Prepared with poached chicken breasts or your favourite canned, flaked chicken, Deviled Chicken is a wonderful spread on crackers, a great addition to any charcuterie board, or a delicious start to a delightful sandwich.
Add the softened cream cheese to a large bowl. Use a hand-held mixer to beat the cream cheese.
Add in the mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and ground black pepper. Beat to combine.
Next, add in the shredded chicken and the chives. Use a spatula to fold the chicken and chives into the cream cheese mixture.
Serve immediately, or cover and chill for 1 hour. Keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.
If using canned chicken, you will need about 24 ounces or roughly 3 cups. If using poached chicken, two large chicken breasts will yield the perfect amount.Remove the cream cheese from the fridge at least 30 minutes before you start. If your chicken is chilled, remove it from the fridge as well. If you prepared poached chicken, be sure it has cooled and is at room temperature.
