Had my first holiday open house yesterday, and I always like to make tasty finger foods to put on the sideboards. I put this simple dip together out of some rotisserie chickens I had made, and it was so popular, I thought it needed posting. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen. Happy Holidays.
