Grilled Meal Prep Chicken if you’ve got some on hand.
Here’s an Easy Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken recipe for you if you’re into that sort of thing!
So, depending on how much you need, shred it up!
I used one cup of chicken, but that was for about 4-6 “servings.” And by servings, I mean, 6 polite people who will only top a few crackers. Or, 4 hungry people who this is their dinner.
The third step is to mix all of this up in a big bowl.
Really mix it up, y’all — you want the chicken evenly incorporated with the pimento cheese so that every bite has the perfect ratios!
Finally, bake the dip until melted and bubbly!
This only takes 10-15 minutes to bake up, depending on the size of your dish.
The ramekin for 4 took only 12 minutes to melt up and get all brown and delicious.
Serve this with a platter full of crackers, or bread slices.
So good, y’all!
Can you make this with store-bought pimento cheese?
Of course, you can!
Can you make this with canned chicken?
Yep! Sure, can!
If you’ve got any leftover cover it tightly or put into an air-tight container in the fridge.
You can reheat it in the oven by putting it into an oven-safe baking dish, and reheating at 325˚ for about 10 minutes. Just keep an eye on it!
