Wilma on Wednesday, ummm Thursday

Wilma makes a Hot Chicken Salad

This particular dish is a bit confusing to me. Is it a salad? Is it a casserole? What's the difference? I'll give you the details, and you can decide.

2 cups of cooked, shredded chicken I roasted 2 bone-in chicken breasts.
3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup of chopped celery
2 t minced onions I used more
1/2 cup chopped or slivered almonds I used a pre-slivered package that claimed to have about 1/3 cup
1 t lemon juice
1 cup crushed potato chips
3/4 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together (except potato chips) and top with crushed potato chips. Bake at 350 deg. F for 45-60 minutes.

Serves 4-6

So, there it is in the picture with a crescent roll and a jello salad that Wilma will be sharing with you next week. The general consensus of the family is casserole, and the whole thing looks a lot like a "ladies who lunch" menu. Not my favorite, but not bad either.

In other news, I've asked my mom for some more pictures of Wilma, preferably pre-1960. She's a little confused about the whole blog thing in the first place, but we'll see what she comes up with.


  1. Aren't salads supposed to be cold or at most lukewarm? What I always wonder about - why do so many American casserole recipes call for crushed potato chips on top? Your recipes always have me running to the kitchen for food - even if I only ate a short while ago!
