Cajun Chicken Dip

Cajun Chicken Dip

I don’t feel so bad for admitting my Netflix addiction because I learned that SO many others have the same problem and my only problem with that is that now I have added so many more shows to my list to binge on when Private Practice is over.  Update:  I am now in season 5 and the drama is intensifying and I’m already anticipating a breakdown at the end of the last season.

Help me now!

You know what else I binge on?  Spotify.  When not overdoing it with Netflix, I’m binge-listening to my favorite music.  Lately it’s been (don’t laugh) Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, and the new album from Dierks Bentley.  I have always been a fan…but this new album, oh my gosh.  From top to bottom it is SO good.  Lyrically and musically, I can’t get enough!

Cajun Chicken Dip

Know what else I can’t get enough of?  Appetizersdipshot dips, and now, for Cajun dips.  I made homemade Cajun Seasoning so why not add it to some chicken & cheese for an amazingly spicy, creamy dip?  Yes.  Oh yes.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I would eat snacks all day long rather than have a sit-down meal.  And for those snack-y days, I definitely want this Cajun Chicken Dip!

    We’re redoing a room in our house and my Justin Timberlake Pandora station is my go-to. I definitely need to listen to some Dierks again though. I used to love him, but then I stopped listening to country for awhile. This dip needs to be my best friend. I’m pretty sure we’d be inseparable.

    I binge watch shows too so don’t feel bad! As I type this I’m binge watching Revenge. Why did I never watch this show before, I’ll never know 🙂 Now I’m wishing I could have this dip with me right now as I watch it.

    We are almost the same person. Except I haven’t made it through Private Practice yet! I keep watching it in spurts. Eventually I’ll get there.

    I want large spoonfuls of this dip in my mouth. ASAP.

    Dip sounds great but you don’t say how much lemon juice you used. Thanks

      Hi Pat, sorry about that. I just used a small squeeze from half a lemon..maybe 1-2 teaspoons. Enjoy!
