Here is another delicious recipe for Christmas or New Year’s parties. Or you could make it ahead and have it ready for a New Year’s Day brunch. I love this recipe from Gooseberry Patch’s “Hometown Christmas.”
Italian Chicken Spread
This makes a yummy appetizer or luncheon spread.
13 oz can chicken, drained or 1 1/2 c. cooked chicken
1/3 c. mayonnaise
1/3 c. Italian salad dressing
1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 t. Italian seasoning
crackers or lightly toasted Italian bread slices
Place chicken in a bowl; fake or shred finely. Add remaining ingredients except cracker or bread; stir well to combine. Cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours to allow flavors to blend. Serve at room temperature, or bake at 350 degress until hot and bubbly. Serve with crackers or bread. Makes 2-1/2 cups.Patrice Lindsey
This spread is delicious. The taste will vary depending up what type of salad dressing you use. The batch made with dressing from a local Italian restaurant was on the zesty side.
While the batch made with Wishbone’s House Italian was not as heavily seasoned. I used Saltine crackers but an Italian flavored cracker would pair nicely with this dip.
If however, you use a bolder Italian dressing, plain crackers or bread would be best so your taste buds are not overwhelmed with spices.
