Weeknight Dinners: Hot Chicken Salad Casserole

I'm always looking for easy meals that my family will like.  It's harder than it looks, isn't it?  With three picky kids, it can definitely be challenging. I was thrilled when I came across this Hot Chicken Salad Casserole from Paula Deen.  Who doesn't like a Paula Deen recipe, I say!  I love cold chicken salad in the summer, but now that it's winter and the weather is cold, I always crave a warm, hot meal.  This is the taste of summer chicken salad heated up for winter!  Perfection.

Here is how you make it!

Ingredients

2-cups cooked chicken

1 cup celery, diced

1/2 cups slivered almonds

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. grated onion

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 tbsp. lemon juice

1 cup mayo

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar

Potato Chips, crushed 

Recipe

  1. Mix all ingredients together and place in an ungreased casserole dish.
  2. Top with crushed potato chips.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes

 

I'm honestly not sure how you couldn't like this dish!  Mayo, cheese, potato chips~ yeah, it may not be the healthiest meal you've ever prepared for your family, but pair it with a vegetable or a salad and it will make you feel better.

It's a keeper!  Enjoy!

To life feeling like home!

    oh, this looks so good! I like to make casseroles because they are pretty simple to cook. During the week things get hectic and I need simple.

    It looks and sounds so delicious. I must give it a try. Do you think I could use half mayonnaise and half plain yogurt to cut down on the some of the fat? It looks so simple to make and I like recipes that have me in and out of the kitchen. This would be perfect for game day (football-Super Bowl) since I don’t have to be in the kitchen cooking and this would be a hearty, full meal dish. Perhaps it could be served over rice when serving to larger crowds? Thank you for sharing a tasty recipe. I can’t wait to make it.

  4. Sounds good! Thanks for sharing on the What’s for Dinner link up!
