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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Combine chicken and next 4 ingredients (through water chestnuts) in a large bowl; stir well. Combine low-fat mayonnaise and next 5 ingredients (through black pepper) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add mayonnaise mixture to chicken mixture; stir well to combine. Spoon chicken mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle with cheese. Top cheese evenly with chips. Bake at 400° for 13 minutes or until filling is bubbly and chips are golden.

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. I used a whole rotisserie chicken (with skin removed) instead of the 4 chicken breasts. I also added a little more green onion and red pepper to the mixture (just chopped up what I had). I thought the dish was delicious and worked really well serving it with a soup or a salad.

I enjoyed this recipe, but I would cut down on the chestnuts a little next time. For being healthy I thought this was a good recipe, but my husband didn't enjoy it.

Very tasty and my kids actually liked it (all except my super picky one). Didn't have four cups of chicken, so I added whole wheat egg noodles. Also left out the lemon. Took longer than 13 minutes to become bubbly though. Next time I'll cover and cook until bubbly, then uncover, top with cheese and chips, and brown to finish.

This was actually really good! We used Celery instead of Water Chesnuts because I read a review that it tasted too crunchy, like salad. So we thought celery would be a lighter "crunch" substitute. We also only had regular Hellman's Mayo....oops! But that made a huge difference! I would definitely make this again! No complaints from the entire family!

Followed advice and 1 Tbsp of lemon juice and celery instead of water chestnuts. That made this a hit with the whole family, good leftovers too.

One of the few Cooking Light recipes that I wouldn't eat the leftovers. It was definitely sour, as the last review says. The bell peppers and water chestnuts seemed out of place. Just not a good one...

Sorry, but this was gross. Similar to other reviews, I found this to have a sour taste, even after cutting back on the mayo. I added some rice to give it more substance, but that didn't help either. Won't be making again.
