Hot Chicken Salad Recipe

Hot Chicken Salad Recipe

Having my recipe selected as a winner is a special thrill for me—my husband is a manager of the Penn State Univ. poultry research farm. Baking has always been my favorite type of cooking. So, when I got married 9 years ago, I was happy to have this simple yet delicious recipe—which originated with my aunt and was passed on to my mom. Now, with three small children (they're 6, 4, and 1), I need all the fast dishes I can find! It's great for a luncheon...or served with salad and rolls, for supper.
