Here I am sitting 15 years past my senior year in college, and still, every fall, my husband and I get together with our friends during our college’s homecoming game. A lot has changed over the years. Our coolers of tailgate beverages have been replaced with a thermos of coffee, we have traded in our cars for roomier minivans, and our group of 6 couples has grown by 13 kids. Our days of just showing up and finding each other have turned into highly orchestrated plans with coordinating babysitters months in advance. Some things are still the same, though. Whenever our group of friends gets together for tailgating, we laugh, we make fantastic memories, and we always sit and talk to each other over tasty tailgating snacks like chips and dip.
This caramelized onion chicken dip is so good! I was inspired by the buffalo chicken dip that my friend Jeannie always makes when our group gets together, but I added my flavors instead. Caramelized onions, in my opinion, might be the world’s perfect food! Instead of using white onions, I caramelized green onions so I could save time and
achieve a somewhat subdued flavor
Caramelized Onion Chicken Dip
6 green onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
2 cups shredded chicken
8-ounce block of cream cheese
Chop green onions.
- In a pan, over low to medium heat, cook the onions in olive oil until they become slightly brown and caramelized.
- Add garlic to the pan and continue cooking.
- Add shredded chicken to the pan and continue cooking
- Add cream cheese to the pan, let the cream cheese melt and mix it in well.
- Once the dip is done, remove it from heat and serve it immediately.
This can also be stored in the fridge and warmed up later.
