- 2 chicken breasts, shredded see note
- 1 (8-ounce) brick cream cheese, softened

- If you are shredding your chicken with your mixer (see note) – use the flat beater – shred warm chicken breasts, then add other ingredients and mix.
- If you are adding already shredding chicken, I would mix all the other ingredients first and add the chicken last, so it doesn't get overly shredded.
- Scoop and spread into 2 quart baking dish and top with about 1/4 cup additional cheese, if desired.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
- Garnish with honey, bacon and green onion, if desired.Serve with toasted baguette crostini, chips or veggies.
