Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb bacon chopped (see note)
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup shredded chicken breast I like to use rotisserie for quick prep.
  • 1 shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp barbecue seasoning
  • scallions for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add bacon pieces and diced onion to a large skillet and cook over medium high heat until bacon is cooked and onions are translucent. Drain the grease and set aside.
  • Whip bacon and onions are cooking, add cream cheese, barbecue sauce, chicken breast, cheddar cheese, and barbecue seasoning to a large bowl and beat with a hand held mixer until folly combined. Mix in the bacon and onion until combined. Feel free to set a little bacon aside to scatter on the top for a mouthwatering presentation.
  • Add dip to a shallow dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until bubbly.
  • Remove from oven and top with extra bacon and chopped scallions.

Notes

  • I've found that the easiest way to cook and crumble bacon is by using clean kitchen shears to cut it into bits before cooking.
