Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Total Time:
35 mins
  • 3 bone-in chicken breasts
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 (8-ounce) blocks cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 2/3 cups ranch dressing
  • 2/3 cups your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated
  • crackers or chips for serving
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Rub chicken breasts with softened butter then season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes. Let cool completely then pull chicken off the bone into bite-size pieces. While the chicken is roasting, heat a skillet oven medium-low heat. Add olive oil and onions, cooking until soft, about 5 minutes. Add in brown sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramely. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together softened cream cheese, ranch dressing, 1/3 cup of the BBQ sauce, onions and half of the cheddar cheese. Fold in chicken.
  3. In a casserole or baking dish (mine was 8-inch round, 4-inch deep), layer the cream cheese mixture, smoothing the top off. Cover it with the remaining BBQ sauce, then the remaining cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until bubbly and hot. Serve with crackers or chips.
