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.

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.

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!

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.

I love this dish! I "cheat" and buy a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and pull off the meat so it's obviously a little higher in fat due to the dark meat (I don't use the skin) but it's SUPER easy. I also skip the red pepper (just prefer it raw versus cooked and don't miss it in the dish). The finished product is so creamy and tangy. I feel like I'm spoiling myself! I've brought it to a potluck and it was a hit! (You can always tell by an empty serving dish at midway through a potluck)

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.

Hot chicken salad is what this tasted like. If you like mayo you will probably enjoy this recipe. We however did not. I think with cream of chicken soup instead of mayo it would be much better. I also substituted corn for water chestnuts. I am deleting this one from my saved recipes.
