Which is it for you?
My hubs always giggles when I call it a Hot Dish . . .
(I wonder why).
Must have been what Wisconsinites or Iowans called it.
Hubs calls it a Caserole and he has always been a Michigander.
We had this for dinner last night with fresh MICHIGAN homegrown asparagus.
My momma's famous luncheon "hot dish" casserole!
Here is the recipe for you!
Need some comfort, calorie food, this is it!

Momma Leone's Chicken Luncheon Casserole
2 ½ cup cooked chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup diced celery
¾ cup mayo
1 tsp grated onion ( I add more)
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
(I always use more onion, plus I season the chicken breast for baking.)
1 ½ cup cooked rice
1 cup corn flakes
½ -1 cup of slivered almonds
Season chicken breast and bake, cut or shred in small pieces.
Mix all ingredients, except almonds and cornflakes
Put into casserole dish
Brown almonds in butter, mix with corn flakes
and put on top of casserole.
(cover the casserole with tin foil near the end if it gets to brown . . . I should have)
Cook 45 minutes at 375°
