SESAME CHICKEN DIP — Cream cheese, seasoned chicken, sweet and sour sauce, fresh greens and peanuts are layered together and served with rice crackers in this unique and delicious dip that’s always a hit at parties and potlucks.
It might seem like a strange list of ingredients, but when you layer all the ingredients and let the flavors get acquainted for a few hours in the refrigerator, then serve it with crispy rice crackers, the results are outstanding.
I also like to cut won-tons into triangles, brush them vegetable oil, sprinkle them with salt, then crisp them up in the oven. They make the perfect “chips” for serving with this Asian-inspired dip.
Not only is this dip unique and delicious, with the help of a supermarket rotisserie chicken and prepared sweet and sour sauce, it comes together in almost no time!
I really love that this dip is perfect for almost any occasion, celebration or holiday. Whether it’s a winter holiday, birthday party, spring potluck or tailgating in the fall, this savory dip is always one of the first things to disappear.
I first served this dip as an appetizer on Christmas Eve and we all loved it. And since it needs to sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving, it can be made ahead–always a bonus when you’re entertaining or party planning.
I also feel a little less guilty serving this dip because of the spinach. And you can definitely use low-fat cream cheese in this recipe too!
And since most people will have never had anything like this Sesame Chicken Dip, don’t be surprised if you get lots of requests for the recipe!
