Hot Chicken Salad

I will admit it.  I love comfort food!  When it is gloomy, cold, or I’ve just had a bad day, I need comfort.  The truth about comfort food is it warms us up and we don’t care about the calories.  I have been making Hot Chicken Salad for about 10 years.  It is the perfect meal for your not so perfect days.
Here’s to comfort food! -AF

Hot Chicken Salad

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 c mayo

1 1/2 c grated cheddar cheese

1 t salt

1 t pepper

4 c chicken, cooked and diced

1 c celery, chopped

1 c onion, chopped

1 c almonds, slivered or sliced

1 (8oz) water chestnut, drained

Chow mein noodles

Mix soup, mayo, cheese, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl.  Add chicken, celery, onions, almonds, and water chestnuts.  Pour into a 2 quart casserole dish.  Top with chow mein noodles.  Cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Plenty of time for you to curl up on the couch before dinner time.  I have served this with white rice.
