Hot Chicken Salad Casserole

Looking for a dish to use up some of those Easter eggs you have still hanging around? This is a good one. I like to make it in the Spring, especially ~ probably just because the name evokes thoughts of Spring picnics and such. I have never included all of the ingredients listed in the recipe, which is something else I like about it ~ you can make it to your own tastes, or include just what you have on hand. I have been making this recipe for many Springs ~ it is found in this cookbook ~

Here is the recipe ~

Hot Chicken Salad Casserole

4 cups cooked, cubed chicken
2 cups cooked rice
1 cup (2 stalks) chopped celery
1/2 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup mayonnaise
10 3/4 oz. can condensed cream of chicken soup
2 oz. jar chopped pimiento, drained
3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
2 Tblsp. chopped green pepper
2 Tblsp. chopped onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tblsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup crushed potato chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl stir together all ingredients except potato chips. Spread into greased 9 X 13 baking pan. Sprinkle with chips. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until heated through.

The basic items in this recipe are the chicken, rice, mayonnaise, soup, salt, lemon juice and chips. All of the other items can be included or left out as you wish. I always include the eggs and almonds in mine, and sometimes some of the vegies if I have them. Because I left out so many vegies in mine this time, I doubled the rice called for. It turned out very yummy. Here are a few pictures I took as I put this together ~
