    I remember my mom making a hot chicken salad casserole similar to this, but I think she used crushed potato chips mixed with shredded cheese for the topping...instead of mixing the cheese in with the casserole...will have to ask her! At any rate, the Julia Child connection is quite interesting. Hey - and thanks for bookmarking so many of my recipes. I appreciate it!

    A good tale is always worth the telling and even "The Julia" has got to recognize greatness. As I said, a great post. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. Cardinal Daniel Patrick Moynihan
