  • 1 ½ (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope ranch dressing mix

  • 1 ¾ cups shredded rotisserie chicken

  • 1 ½ cups sour cream

  • 1 cup cooked and chopped bacon (about 12 slices), plus more for garnish

  • ½ cup sliced scallions (from 2 large scallions), plus more for garnish

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 ¾ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Place cream cheese and ranch dressing mix in a microwaveable, broiler-safe 9-inch square casserole dish. Microwave on HIGH until combined and cream cheese is very soft, stirring halfway through, about 1 minute.

  3. Remove from microwave; stir in chicken, sour cream, bacon, scallions, pepper, and 1 cup Cheddar cheese. Top with remaining 3/4 cup cheddar.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes. Increase oven temperature to broil; cook until cheese is lightly golden brown in spots, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with additional bacon and scallions. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

You can make the dip entirely in the microwave as well. Prepare the recipe as directed through Step 2, without topping with the 3/4 cup cheddar. Microwave on HIGH until hot and melted, stirring occasionally, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from the microwave, and top with remaining 3/4 cup cheddar. Top with additional bacon and scallions, and serve.
