Spicy Chicken Dip Recipe

This Chicken Dip Recipe is made spicy by adding jalapeños and it is wonderful. My favorite way to eat the dip is on crostini, but it also makes a great sandwich spread.

So many options –  dip at a party, sandwich spread for your family or something you whip up at the last minute to impress your friends!

If you want to turn down the temperature, this recipe can be prepared with the wonderful flavor of mild green chilis instead of the jalapeños!

The original recipe came from a friend of mine and it contained a lot more cream cheese than chicken so I changed it so it’s more about spicy chicken made creamy with less cream cheese!

Spicy Chicken Spread
1 lb of cooked chicken –  shredded
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup chicken broth
1 – 4 oz can mild green chili’s – drained
1 – 4 oz can diced jalapenos – drained (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste

I always use the entire can of green chilis and only a tablespoon or two of the jalapeños. The jalapenos have a wonderful flavor that I love, but adding the entire can makes it too spicy for me!  For those in my family that can’t seem to get enough spice, I keep the left over diced jalapeños as a condiment!

Combine all the ingredients together, stir well and heat in a covered  crock pot for at least an hour.  Stir occasionally while cooking.

When I am in a hurry, I microwave all the ingredients for a few minutes in a bowl  and then pour them into the crock pot. This speeds things up, but don’t skip the crock pot all together. Allowing the chicken mixture to simmer in the crock pot adds something special to the recipe!

  1. Hi Renee – This is so fun! I have 2 questions – what if you don’t have a crockpot? And do you have any good recipes for baking skinless, boneless chicken breasts?

    1. Thanks for the questions Shelley! The Spicy Chicken Dip could be microwaved until hot. Mix it well and enjoy. If you prepare it in the microwave, use less chicken stock! A better option would be to bake it covered in an oven until bubbly! I will work on additional recipes for baking chicken!! Thank you!
