What You Need To Make Green Chile Chicken Stuffed Bread
- large loaf of French bread
- rotisserie chicken
- diced green chiles
- cream cheese
- shredded Colby Jack cheese
- yellow onion
- chicken broth
- salt, pepper, garlic
This is one of those easy dishes that no one can seem to get enough of. The warm cream cheese chicken filling seems to lie somewhere between a hot dip and a spread. And the warm, crusty outside and soft, tender insides of the French bread play the perfect supporting role for both! Plus, using rotisserie chicken is like some kind of genius magic that makes prep quick and clean up a breeze. Forget multiple pots and pans when you’re throwing this together!
I made this the other night for The Engineer. He had carefully planned his day so that he would have his to-do list tidily wrapped up and be ready for kick off of the Cowboy game. His Dallas Cowboys. He’s faithfully watched and rooted since he was 5 and Roger Staubach was leading them across the goal line. We’ve lived through it all- Tommy Landry, Jimmy Johnson, Barry Switzer, Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Deon, Romo. Lord have mercy.
You never know what you might get, so I was going to make sure at least dinner good. We had it with simple Southwestern Chopped Salad. One bite of that warm bread, stuffed with all that goodness, and he was hooked. Who cares what happened with the game (I’m sure he did), the food was a winner!
I made two loaves of this Stuffed Green Chile Chicken bread thinking I might give one a way. But The Engineer devoured all of the first and declared that he wanted to have the second for supper the next day. Which we did. It’s already been requested to make a third appearance, and I’m sure I will oblige. After all, isn’t that what good food is all about?
