Sesame Chicken Dip

I can't tell you how many times I'm asked to bring this easy dip to holidays, birthday parties or girls' weekend getaways. It's fresh and light, and it has the Asian flavors that make it stand out. The rice crackers are a must! —Dawn Schutte, Sheboygan, Wisconsin

    Can this be prepared the night before and left in the refrigerator?

    I made this tonight for my hubby and a friend to test the recipe for a potluck at work tomorrow. It came out great! I didn't have time to chill it for as long as the recipe states, yet it was still delicious. As some others have suggested, I used (less) whipped cream cheese and added shredded carrots. I also added some hoisin and Sriracha sauce to the sweet and sour to add some more flavor and kick. I'm not a huge fan of raw spinach either, so I used a mix of arugula, spinach and raddichio. Two thumbs up ??

    I have brought this to a couple of parties and it was gone in a flash. I also subbed out the sweet and sour sauce for Thai Chili Sauce. My keto friends love it and I make cheese crisps to replace the crackers for them.

    Super delicious dip! Agree it makes a lot, but made two smaller dishes. Was good to put out a fresh batch. I omitted the peanuts and added 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger with the garlic mixture.

    Made as written, brought it to Christmas, everyone loved it. It does make a lot, used a lasagna pan to make it. Another reviewer suggested using Thai sweet chili sauce instead, might try that as another option, but it's delicious as is!

    This is delicious, I've been making it for years. It always gets gobbled right up. Always get asked for the recipe. Sesame rice crackers are a must with this.

    This is so good! I added shredded carrots to it, and cut way down on the cream cheese (just one 8 oz package). Everyone started scooping it onto their plates and just eating it with a fork. It was that good! It would make a nice filling for a sandwich, too.
