I go crazy over anything involving dips! They are SOO good and this one is absolutely no exception!! And while you’re making this one, go ahead and try these others! This Dill Pickle Dip, Million Dollar Dip, and this Hot Crab Dip are some of the BEST!

Chicken Alfredo Dip

If you’re new here then you probably don’t know that I love dips! Like, give me all the creamy and cheesy dips and I will be happy as a clam! Whether it’s a hot dip, a cold dip, or leftover dip that I have to scrape the bowl for, I am here for it! This chicken alfredo dip may just be my favorite. It is cream cheese and homemade Italian seasoning that is loaded with extra cheese and chicken. Then, it’s topped with cheese (obviously), and baked until it’s totally ooey-gooey and irresistible.

It’s perfect for game day or and hearty enough for when you’re entertaining! If we’re being honest here, you could even eat this as a casual lunch or dinner. Pair it with some crackers and some veggies (broccoli is especially great with this!) and you have yourself a very tasty dish! Or… you could use my personal favorite…. bread. You could use any kind of bread but I especially like bread with a hard crust. Like bruschetta or a crostini! This dip is addictive and once you make it once, you will come back to it again and again!

Ingredients in Easy Chicken Alfredo Dip

These ingredients combined together make the most creamy and flavorful chicken alfredo dip! Plus, they are simple and you probably already have them at your house! See the recipe card below for a list of exact measurements.

  • Butter and flour: Mixed together, this will create a roux (a thickening agent) for this dip!
  • Garlic cloves: Mince up your garlic cloves evenly. If you don’t have any fresh ones, you can use minced garlic from your fridge. ½ tsp equals about 1 clove of garlic.
  • Milk: You can use 1% or 2% for this recipe!
  • Cream cheese: This brings that delicious tangy flavor. Plus, it works as a base for the whole dip!
  • Mozzarella and parmesan cheese: Shredded cheese works the best for this!
  • Chicken: A shredded rotisserie chicken is perfect for this recipe!
  • Italian seasoning: This homemade Italian seasoning will be worth the extra 5 minutes to make!
  • Salt and pepper: Add these flavors in to enhance the other ingredients!

How to Make Chicken Alfredo Dip

If you have 30 minutes, then you have enough time to make this chicken alfredo dip! And for 25 of those minutes, this is baking in the oven! It’s super easy and the taste will be worth every second!

  3. Stir: Add in 1 cup mozzarella cheese, parmesan, chicken,Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and stir until combined.

Varitations To Try

Dips are a favorite of mine because I can switch things up so easily! Depending on what you serve them with, it can be totally different every time! Here are a few ideas on some things that go well with this chicken alfredo dip.

  • Veggies: Vegetables are SO tasty with this dip. I like to slice up cucumbers and put a bit of this on top of each of them on a plate! Or, serve this with either cooked or raw broccoli and they go SO well together. Asparagus and peppers are delicious with it too! Really, you can’t go wrong adding any veggies to this.
  • Add in some crunch: You can dip any crackers or chips or pretzels in this and they will all complement this dip so well!
  • Bread: If you have any bread on hand (especially a baguette or a crostini) then slice it up and put it on a platter with this. It makes an excellent appetizer!
  • Add it to pasta: This IS a dip but you can top on your pasta for a rich and filling meal! Trust me, it tastes like homemade alfredo!
  • Add toppings: You can top this dip with green onions, bacon, tomatoes or parsley!

Can I Make This and Store it For Later?

YES. This chicken alfredo dip is such a great appetizer and it’s especially nice to be able to cook this beforehand. That way, you can focus your time and attention on your other side dishes or your main entree!

Make it in Advance:

  • Mix but don’t cook: If you want to make this beforehand, mix it all up (but DON’T cook it) and store it in your fridge. It can be stored up to 8 hours. Take it out and cook it according to the recipe card below! Add a minute or two to the cooking time since it started out cold.

Storing Leftovers:

  • Refrigerate: Once the dip has cooled, store it in an airtight container in your fridge. It can last up to 3-4 days in the fridge.
  • Reheating: You can either bake it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (or until heated through) or, you can microwave it on high for 2 minutes. Stir every 30 seconds. Either way, when you are reheating this, make sure to stir it well after so that the cream cheese doesn’t curdle!

  1. Recipe looks delicious and started to make it but it does not say how much alfredo sauce to use unless I completely missed it! I’m going to wing it but making it for a party so I how my guesses are right lol. Please let me know how much so I get it right next time thanks

    1. The Alfredo sauce is the milk, broth, and cheese mixture that gets melted together…It’s not a separate ingredient.

  2. A good friend and I both make one supper a week that is all appetizers. She made this dip this past week and sent me the link, along with high praise, including many exclamation marks, hehe. I can’t wait to try it!

    1. Amanda-

      Sorry for delay in responding to your question! Yes. In baking the cheese should thicken up especially as it cools.

      Thanks and hope it worked for you. I know it is one of my favorites!

  3. We made this with my boyfriend during the superbowl night but I cannot wait to make it again. It was just YUMMY ???

  4. I took this to a potluck at work. OMG! This was fabulous. The only complaint was that I didn’t double the amount. The alfredo sauce was full of flavor.

  5. I want to make this for like 10 people. Do you think i can just Double everything and it would still be amazing? Maybe Triple? thanks for the help!

    1. You are making the alfredo with the ingredients. You don’t add any alfredo sauce to it. Hope that makes sense for you! It is a delicious dip and great for game night! XOXO

  6. I made this dip for a staff lunch potluck and it was a HUGE hit!! It was rich and creamy and downright delicious. I will definitely make this again!

  7. Hi, I am planning to use this dip as a filling for topping on French bread as a party appetizer for 50 people. Do you have any idea how many spoonfuls of dip the regular recipe makes?
    Thanks!

  8. Made this recipie for the first time for my family of 16 Thanksgiving feast yesterday and it was a HUGE hit. It was literally gone from the moment they all tasted it, I almost didnt get to have some lol. I altered it only slightly as we were having chicken for dinner so I didnt add chicken to the recipie. I used skim milk instead of 1% and just mixed the cream cheese straight into the pan versus a separate bowl. This dish is a definite make again!!

  9. Made this with lactose free cream cheese and milk. Increased garlic to a Tablespoon (we love garlic). Absolutely fantastic!!! Bought more chicken to do this again this weekend, absolutely fabulous with apples as dippers! It’s so good though, just about any dipper is good with this recipe!

  10. Think almond Flour would be a good substitute for the flour? Heavy cream for the milk? Keto girl here lol

  11. 5 stars
    Deeeelicious! Tasty with corn chips too, but then I would halve the salt content in the dip. I found it easier to slice the cream cheese and add to the dip mixture on the stove, stir and it will slowly melt in. We doubled the chicken amount too, but that’s personal preference. Thank you for sharing this great recipe!

  12. Can this be made a day before and then baked? I am going to a friend’s cabin that may not have all the things I need to make it such as a hand mixer.

    1. Yes, you will want to drain the chicken before adding it to the Alfredo dip. It is best to even use rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken over the canned chicken though.

  13. 5 stars
    Made this yesterday, and it’s delicious!! I made it in the morning and then popped it in the oven right before the party – perfect!!

  14. Awesome recipe! I used the almond flour and heavy cream in place of milk and flour! Definitely sharing this recipe with my sisters! Thanks so much!!!
