Chicken Cheese Spread
When I cook chicken I always cook a little extra to use in making chicken salad. This time I wanted to try something different so I came up with my Chicken Cheese Spread. These are the ingredients I used.
Shredded cheddar cheese
Mrs. Dash salt free seasoning
I put the chicken, about 1 1/2 cups chopped, in a food processor and pulsed it until it was ground. I added about 1/4 cup of sour cream and 3 Laughing Cow pats and gave it a taste. It needed something so I added about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and enough mayo to make it smooth and spreadable but not thin. Still needed something. That's when I started adding the Mrs. Dash. I would give it a shake, mix and taste until I had added about 1/2 tsp. PERFECT! My consistency came out thick enough to form into a ball if I wanted but thin enough to spread on a cracker.
Comment: You can add any seasoning you might like but I suggest you put it all together as I did, tasting as I went along until I had the flavor that fit my taste. Apparently it fit a couple of my food testers taste too because the loved it. If you want to get fancy and take this to a party you could roll it in chopped nuts, chopped parsley, and maybe even chopped chives. Just Think With Your Taste Buds to create your own blend.
