Hello! Sorry it's been a while since I lasted posted a recipe! It's been ridiculously crazy around here. Between a week of church camp, a funeral, a big family picnic and two family reunions (all of this happening in the same week, I might add!), I just haven't had time. Plus, to be perfectly honest, I haven't even been cooking!!! We made so much food for all we had going on, that we've been eating leftovers all week!
My mom used to make a version of this casserole when I was younger. It was SO good and we all loved it. But it had SO many ingredients and so much stuff to cut up and everything, that it seriously took all day to make. Therefore, we had it very rarely. I came across this recipe one time and decided to give it a try. It was SO fast and easy and we actually liked it better than the one we used to make! So, I hope you give it a try and enjoy it as much as we do!
4 cups cooked chicken or turkey, cubed
Dash of salt and pepper
2 celery ribs, chopped finely
1/4 cup onion, chopped finely
2 cups Velveeta cheese, cubed
2/3 cup mayonnaise (I use miracle whip)
BBQ Potato Chips (check the label!)
Combine chicken, salt, pepper, celery, onion and cheese in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Add mayo and stir until everything is evenly coated. Spread evenly in a greased casserole dish. Cover with foil, and bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until hot through and cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes. Lightly crush potato chips and sprinkle over the casserole (we like a lot of chips on ours). Serve!
Combine chicken, salt, pepper, celery, onion and cheese in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Add mayo and stir until everything is evenly coated. Pour into a crock-pot. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until hot through and cheese is melted, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with lightly crushed potato chips and serve!
-For the crock-pot, I highly recommend using a crock-pot liner. It helps it not to burn to the sides of the crock-pot and makes clean-up so much easier!
