Here’s a simple menu when you are having
friends over for lunch.
I made it today for the two of us
because I had just enough chicken left over
from our roast chicken dinner the other
night. Actually, it wasn’t quite the 2 C needed
so I cut back slightly on the other ingredients.
You can tweak it when you need to.
I hadn’t planned it so I was out of slivered
almonds and used chopped pecans instead. This
recipe is good and accommodating. Like if you
don’t have the dried minced onion you can
just mince about 2T fresh. Less pepper? OK.
More mayo? OK. Just don’t leave out
the lemon juice, fresh or bottled is fine.
Pile the chicken salad in a small baking dish.
A pie pan would work fine. Top with the cheese
and chips; bake for 20 minutes until golden.
