Hot Chicken Salad Casserole

Hot Chicken Salad Casserole  (3 of 3)At one of our girl’s nights recently, my friend Courtney brought this Hot Chicken Salad Casserole and I just loved it and went back for seconds. I asked her for the recipe and she said it was out of our church cookbook, which thankfully I had! There are so many great gems in church cookbooks aren’t there?! So neat to have recipes from so many different women in one spot. I put this on our menu immediately. It was so full of flavor and I was sad when the leftovers were gone! I also think this would make a great regular cold chicken salad recipe also without the cheese & chips on top.

  3. I put my own little twist on this by adding Minced GARLIC, hotsauce and red pepper FLAKES… Absolutely delicious! Also didn’t add chips on top because we have tortilla chips to have the dip with.

  4. Have been making this for YEARs, comes from a betty crocker cook book. Original VERsion has msg in it, stopped adding it YEArs ago. Still use regular mayo though.
