Chicken Spread

I am hosting this month’s neighborhood girls’ night and have turned it into a spa margarita party! My sister is a consultant for an at-home spa company and I took the opportunity to invite the neighborhood girls over for a night of margaritas and pampering.

I made a chicken spread tonight and popped it in the fridge for tomorrow.

This chicken spread literally takes 5 minutes to throw together (now that I’m thinking about it, I didn’t really need to make it ahead… oh well, it’s the planner in me!). It’s a recipe that I received from my mom and one that is always popular at parties. I have received many requests for the recipe!

Chicken Spread (from my mom)

8-oz. cream cheese
Small onion, finely chopped
Small can (4.25-oz) canned chicken
1 T. mayonnaise
1 T. soy sauce

Blend all ingredients together with a hand mixer until creamy and combined.

Serve with your favorite crackers (I am partial to Ritz).

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! I used it Superbowl nite and it was a hit esp. with the ladies! They could not get enough of it! In the interest of saving calories in the face of all the other goodies there were to eat, I did use a lite cream cheese and it did not hurt the flavor one bit. I also added some chopped parsley for color, grated the onion (so it would blend in a bit better) and served with reduced fat wheat thins.

    This one’s a keeper! THanks again!

    This looks delish! I have absolute trust in your recipes, Michelle, but I’m a bit hesitant about the soy sauce. A couple of people in our household are beyond “picky” and I’m concerned that the soy sauce flavor might be a bit strong for them. Is it very pronounced, or does it just enhance the overall flavor?


  10. Michelle on June 6, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Hi Patricia, The soy sauce really just blends into the rest of the flavors and doesn’t stand out or is overpowering. If you’re worried, you could always start with 1 teaspoon and if they don’t notice, work up to 1 tablespoon ;-) I hope that helps!

    How many does this serve?

      Hi Sarah, I would say that it serves about 6 people.

    I saw this recipe on Pinterest, and I thought it sounded good and easy. I made it this afternoon for a snack, and we all loved it! We had it with Ritz like you suggested, and the kids just ate it up! Thanks for the recipe!

    I have a really old recipe very similar to this. My recipe uses sour cream instead of mayo, worchestire sauce instead of soy, also has chives in it. Then, form it into a ball and roll in chopped nuts. I serve it with cocktail rye and pumpernickel breads.

    I made this yesterday. A bit skeptical about canned chicken. It turned out great. Everyone loved it.

    I made this for our Super Bowl party and it was nearly gone before I got a chance to sit down and have any myself! It was great with Ritz crackers and pretzels. I used lower fat mayo and cream cheese. I never know about the size of onions, so I just used two handfuls of chopped onion and called it good. Very tasty and easy!
