This 10-minute dip’s got ooey-gooey game! Each bite delivers flavourful, shredded chicken in a creamy, spiced tomato sauce.
1⁄2 lb (225 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs
1 block (8 oz/250 g) light cream cheese, softened
3⁄4 cup crushed tomatoes
Toppings (optional): crumbled feta cheese, Za’atar Seasoning or Italian Seasoning
- Coat chicken with Za’atar or Italian Seasoning; place in Rectangular Steamer. Cover and microwave on high 4 min. Let rest 1 min before removing lid. Dice or shred.
- Meanwhile, in small casserole dish or 4-cup, microwave-safe bowl, beat cream cheese with crushed tomatoes. Stir in Butter Chicken Seasoning until combined. Carefully fold in chicken.
- Microwave, uncovered, on high 2–3 min, until warm and bubbly, stirring well every 1 min. Or, bake in preheated 375° F oven for 15 min.
- Sprinkle with toppings, if desired, and serve warm. This dip is delicious served with warm pitas for dunking.
1 can (15 oz/425 g) crushed tomatoes is about 2 cups. Wrap and freeze leftovers in small portions; add to soups, stews, or sauces. Or, blend with Italian Seasoning and use as a pizza sauce.
