Hot Chicken Salad

This is Pat Pfluger’s recipe, it is a great meal for company, they will remember it~I know I did!

Hot Chicken Salad is a main course meal, all you need to add is a fresh vegetable salad  or fruit salad and hot rolls for a fantastic company dinner. It is one of Pat Pfluger’s great recipes, and she has many. It can be put together the day before and then topped with the cheese and potato chips just before heating. Talking about potato chips, one bag is almost $5. The world has gone crazy. I can buy a whole chicken for less than that. Or I can buy a pound of fat hamburger meat for $7. Recently I saw cows tongues  in the market for a whopping $32 each, that is the trash meat that the butcher used to give away for nothing. I like the old days best~
