Miss Daisy's Hot Baked Chicken Salad

"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.

    I have never made hot chicken salad, so perhaps this was a matter of taste, but my husband and I did not care for it. The only change I had made was to omit the pecans, because I do not like them, but other than that, followed recipe exactly. I am glad I had opportunity to try - thank you for posting! :)

    This was pretty good and very easy to make. The only thing I'll do different next time is leave out the salt as it was sorta salty, and I usually have leftover seasoned chicken that I use to make recipes like this.

    I really enjoy this version of the recipe. I sometimes don't add the nuts and add more onions instead. I also use croutons rather than chips.
