Hot Chicken Casserole

Rating: Unrated
A warm, flavor-filled dish that can be prepared far in advance. A good pick for large groups, or small dish that's not too heavy of a dinner. It can also be varied in several ways. This dish does not need to be cooked and can be served cold.

Water Chestnut Dip

Rating: Unrated
Spicy (but not too hot!), crunchy, flavorful dip. Tastes delicious on buttery, round crackers or finger sandwiches. The longer it is allowed to marinate, the better it tastes.

Best Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

This is the way my mother made them when I was growing up. And they were always a treat. The sauce is from another recipe on here but I found that it perfectly balances out the saltiness of the bacon and soy sauce.
