  • 2 cups chicken chopped (about 2 breasts)
  • 12 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce see notes
  • 1.5 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese divided
  • 2 green onions chopped and divided
  • 1 corn cob or 1 cup of corn
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Tabasco (or other hot sauce) to taste
  • 2 bags Brazi Bites or small frozen rolls


  1. Preheat your grill to high.
  2. Mix the cream cheese and BBQ sauce together until smooth before adding the chopped chicken, 1 cup of cheese, 1 green onion, corn, Tabasco and black pepper.
  3. Line your cast iron with 2 rows of Brazi Bites or rolls** before piling the center with the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Turn one burner off and place your pan on the grill before closing - this creates an "oven" effect. Bake for 15 minutes before turning the pan and topping with remaining cheese. Bake 15 more minutes or until golden and bubbly before removing from the grill carefully.
  5. Allow to sit 10-15 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

-Use a BBQ sauce that isn't super sweet. Avoid ones with brown sugar or honey in the name. The cream cheese will tone down the heat but not the sweet. -The sweeter your sauce the more Tabasco you'll want to use to offset it. Start with 3-5 dashes and then taste. -If using frozen yeast rolls, lay in the pan and allow to rise as per the instructions before adding the dip.
