Italian Chicken Dip

Cathie Valentine


I love chicken, cream cheese, cheese and dips. I came up with this recipe when thinking about an upcoming party I was hosting. I always like to serve a new dip. This dip was a huge success.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This scrumptious dip is creamy and hearty. The Italian seasonings mixed with the tangy dressing is soaked up by the chicken and makes this dip delicious. The cream cheese and mozzarella cheese melted together with the chicken is really what pulls this dip together. Set this hot dip out with some tortilla chips or even crusty bread slices and watch it disappear. Depending on how you serve it, you can use it for a casual evening with friends or for a holiday party. The Test Kitchen
