  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 ...

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 ...

This is one of the most delicious casseroles I have made. Not only did my family love it, but it is easy to put together. It would be great for a dinner party because it can be prepared early ...

This was good, but it did not come out like I expected from the reviews. This recipe is more like a coated meat with cheese and fried onions than a casserole, so you definelty need side dishes.

This was good. My son loved it! I thought it was a little heavy. I will try making it next time with 1/2 or 3/4 c of mayo vs. 1 cup. I also think adding broccoli into this or serving it over ...

Great recipe; prepared and cooked much more quickly than I anticipated. I tweaked it a bit: Doubled the recipe, baked 3 lbs. chicken in chicken broth, and substituted dill weed for the celery....

This was absolutely delish!!!! I made it for company and everyone raved about it!! Great crunch and flavor. The only thing I did different from the recipe was I baked the casserole for 20 minute...

Really easy, quick and tasted great. You can tweak this so many ways too. I made it as directed and served it with broccoli. The next day I mixed them together, tasty! Would add broccoli at t...
