I recently went to one of the local eateries to try their new "Hot Chicken Salad". It was so good and I asked for the recipe. I was told it was a TOP secret recipe and I couldn't have it....well, let me tell you...I haven't stopped looking for a recipe that would equal it. Guess WHAT? I found the recipe in a 1950's Vintage 4-H cookbook. I made a few changes and wanted to share, so here goes....

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine chicken, celery, onion, eggs lemon juice, almonds and salt in large mixing bowl.
  2. Add mayonnaise and mix well.
  3. Place in a 13x9-inch square casserole dish and cover top with potato chips.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 400°F.

I was not terribly impressed with this casserole, but my husband thought it was ok--but he said it would have been better if we had eaten it cold as chicken salad sandwiches.
