Layered Asian Spread

This is a yummy and healthy appetizer. Omit the peanuts in case of allergies.

Layered Oriental Spread

¾ cup cooked chopped chicken (Canned white chicken also
½ cup shredded carrots
½ cup chopped peanuts
3 tbs. sliced green onion
1 tbs. chopped fresh parsley
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbs. soy sauce
¼ tsp. ginger
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese softened
1 tbs. milk
1 cup sweet & sour sauce
Dash sesame oil
sesame seeds

  1. Combine chicken, carrots, peanuts, green onion, parsley, garlic, soy sauce, and ginger in medium bowl.
  2. Add a dash of sesame oil and mix well.
  3. Cover and chill for 4-12 hours.
  4. In a seperate bowl, combine cream cheese and milk, mix well.
  5. Spread cheese mixture onto a plate.
  6. Top with chicken mixture and drizzle with sweet & sour sauce.
  7. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top.
  8. Serve with crackers and a spreading knife.
Because of the nature of this dish I recommend serving it on top of a larger platter in order to catch any crumbles. You can even spice it up using a drizzle of hot sauce in place of the sweet and sour.
