Servings: 6 people
  • 2 cups cooked chicken diced or 3-12.5-ounce cans of canned chicken or equal amount of reconstituted freeze-dried chicken
  • 3 -4 cups cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion or equal amount of freeze-dried onion
  • 1 cup celery or equal amount of freeze-dried celery
  • 1 can of sliced chestnuts
  • 2 cans of cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup mayonnaise sounds weird, huh?
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups sliced almonds one cup for the top
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and scoop the ingredients into a greased 9 by 13-inch pan. Do not cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Sprinkle the last cup of almonds on the top of the casserole the last 5 minutes of baking. Serves 6-8 people. The mayonnaise sounds weird but I must say this is truly one of my all time favorite casseroles.
