Recipe: Hot Chicken Salad

This isn’t your average bridal shower chicken salad recipe. At Passanante’s Home Food Service we’re passionate about good, easy to prepare foods, and this recipe checks all the right boxes.

What we love most about this Hot Chicken Salad is the way it’s prepared; just toss the ingredients all together and bake — no real mess or fuss involved. Even better, since this recipe serves eight, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll have enough left over to eat it for a couple of meals. The only way to make this comfort food recipe any easier would be if you allowed Passanante’s food delivery service to bring every ingredient straight to your door, so when you’re ready to throw dinner together there’s no grocery store fuss to deal with.

We’d love to hear more about your favorite foods, and get a good idea for some recipes you might enjoy reading next week! Pop on over to our Facebook Page and leave us a line on our wall. Until then, happy eating!
