Ingredients

  • 3 C diced cooked chicken (I use one 16 oz bag of Grilled Chicken Breast Strips from Costco)
  • 1 1/2  C diced celery Feel free to use more or less, depending on how much you love celery
  • 1/2 C chopped almonds I use lightly salted cashew halves and pieces instead
  • 1 T minced onion I use one bunch diced green onions
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp pepper We like pepper so I use more
  • 1 C real mayo
  • 1 1/2 C grated cheddar or cheddar/jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 C crushed potato chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine first six ingredients in a mixing bowl:
  • Add the mayo and place in baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese and crushed chips.
  • Bake uncovered in oven for 25 minutes or until hot in the middle and slightly bubbly.
  • The secret to making this casserole so delicious is to tweak it so it includes more or less of the above ingredients, based on your personal tastes. I honestly don't measure any of the ingredients, except for the mayo. To make it large enough for the six of us, I made it about 1 1/2 times bigger than usual.
  • A secret I recently learned that makes this Halfway Homemade meal even quicker, is to use my food chopper to crush the potato chips. You'll have as many as you need in less than a minute.

Notes

We used Boulder Canyon Potato Chips in this recipe.
