I am allergic to all types of fish. So my mom changed her Shrimp Mousse recipe to Chicken Mousse recipe. We have this at Christmas dinner and then the next morning! It is a great recipe and delicious! Everyone eats the Chicken more than the mousse! Enjoy!

How to Make Chicken Mousse


  1. First cook chicken in a pot of salted water or use a chicken bouillon cube. Then purree the chicken or finely dice it.
  2. Melt together cream cheese and tomato soup, whipping with a fork or whisk.
  3. Just cool.
  4. Mix together unflavored gelatine and cold water; mix into mayonnaise.
  5. Using an electric mixer or processor, mix until smooth.
  6. Stir in cooked shredded chicken, chopped celery, and chopped green onions.
  7. Lightly oil a mold; pour mousse mixture in.
  8. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours. Then unmold, using a hot, damp cloth around the mold. This makes it easier to come out whole.
  9. This recipe can be adapted to shrimp. You can use 1 can of tiny shrimps instead of chicken.

    As for the mold it can be metal or silicone. Just use one greased or stick free 6 cup mold.
  10. Place the molded mousse out with crackers or brushetta style bread.
