Smoked Garlicky Shredded Chicken Dip

Easily one of the most savory dips out there. This cheesy, creamy, garlicky chicken dip is smoked nirvana that’s perfect for dipping with tortilla chips, pita pieces or toasted baguette.

Let's get grilling


Fill the hopper of a pellet grill with Kingsford® Classic Pellets. Turn pellet grill on and set to 300°F.


Cut the very tops off the garlic heads, exposing the cloves inside. Spray the garlic with a little oil, then bundle each head in some foil, and place into the smoker to cook until tender, about 45 minutes.


Squeeze the tender garlic cloves out of the papery peel, place into a large bowl, then mash roughly with a fork.


To the bowl add the cream cheese, sour cream, 1 cup of cheddar, 2 tablespoons of parsley, chicken and hot sauce. Stir to combine, taste, and add salt if desired.


Spoon the mixture into a 10” skillet, and smooth out the top. Spread over remaining cheese, and place back into the smoker for 25–30 minutes until warmed through.


Garnish with remaining parsley, and serve with optional dippers like tortilla chips, pita pieces etc.
