BBQ Chicken Dip & Pita Chips

I decided to do my bbq as an inside treat tonight and in a light form (well it's light depending on how many you eat).  You can mix it up ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator, take it out, bake for 20 minutes and you're ready to enjoy it.  I also included the simple recipe for baked seasoned pita chips that I made to go along with it.  But you can use your favorite kind of chips to serve with this.






BBQ Chicken Dip

14 oz chicken tenders, braised, seasoned, cooled and shredded
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup apple butter
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Mix together in medium bowl, shredded chicken, cream cheese, apple butter, chili sauce and bbq sauce.  Place in a greased pie pan.  Spread out and top with the cheddar cheese.  Bake for 20 minutes at 350°.




Baked pita chips

4 pita breads
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Italian seasonings

Cut each pita into 6 pieces.  In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and spices.  Place the pita chips on a large baking sheet.  Brush on the olive oil mixture and bake for 20 minutes at 350°.
