Betty Crocker's Chicken Hat

Another gem from Betty Crocker's New Dinner for Two Cookbook [1972].

This is a narcissistic chicken sporting a jaunty bread-and-pear chapeau.

What more can be said?

Chicken Salad
For variety, use 1/4 cup chopped salted almonds in place of bacon.

1 cup cut-up cooked chicken (large chunks)
1/2 cup cut-up celery (1/4" pieces)
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 or 2 hard-cooked eggs, cut up
1/4 cup finely broken crisp bacon

Toss chicken, celery, lemon juice, salt, and pepper together. Mix in mayonnaise. Carefully fold in eggs. Chill thoroughly. If desired, serve in tomato cups or on drained pineapple or avocado slices on salad greens. Sprinkle with the crisp bacon. 2 servings.
