Recently we had some friends invite us out for Thai food. Y’all, John and I have had horrific Thai experiences in the past. I won’t go into detail but we are scarred for life.

It’s so hard for me to pass up a night with friends. I’m an extroverted introvert. Or vice versa. I love being alone but I get energy from interacting with people.

So when someone invites me out and I know there’s gonna be good conversation (yes, you Claire)…I can’t pass it up. But I did. And it killed me.

I said, “Catch you next time,” because I didn’t want them to change their plans for us.

I was really stretching myself when I made this Thai Coconut Chicken but the difference is that I made it in MY kitchen where I could control what I was eating.

So why this Sesame Chicken Dip? I loved it. Cream cheese topped with sweet and sour sauce, green onions, spinach, Asian flavored chicken…it just works.

It tastes fresh and really can’t be considered cooking because it’s more layering. The sesame oil is a must for that distinctive Asian taste.

Ingredients

  • 2
    tablespoons
    reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4
    teaspoons
    sesame oil
    (no substitutions)
  • 2
    garlic cloves
    minced
  • 4
    cups
    shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 3
    (8 ounce) packages
    reduced-fat cream cheese
    (see note)
  • 1
    (10 ounce) jar
    sweet-and-sour sauce
  • 2
    cups
    chopped fresh baby spinach
  • 1
    cup
    thinly sliced green onions
    about 8
  • 1/2
    cup
    chopped salted peanuts
  • Sesame rice crackers
    (must use these)

Instructions

  1. Mix soy sauce, sesame oil and garlic; toss with chicken. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hour.

  2. Spread the cream cheese onto a large serving plate. You want a fairly thin layer so that the toppings to cream cheese has a good ratio. Top the cream cheese with sweet-and-sour-sauce, spinach and chicken. Sprinkle with green onions and peanuts. Refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours. Serve with rice crackers.

Recipe Notes

I’m usually all about using full fat cream cheese but the reduced fat is a little softer which works better for dipping.

This makes a ton! Half it for a smaller group.
