Super Simple Cheesy Chicken Artichoke Dip

Super Simple Cheesy Chicken Artichoke Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

There are times when you need a little simplicity. I’ve been having that sort of life for the past several weeks as we try to squeeze in appointments, last-minute summer vacations, and work in the midst of getting the kids ready for high school and college. This dip was one of those … I found myself rushing into the house the other day with no time to cook, yet I was hungry! I needed something to munch on quickly and I was craving cheese.

I looked in the fridge to see what I could find. Half of a leftover chicken breast and a half package of white Mexican dipping cheese … a half bottle of white wine. Hmmm, what could I make with that? Rummaging through the cupboard produced a jar of artichoke hearts. I raided my little herb garden in post and tada! A beautifully simple, delicious dip that satisfied my hunger and my cheese craving all in one fell swoop.

Total Time: 25 minutes

Super Simple Cheesy Chicken Artichoke Dip

Ingredients

  • Half of a cooked chicken breast, chopped or shredded (or more, if you like)
  • 2 - 3 cloves of garlic, peeled & chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chopped marinated artichokes
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons of the artichoke marinade
  • 1/4 cup shredded asiago cheese
  • 6 oz. white Mexican (or American) dipping cheese, cut into cubes
  • About 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (I used rosemary, thyme, oregano, and basil)

Instructions

  1. Stir together all ingredients except the herbs in a small saucepan
  2. Cover and heat on medium low heat until everything is melted and wonderfully blended, about 15 - 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Stir in the herbs, garnish with a few fresh herbs and serve hot with chips, crackers, little toasts or chunks of toasted ciabatta.

Notes

You can make this cheesy dip in a mini-crockpot too ... just put all the ingredients except the herbs into a little crock, cover and cook till the cheese is melted, stopping to stir a couple times, then stir in the herbs and keep it warm on low heat to serve.
