Step aside, Buffalo chicken. Move it along, basic bean dip. The game day dip to rule all game day dips has arrived. This bold yet balance BBQ Chicken Bean Dip has so much going for it: It’s easy to make, you likely have most of the necessary ingredients on hand, and most importantly—this cheesy chicken appetizer will be a winner with any crowd. The barbecue sauce used in to make the dip couldn’t be easier to mix up, and it’s one you can come back to again and again for all of your BBQ needs; however, if you want to shave a few minutes off the recipe, you can certainly use your favorite bottled sauce instead. We suggest topping the dip with cheese towards the end of baking in order to prevent the dip from becoming too greasy.

Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare the Beans: Whisk together all ingredients in a large bowl until smooth.

  • Prepare the Chicken: Stir together ketchup, vinegar, mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt in a saucepan over medium-high; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer, whisking often to keep it from sticking, until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add shredded chicken; toss to coat.

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spread bean mixture in an even layer in bottom of an 11- x 7-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Arrange chicken mixture evenly over top of beans. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake in preheated oven until bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes. Uncover, and top evenly with cheese. Return to oven; bake at 425°F until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with scallions; serve with corn chips.
