Easy Ranch Cream Cheese Chicken Dip Ingredients:
As promised, there are only a few ingredients which are: about a cup of leftover cooked chicken or a 10 oz can of chicken, eight ounces of cream cheese, one envelope of ranch dry salad dressing mix, scallions, and parsley. That’s it!
How to make Ranch Cream Cheese Chicken Dip:
If using canned chicken, drain off all of the liquid.
Add the chicken, softened cream cheese, ranch seasoning mix, scallions, and parsley to the bowl of your food processor, fitted with a steel blade.
Pulse until everything is mixed well, and the mixture is smooth.
Serve with crackers or veggies for dipping.
That’s it! Now, how easy is that?
Sharon’s Expert Tips:
I like to serve this dip with Triscuits but you can use any sturdy crackers or veggies you have on hand.
To soften the cream cheese, leave it on the counter for about an hour before blending. Or, remove the wrapper and place it in a microwave for about 30 seconds. Cream cheese which is too hard will not blend smoothly.
No scallions or parsley? No worries, make this dip anyway, it’s still delicious!
If you use canned chicken, be sure to drain it before adding it to the food processor.
