Ingredients
  • 5 cups of roasted, shredded chicken (I buy a pre-cooked chicken from the store to use but feel free to make your own.)
  • 12 oz. of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 4 Tbsp. of butter, melted
  • ½ medium white onion
  • 1 cup of parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup of mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp. of freshly chopped basil
  • 3 Tbsp. of green onions (split by white bottoms and green tops)
  • 2 Tbsp. of Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. of olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. of salt
  • Additional salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Parsley, additional basil and cracked pepper to top
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Heat olive oil in a pan on the stove. Once it is hot add you garlic and onion. Sauté until soft and translucent.
  3. Combine your garlic and onion mix with your cream cheese, milk, chicken brother, 2 Tbsp. of basil, Italian Seasoning, mozzarella cheese, ½ cup of parmesan cheese and salt. Mix well.
  4. Add your chicken and mix.
  5. Dump everything into a baking dish and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes.
  6. Pull out and top with Parmesan cheese, tomatoes, a sprinkle of pepper, white parts of green onions and last 2 Tbsp. of basil. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  7. Finish off in the broiler for two minutes. Watch this though. My broiler is on the top of my oven so I placed the rack in the center of the oven so it didn’t overcook the top.
  8. Serve immediately with bread, garlic toast or even chips. I personally like it with chips. My husband likes it with the garlic bread. Top with the green part of the green onion, additional basil and parsley.
