Melissa's Chicken Dip

READY IN: 8hrs 5mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

As you can see they don't come any easier than this and most cooks have all the ingredients in their pantry or refrigerator at all times. I call it Melissa's Chicken Dip because I got it from my friend, Melissa. I don't really know the proper name. The best thing about this recipe is that it can be changed around and made into a chicken cheese ball by cutting the sour cream or mayo in half, refrigerating until set and formed into a ball and rolled in finely ground pecans, paprika, crushed red peppers, etc. Anytime I take this to an occasion, I end up having to repeat the recipe several times. The cook time listed is the time for refrigeration.

This was a great dip!! I picked this recipe from one of my (photo swap 6) team members and so glad I picked this one. I made this while at the lake over the weekend and shared it with our friends and WOW!! was it ever a big hit. Everyone just loved it! The longer it sits in the ref. the better it gets too. YUM! I think the next time I make this I am going to add some green onions and green or red peppers to kick it up a knotch or two! Thanks so much for sharing your friends recipe. Its awesome!!
