I realized that some of you may be just like me and prefer to let someone else do the cooking. However, there are times when it becomes NECESSARY to prepare a meal and these are some of my go recipes.

Today I’m sharing how to make this delicious Easy Hot Chicken Salad Recipe. This is a recipe that was given to me at a Church fund raiser over 30 years ago. Once I tasted this dish, I had to have the recipe and I’ve been making it ever since.

First, you want to cook and chop your chicken breast. You may also use rotisserie breast or canned chicken breast. I have used each with great results when preparing the Hot Chicken Salad Recipe. Next, mix all your ingredients together except the potato chips and cheese.

This is the easiest recipe to make for a ladies luncheon.
So easy to mix everything together in a large mixing bowl.
You can also substitute the almonds with water chestnuts if you prefer or due to allergies.

Place in Baking Dish

Easy to make and delicious.

All you need is a lightly greased square baking dish to transfer all your mixed ingredients into. To finish, top with crushed potato chips and shredded cheese of your choice. Today I’m using Jalapeno flavored potato chips and sharp shredded cheese.

Easy Bake

Next bake the hot chicken salad in a oven heated to 450 degrees for approximately 10-15 minutes. The ingredients should be thoroughly hot, but not overcooked.

Oops! Be sure to watch closely because I let the potato chips get a little burnt. This always happens when I want to share a photo of my recipes. LOL
