Between soccer practice, violin lessons, homework, and remembering to feed the dog, dinnertime can be a huge hassle. That's why the recipe below is so handy. This hot chicken salad casserole can be made entirely in advance and kept in the fridge until you're ready to bake it. Just preheat the oven, bake it for 45 minutes, and dinner will be on the table in moments.
The flavors of this casserole are inspired by those of a classic chicken salad: Chicken, mayonnaise, celery, and water chestnuts are combined with a creamy sauce and a touch of cheddar cheese. Crushed potato chips make the perfect crunchy topping.
