Cheesy Chicken Dip (A Continuation of The Worst Housewarming Party Ever)

If you've read this previous post, you know I had a very anticipated and quite disappointing housewarming party. But c'est la vie, what's done is done! Anywhozzle, I made this chicken dip to serve as well. It's one of Michael's favorites, and honestly...just about anyone else who has had it. My mother was given this recipe by an old co-worker, and it's been a family favorite ever since. She now routinely brings it to big get-togethers. Speaking of which, I just returned home from a blissful (yet busy) 5 day visit home in Ohio. Michael's cousin, Jimmy, got married (CONGRATS JIMMY AND DIANA!), and we were visiting for the wedding. And I figured, I might as well make it a little longer of a stay so I can see some people! I haven't been home since Christmas, so it was so nice to see everyone :). As always there were people I didn't get to see, and that's always sad. But on my last day in Ohio, my mom's whole family came together at my Grandma Jo's house for the last Sunday at her pool, and to see me. It was just wonderful. I got to see my cousins, play with their adorable babies (so weird...other than Farrah I'm the next one in line to have a baby! Chill out all, not for a few years.), and just visit with loved ones I don't get to see often enough! Oh yeah, and there was food. I made some amazing cookies. And, my mother made her Cheesy Chicken Dip! As always, it was beloved. And now I shall share it with you:

Cheesy Chicken Dip

Cheesy Chicken Dip
Ingredients:
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (reserve 1/2 to go on the top towards the end of baking)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (the original recipe was 1/4 tsp...but...you know how I love garlic)
  • 2 large cans of chicken-drained, and shredded with a fork
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons finely chopped/minced onions (Michael's tummy doesn't always love onions in stuff, so I omitted them for this particular time I made it. It tasted absolutely fine, made no difference really.)
Preparation:
  • Mix all ingredients together and put in a dish (I find anything around 8" or so will do).
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Remove, add the 1/2 cup cheese you set aside to the top.
  • Bake 5 more minutes.
  • Serve with crackers!

Everyone, tell your family how much you love them. And appreciate them. Because they're more awesome than we tend to realize.
