Chicken Bacon Ranch Pickle Poppers – I can honestly say that I’m not sure if more delicious words have ever been put together in a sentence, let alone a recipe. If you’ve been following my content for any amount of time, you’ll know that I’m a sucker for all things bacon, and pickles, and I’m always looking for ways to bring the 2 together.

Chicken bacon ranch pickle poppers might just be the perfect way to bring all of these flavors together. This dish combines multiple savory flavors balanced out with the honey based seasoning Queen Bee to bring it all together.

Let’s Prep:

Time to bring all of the ingredients together before we start cooking. It’s a simple recipe (below) that is pretty straightforward to put together and cook. This chicken bacon ranch recipe has all the flavors you’d expect plus the salty and savory flavor of bacon that you’d expect with the whole thing wrapped up in a slice of it.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pickle Poppers

The first thing that I like to do in this recipe is prep the pickles for before the chicken bacon ranch flavors come together. I prefer to work in an assembly line fashion, so this makes it easy. Slice the ends off of your pickles so that you have flat ends. Next you’re going to slice your pickles horizontally to have 2 equal halves that should mirror each other in size.

Grab a spoon and scrape out the inside of the pickle. You’ll be left with a canoe-shaped pickle that will hold all of the chicken bacon ranch flavored goodness inside of a delicious dill pickle. You can really start to see how this is all coming together!

Once your pickles are prepped it’s time to put together the cream cheese mixture to fill them with. In a bowl large enough to hold it all, mix your cream cheese with the finely chopped chicken and ranch seasoning. That’s it!

Stuff your pickles with as much as the cream cheese mixture as it’ll hold without spilling out, and keep it as level across the top as possible, then wrap in bacon and season. It doesn’t get much easier than this!

Let’s Cook:

Now that the pickles are stuff and seasoned, place them on a wire baking rack – this makes it a LOT easier to cook these and move them around on and off your smoker, or in and out of oven. I prefer this method especially when cooking multiple items that are a little smaller in size because the time required to take the items on and off can be significant relative to the cooking time needed.

Said in a different way – the chicken bacon ranch pickle poppers will cook more evenly when cooked like this.

Cook these for 35-40 minutes at 400F until the bacon is a dark amber color (or to your preference). Be careful about not letting them turn dark brown or charred black on the smoker as this will leave you with a burnt flavor on your chicken bacon ranch pickle poppers.

Let’s Eat:

Now that you’ve given them the time to cook that they need, it’s time to remove them from the heat, and let them cool for just a couple minutes (5-10 minutes should work well) – this is just to make sure there’s no hot grease on the bacon, or molten cream cheese that will burn your mouth or the mouth of your guests.

These chicken bacon ranch pickle poppers will hit the spot for any appetizer or snack needs for the big game, the tailgate, backyard cookout, or just to feed yourself or family. These chicken bacon ranch pickle poppers won’t let you down!

Mix up a dipping sauce with a 50/50 mix of buffalo sauce and ranch dressing for the perfect accompaniment to this dish.
