Dipping into Dairy Free Savory Spinach Artichoke Dip with Chicken
This dip couldn’t be easier. It’s truly a mix it and bake it creation. I am going to give you tips to set you up for not just success, but also a couple ideas on what to do with your leftover dip…if you have any!
First, you want to make sure that your canned artichokes are well drained and patted dry. We want to keep this dip completely luscious and not water it down.
Next up, let your Dairy Free cream cheese sit out and come to room temperature. This will make it easy to quickly stir everything together.
Because this dip is all about texture, keep everything about the same size. When you go in for that dip you want to have artichoke, spinach, onion, and chicken on every chop.
Last, but such a fun idea if you have leftovers…use this dip to top your favorite chicken burger recipe, or even a flatbread.
