Miss Daisy's Hot Baked Chicken Salad

Total Time

There are probably a thousand different ways to make a hot chicken salad casserole, but this is, in my opinion, one of the tastiest and simplest. This recipe comes from "Miss Daisy" King, a Nashville cooking legend who made this recipe and many others famous at her "Miss Daisy's Tearoom" in Franklin, Tennessee. I like to serve this for supper with fresh fruit, hot rolls and lemon icebox pie for dessert.

Wow this was good! I had a hankering for this since I had not had it in years. The only changes I made were that I used slivered almonds instead of pecans and I left out the potato chips. I served this as sandwiches to make it more substantial. Definitely as good as I remembered it!

This is the first time I've made a hot chicken salad and it just wasn't for us. Something about the warm mayo flavor gave it a unsettling taste--it could just be our preferences though

I was looking for a quick Comfort Food meal and this fit the bill nicely. I followed the recipe as is using canned Chicken. It was quick and easy and I thank you for sharing it. This is even a dish that kids would probably like.
