Crunchy Chicken Casserole

John picked this one. Judy (12) made it..... and it was good....

365 Qick, Easy & Inexpensive Dinner Menus
Penny E. Stone
page 132

4 cups of cooked diced chicken/turkey
2 cups diced celery
1 cup slivered almonds
2 tsp lemon juice
1 cup miracle whip (any kind)
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
optional: onions

2 cups shredded cheese
2 cups crushed potato/nacho chips
note: we used doritos

In a large casserole dish,
Combine chicken, celery, onion, almonds and lemon juice.
Add miracle whip and soup.

note: we added penne pasta (approx 3-4 cups cooked pasta) at this time too.

Mix well.
Cover casserole with cheese and chips.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Serve with salad.
Judy commented it was like warm macarronni salad. Which was a pretty accurate description. I enjoyed it, but thought maybe a few diced tomatoes would be nice in it too.

All in all, a success.

"Bon Appetit!"

  1. I really enjoyed this casserole. It definitely was like a warm pasta salad with lovely crunchy bits and a nice sauce. Judy is a wonderful cook. Thanks so much for inviting me to supper.
