Make it a Family Favorite

Everything about this Hot Chicken Salad Pie is unexpected. Chicken salad, topped with sour cream and onion potato chips, and baked into a flaky pie crust until it’s bubbling and hot. What a delicious surprise! It’s a long-time family recipe and I can’t believe I haven’t shared it here before! But better late than never, huh? My mom has been making this for as long as I can remember. It was a regular Sunday lunch for us and one of those dishes she will make in the winter as a warming comfort meal. This dish is easy, comforting, and I’m sure it will become a favorite in your house, too!

There’s so much to love about Hot Chicken Salad Pie! Fresh bell pepper and onion and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese add so much flavor to this dish. Celery and pecans (and of course, potato chips) add a crunch, giving it a great texture! And it’s so simple! I love the ease of a pre-made pie shell, but if you’re all about the homemade crust, have at it! Rotisserie chicken works perfectly well, but you might want to go easy on the salt.

How to Make Hot Chicken Salad Pie

First, preheat oven to 350°F. Bake the pie shell in the preheated oven for 10 minutes while you prepare the filling. Then in a large mixing bowl, mix together the shredded chicken, celery, onion, green bell pepper, cheddar cheese, and pecans.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, black pepper, salt and lemon juice for the dressing. Pour the dressing over other ingredients in the large mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Place the mixture into the warm pie shell and cover the top of pie with the crushed potato chips.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the potato chips are starting to brown and the mixture in bubbling. Allow it set up for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with a simple mixed green salad and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
