Hot Chicken and Chips Retro

Randy Mayor; Cindy Barr
This recipe has a nostalgic appeal that harks back to the 1950s and '60s. If you make it ahead, don't add the baked potato chips until it's time to bake the casserole, or they'll become soggy.

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 (8-ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
