I made this once for a pot luck at work and I am now required to make it for birthdays, holidays and any other occasion. Definitely need at least 2 cans of chicken (or 1 big can). I prefer to add some seasonings. Adding some black pepper, garlic powder and/or season-all adds some kick. Old Bay is a good add in as well.

This was a good dip, but not the best I've ever had. It was a little too close to tuna, but certainly spread well and was delicious altogether with crackers. We didn't eat the whole bowl, but the party enjoyed it.

This is the BEST chicken dip I have ever tasted. I've used this recipe several times since I found it.

Since every review kept on saying it needed more chicken- well I added tons more: 3- 12.5oz cans of chicken chunks 2 cups of celery 1 cup of onion (I luv onions but my friends & family don't!) These changes made it awesome! Very, very creamy and tasty!! I used it as a spread for canape type sandwiches and everyone loved it!

I tried this recipes at a potluck at work and now I have to bring it every time we have a special occasion at work and everyone wanted the recipes

This recipe was very easy and quick to make. I was a little worried about all of the onions and celery in the recipe, but you couldn't even taste them, the flavors blended so great together. This makes a lot of dip, and is great served with crackers or fritos. Very good and inexpensive to make, put in a nice bowl and people will devour!

Spectacular! Just needs more chicken. I added two cans and will add even more next time.

I have used this recipe for years, but always used it with canned crab meat and cream of mushroom or celery soup. It's delicious that way too. Also my recipe calls for it to be refrigerated in a jello mold. The gelatin makes it possible to unmold on to a plate for a really nice presentation. Always gets raves.
