One more chicken recipe....

Happy Thursday to you!  Are you having a good week?

One of the best things I am able to report about the week is the rain!  We have finally had rain!  Our rain gauge measures about an inch and a half since late Tuesday afternoon!  The garden is very happy!  There is still a deficit for average rainfall at this point in the year, but the rain we have just received will definitely be a big help!

Here is one more chicken recipe that I know isn't new to you.  It has been a favorite of mine for many years.  The basic recipe comes from Betty Crocker from the early eighties.

Out of the oven!

2 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 cups thinly sliced celery
1 cup mayonnaise (I actually use less that this amount).
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds (I toasted these in a small skillet on the stove top.)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated onion
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 cup crushed potato chips (I didn't have chips, so used bread crumbs instead).
- Combine all ingredients except cheese and potato chips/crumbs.  Pile into greased baking dish.  Sprinkle with cheese and chips.  Bake at 450 degrees F for10 to 15 minutes, or until bubbly.  Serves 6.  (We find it's possible to enjoy the leftovers unheated!) :-)

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  5. I am glad the rain has found you! We have had almost 6 inches so far this month which is above normal. Makes up for not getting much rain last month.

    The chicken recipe sounds so good!

  6. Thanks for the reminder of this recipe. I used to make it often and we love it. Funny thing...I bought almonds at the grocery this week!

    I will have to make it again. I sure loved it back then.

  8. Seems lovely, but I am trying to become pescetarian.

  9. Yum, Nellie! Perfect for a ladies lunch, or anytime. Glad you are getting much needed rain. We have had our share up here, expecting more tomorrow. xo.

  10. Nellie, This is my all time chicken salad. I put diced water chestnuts in mine too. For another taste, I will use B-B-Q flavored chips. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  11. Oh Gosh Nellie, I haven't seen this recipe in years!!! I most certainly think it should be revived. It's so easy, delicious and economical too!!!
