I’m SO DANG EXCITED about these SLOW COOKER ROTEL DIP CHICKEN SANDWICHES! It’s an idea that popped into my head one day when I was dreaming about cheese (that’s very typical for me), which led me to think about how much I love Rotel Dip (Rotel melted together with Velveeta), which led me to think about HOW CAN I EAT THIS AS AN ENTIRE MEAL, which led me to this. These Rotel Dip Chicken Sandwiches are made in a crockpot, incredibly easy, and are sure to be a family favorite. They’re perfect for every day meals, but also perfect for holiday parties or THE SUPER BOWL! It will be here before we know it and we better be ready! I plan to have both cheese dip and these sandwiches. Can you blame me?

These sandwiches are everything that you already love about classic rotel dip. Super cheesy, creamy, and just the right amount of spice. Those flavors lend themselves so perfectly to chicken. To say these sandwiches are crave-worthy are an understatement. And anything made in a slow cooker is an automatic step up in my opinion. I mean just look at all that cheese!

The extra cheese on the top was an add-on and totally optional…but you guys know how I feel about cheese. The more the better. I just can’t say no.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs (4 pieces) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 (8 ounce) blocks (16 ounces total) low fat cream cheese
  • 2 ounces Velveeta cheese
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes
  • Hamburger buns
  • lettuce, onion, and more velveeta for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Spray a slow cooker with nonstick spray.
  2. Add in the chicken, cream cheese, velveeta, and Rotel tomatoes into the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours or until the chicken is fully cooked through. Stir ingredients occasionally while cooking.
  4. Once chicken is cooked through, remove just the chicken from slow cooker and shred using two forks. Place the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker with the sauce and stir to fully coat/combine.
  5. Place the slow cooker on warm until ready to assemble your sandwiches.
  6. NOTE: If using more velveeta as garnish, I've found the best way to heat it up is 2 ounces at a time with 2 tablespoons milk, heated in the microwave one minute at a time until fully melted and creamy.
  7. Assemble your sandwiches by using a slotted spoon to remove chicken from slow cooker, placing on a bottom bun. Top with lettuce and red onion and more velveeta if desired (see note above)
  8. Enjoy!

Recipe looks yummy! Is that 16 oz TOTAL cream cheese or 2 blocks of 16 oz each? And only 2 oz Total Velveeta per 1 can Rotel? That just doesn't seem like much Velveeta in comparison to how much is used when making only the Rotel dip recipe. I really want to try this soon. Thanks for your awesome recipes.😊

    16 ounces total of cream cheese. You could cut some of the cream cheese and add more velveeta, but I thought this was enough cheese for the chicken. It's less than when you make the dip, but the cream cheese balances it out a bit. Hope you LOVE the recipe, it's one of our new favorites! Thanks so much for saying hi :)
Amanda
Is there anything you could substitute for Velveeta? We're not big fans of it, but these look delicious.
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Amanda, you could use shredded cheese of your choice. The consistency would be slightly different but i do think it would work. Hope you love the recipe!
Sara
Any ideas on other ways to serve this besides on hamburger buns, this sounds amazing.
    Becky Hardin
    You could serve it in taco shells! Or on chips as nachos. Delicious whichever way you eat it :)

    Hi Annie- I don't currently have an app/plugin that calculates nutritional info. I have heard my fitness pal is a good one for individual use but isn't yet blog friendly. Hope that helps!

Use only 2 ounces of velveeta cheese for the whole recipe?
    Becky Hardin
    The velveeta mixed with the cream cheese was enough cheese for us, and then we put extra velveeta on top as a garnish. You could add a bit more and take out some of the cream cheese if you prefer that! Enjoy :)

Can I use bone in chicken breasts?
    Becky Hardin
    Since the chicken cooks in the slow cooker and then you just shred, boneless is much easier. Then you don't have to worry about the bones when shredding and tossing back into the slow cooker. The chicken will cook approximately the same, its just less of a headache. Whichever you prefer :)

Hey Becky, Making this tomorrow, but I had a question: What size can of Rotel do you use? I picked up a 10oz can and just realized that might not be enough? Thanks, -Adam
