“She got it from Alma Worthington who was the food services director at Second Presbyterian for nearly 15 years. Dave's Mom, Dorothy had worked at that Church. This is a casserole made with cooked (leftover chicken) and is different from the other hot chicken salad recipes posted. I haven't tried this yet but it is one of Dave's Mom's favorites. I found this in Home Cookin' With Dave's Mom.”
