Made this with the chicken of a whole rotisserie chicken, sharp cheddar cheese, Blue Plate mayo, salt and pepper and regular potato chips. I tried to use just the white meat of the chicken, but it wasn't enough, so I used all the meat of the chicken. It didn't fill up the 13x9 dish, but it was enough for the dinner party I went to. Everyone loved it and said they wanted the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cut the recipe in half, as we are a small family of 3. It was delicious. I will definitely make again espcecially when I have guests. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful, easy recipe. Great to cook for a crowd. I will definitely be making this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It tasted good but I thought it was way to greasey. When you cook mayonaise it turns to a liquid. I'll never make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My kids gobble it up! However we substituted almonds for onions due to nut allergy and we are going to try fried onions instead of chips. We serve this with slices of tomatoes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it! I was a bit skeptical about this recipe at first and went for something a bit more simple used leftover chicken, did not cube it and only applied a small squeeze of lime, mayo, mozzarella, lays chips and to season on top of it all some crushed pepper came out delicious!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is fantastic! I did variate some from the recipe. I omitted the salt, replaced celery with red onion (not a fan of celery chose the fried onion topping in place of chips and added a dollop of sour cream to the mix. The chicken I used was leftover KFC chicken strips which worked great as they are already seasoned with a nice crunchy breading. We thought we'd be munching on this with crackers and it would make a great appetizer but we ended up eating it like a casserole, savoring every bite. Highly recommend this dish. Thanks Paula for another great recipe!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe and have been making it for 30+ years! I think it was a originally a Betty Crocker or Better Homes recipe. Excellent served with fresh fruit and croissants. Definitely very rich. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good but I used rotisserie chicken and it was very greasy. I also left the potato chips off. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Too tangy for us. I do like the idea of having a hot meal with leftovers to use for cold sandwiches the next day, though, so if I try it again I will cut back on the lemon juice and add a sweet element like maybe a little apple or orange. item not reviewed by moderator and published
