My Creamy Chicken Spread is excellent for snacking! This recipe is a little different than the majority of my recipes. This fun little spread is definitely savory as a chicken spread should be,  not sweet.

The thing I find interesting about this recipe is that it’s the type of food that keeps you coming back for more. Every time I have this spread I do the same thing.

I spread some on 2 or 3 crackers, then I walk away. But after a few minutes I find myself going back for more. My Creamy Chicken Spread is just one of those things you will probably enjoy eating, just a little at a time!

This Creamy Chicken Spread could also be used as a sandwich spread, if you like. :)

I absolutely LOVE the Swanson brand chunk canned chicken! So that’s what I used in this recipe. This White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast is a great source of low-fat protein  and it’s certified by the American Heart Association!

No, I am not associated with them in any way. I just really like that there are no preservatives! Of course if you have leftover rotisserie chicken that would be great too.

Freshly chopped green onions on top always add a nice touch. But if you don’t like them, leave them off!

This Creamy Chicken Spread is great with any cracker, but a few of my favorites with this spread are Ritz crackers and Triscuits.

1 can (12.5 oz.) White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast (I like Swanson, but any brand will work)

1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup olive oil mayonnaise, or any variety

2 green onions, chopped

1/2 – 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor, process until celery is coarsely chopped. Or once cream cheese has softened, stir ingredients together by with a heavy spoon.
