Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

One of my friends hosted a potluck brunch last weekend. This was originally supposed to be a filling for crescent roll spirals similar to these buffalo chicken spirals I made before. That turned out to be a disaster. I spread the filling onto the crescent roll dough, rolled it up. and it didn’t hold up when I went to slice it into spirals. It probably would have worked if I went with another shape and not a spiral. I think the spiral failed because both the filling and the dough were too warm. So, this became a dip, and a very good one!

I served this with Town House pita chips, but it would also be good with pretty much any cracker or tortilla chips.
