A good friend brought this over when our second son was born, so we usually have this for his birthday dinner (using turkey, too--he was born on Thanksgiving!). Preparation includes boiling the eggs and cooking the chicken and rice--unless you use leftovers from another prep.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350; grease sides of a 13x9 pan.
  2. In a very large bowl, mix chicken, rice, celery, eggs, onions and nuts.
  3. In another (smaller) bowl, mix mayonnaise, juice and soups until smooth; add to chicken mixture and stir to coat well; dump into prepared pan, smoothing out the top; sprinkle chow mein noodles over the pan.
  4. Bake for 30-45 minutes (noodles will be dark brown and crispy).
  5. LEFTOVERS: The chow mein noodles get soggy when stored in the fridge, so put noodles on only half of the casserole and then when reheating, add noodles on that side, too.
