I've had a crock pot for many years, but it was one of the first types that is vertical and it is difficult to get anything other than roasts in it. It's perfect for mulled apple cider when entertaining over the holidays though. I asked for a newer style for Christmas this past year and our daughter bought me one like hers that I had been admiring.
The chicken was a 6 pounder and with the addition of some onions, potatoes and carrots, it was all I could do to put the lid on - and this was just for the two of us.
Needless to say, we had quite a bit of chicken left over so I decided to try a recipe that fellow tea enthusiast Angela shared on her blog Tea With Friends. The recipe is from a booklet of Miss Mable's Tea Room. I won't repost the recipe called 'hot chicken salad' as you can get it here where Angela has it printed out.
Intended as a light supper with salad on the side, hubby and I both enjoyed the casserole.
* instead of cream of chicken soup, I used cream of mushroom
* in the future I would omit the mayonnaise as I found the mixture to be a little runny, but it did set some after cooling a bit
* hubby questioned the potato chips because of the sodium content and I will try an alternative next time
Angela suggested the recipe would be a nice dish to serve for a ladies luncheon, and I couldn't agree more.
