Day 296: Cheesy Chicken Artichoke Dip

Yield: 1 9 inch craft
Time (Start to Finish): 45 min

¾ cup parmesan cheese
1/3 cup half and half
2/3 cup mayo
2 tsp red pepper flakes
3 Tbsp green chilies
1 14 oz can marinated artichoke hearts
4 chicken strips
½ cup asiago cheese
salt and pepper


1. Cook chicken strips however you like, I boiled mine in chicken broth, and then cut it up into bite size pieces
2. Preheat oven to 350F
3. In a bowl, combine the parm cheese, mayo, half and half, red pepper and chilies
4. Cut up the artichokes to equal the size of the chicken, and add it all to the bowl
5. Stir to combine
6. Add about ¼ of the asiago and stir
7. You can add salt and pepper at this point if you like
8. Pour mixture into your container and cover the top with the rest of the cheese
9. Bake until the top browns
10. Make toasts, or just serve with chips!

Notes: SO GOOD! I made this while we watched the Lost finale, chopping things in front of the tv, and running into the kitchen during commercials. You can for sure add more cheese if you like, and spinach if you want. Most people taste it and it is a little different than they expect, and that is because it has no spinach. Why? I forgot to buy it and could not miss Lost. It is best hot, and you can mess with it easily. It got eaten up quick for sure. It is not the healthiest for you, so sorry about that, but sometimes bad is good! It is quick to make, and not much labor, so try it out! You can even make it, not cook it, take it to a party, and throw it in the oven.
