I've always doubled this recipe since our family of five loves it so much. I use chopped or sliced almonds.

A very good recipe. It takes a little more time to gather all the ingredients but once you have them it is very easy to make. It's great as a side to dinner or can even be dinner itself. Read More

I thought it was so-so. But being a single mom of 5 not one of my kids wanted a second bite so it's not worth me making it again. I thought I had them with the chips on top but no way. Read More

This casserole needed a little more zing so I added 1 more TBS. lemon juice. I also dusted the top with more sliced almonds. It made it more appetizing than crushed chips. Read More

My mother made something very similar except I remember hers included some poultry seasoning. My version turned out quite good considering all of the substitutions I made - a little bit of this and a little bit of that to be cleaned out of my refrigerator. I used deli mesquite chicken roasted red peppers chopped artichoke hearts green onions and cashews folded in the mayo/lemon juice mixture and topped with crushed potato chips & cheddar/mozzarella cheese.

This was good - well-received. I wouldn't say I was blown away however. I roasted the chicken first with my standard method: olive oil salt white pepper and celery salt. I doubled the reipce and used slivered almonds instead of salted. Also an orange pepper for color instead of green. It is a good base recipe to use and tweak. Read More

I added some red pepper flakes to add a little kick (maybe 2 tsp.) The kids did not like this dinner but my husband and I loved it. Thanks! Read More
