Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine chicken, cream cheese, barbecue sauce, sour cream and cheddar cheese in a medium bowl. Stir to mix well. Season with salt, pepper and Creole seasoning, and stir to combine. Transfer to a baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble. Garnish with chopped chives. Serve warm.
