Jenny's Famous Chicken Dip

Ever since I've known Jenny, her recipe for Chicken Dip has been something she's been known for (other than being an awesome friend and always bringing me soup/flowers/etc. after my break ups).

Finally (it only took me 7 years), I decided to make Jenny's Famous Chicken Dip over the weekend: and I must admit, I think Jenny would be proud of my results :) Too bad she's all the way in NYC.

Ingredients
1 cup mayo (Jenny recommended light, but I used regular)
1 cup salsa
1-2 chicken breasts, poached and shredded
zest and juice from 1 lime
chili powder to taste
1/2-1 cup red pepper, diced
1-1 1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped

Directions
1. Mix ingredients, refrigerate for a few hours, and enjoy! (I was tempted to eat the dip right after making it, but keeping it in the refrigerator really helped the flavors to mingle together.)
2. Serve with any kind of chips. (Jenny recommended the "hint of lime" and "scoops" varieties from Tostitos)



I liked this dip so much I had it for breakfast yesterday and will have it for lunch today. This is a great dish to bring for parties!

The lime juice in this sounds like a good add.

THis is a good use for the salsa sitting in my cabinet. Dont remember what I bought it for anymore ;). Looking forward to trying this out.

sarah is peeved cause she was the original finder of the recipe at a picnic in college. I, however, brought the joy of chicken dip to BLS and DC. I get credit. HA.

Jennifer, no one thinks you're funny enough to make something that ugly and give it such an unappealing name. It's mine and you know it. It's the one think I know how to make aside from cereal.

That looks so yummy! Do you think it would be as good without the cheese though?

Chef Fresco said...
