This delicious chicken casserole is a favorite of my family and friends. I think it's the combination of flavors in this dish that make it so spectacular. Great served over rice with a nice salad and some good bread.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium casserole dish.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in skillet, and cook 10 minutes, or until juices run clear. Drain, and transfer to the prepared casserole dish. Mix with mayonnaise, water chestnuts, pimentos, almonds, celery seed, and lemon juice. Season with garlic salt to taste. Layer with cheese, and top with French-fried onion rings.
  3. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted and onion rings are lightly browned. If rings start to get too brown, put foil on casserole or lower oven rack. Watch carefully, or onion rings will burn.

I make this recipe for the exact same reason the previous reviewer, Dancing Cook from NC, does! It is my "go-to" recipe for bringing to new mothers, or families in need. However, I substitute corn bread stuffing mixed with melted butter in place of the fried onions and cheddar cheese. Trust me, the dish is still rich and satisfying. Also, I use green peppers and fresh celery instead of pimento and celery seed simply because I tend to have these ingredients on hand. Everyone who I have made this recipe for loves it and is very appreciative!

I have used this recipe for YEARS without the onion rings, to bring to sick or injured neighbors or new moms. I make several at a time without the cheese and freeze them in those new disposable plastic dishes that can go from freeser to oven (read the instructions on the plastic ware --preheating is REQUIRED).I take the still frozen dish and 1 cup of cheese to the sick person's home and tell them (or their family) how to cook it, and they can choose to use it WHENEVER they want. This dish takes about the same amount of time to cook in the oven whether frozen or thawed before putting in the oven. Great dish!

I have made a version of this with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving for years. I use 4 c turkey and 2 c celery (instead of the seed). I also add 4 hard boiled eggs, cut up and 1 can cream of mushroom soup. Mix everything together the night before, except cheese, almonds and french fried onions. Refrigerate overnight to let the flavors connect. Then cook for 20 minutes at 400 before adding the "toppings" and cook for another 15 minutes unitl bubbly and brown. Excellent!! If you don't have french fried onions, 1 c crushed potato chips work well too.
