How to Make Garlic Parmesan Dip Recipe with Chicken

  1. Prep - Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a small casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  2. Mix the ingredients - In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, except about half the parmesan cheese, and mix well. Taste for seasoning and add more if need be.
  3. Add it to the pan - Spread the cream cheese mixture in the bottom of the prepared dish. Make sure it’s even, then top with the rest of the cheese.
  4. Bake - Bake the garlic parmesan dip for about 15 minutes or until the cheese has fully melted on the top. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

  • Storage - Store this garlic parmesan chicken dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can also cover the casserole dish it’s in with plastic or a lid and this will work as well. I don’t suggest freezing this dish. 
  • Reheating - Place in the oven for a few minutes to heat it up or the microwave works as well. Be sure the dish it’s in is microwave safe. 
  • Make it spicy - Add in some crushed red pepper or pickled jalapenos to this appetizer to give it a kick. 
  • Can I use chilled cream cheese? - You don’t want to try and use chilled cream cheese in this recipe. When it comes to effectively mixing the cream cheese with the rest of the ingredients, it will be about impossible to do so. Room temperature cream cheese is the best for making this garlic parmesan dip and easy recipe. 
  • Use leftover chicken - This dish is great for using up extra chicken or even using canned chicken if you’re in a pinch. Rotisserie chicken is one of my favorite options.

Common Questions About Garlic Parmesan Dip Recipe with Chicken

How Long Can Garlic Parmesan Chicken Dip Sit Out?

I would not suggest leaving it to sit out for longer than 6-8 hours. It’s definitely understandable if you’re using it for a party and need to leave it out for the duration of the event.

However, if there are periods where people aren’t going to be around the food or eating it, it may be smart to stick it in the fridge.

Chicken is the worst for bacteria when it’s left out. So, the safest route is just to not leave it out any longer than you have to. If you leave it out overnight, I suggest tossing it. 

Can You Freeze Keto Chicken Garlic Parmesan Dip?

You definitely can freeze it, but I wouldn't suggest it. I wasn’t a fan of how it tasted after it had been frozen and reheated. Of course, I could be a little picky. If you plan on freezing it, be sure it’s placed in an airtight container.

To reheat, let it sit out and come to room temperature on its own before popping it in the oven or microwave.
