Dinner Last Night

I found a recipe on Paula Deen’s website called Hot Chicken Salad. It contained chicken, cheese and smashed up potato chips, among other things. I thought that was a winning combination, so last night I made it for dinner.
The link to the recipe is above, but here is a basic rundown of the ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 cup cooked chicken breast meat, cubed
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup crushed potato chips

After reading the reviews on the Food Network website, I made the following changes; used half the amount of salt and mayonnaise called for, used lightly salted potato chips and added some chopped green onion.

It was delicious. The lemon juice adds quite a zing to it. I’m not crazy about the crunchy celery in a warm dish, but eating leftovers, cold, it was perfect. I might sauté the celery  first, next time. I  am going to toast the almonds first, as well. And I might add some craisins.
