Pack this crunchy chicken salad for a picnic the next time you dine al fresco. To save time, use leftover chicken pieces, or precooked frozen chicken that you can simply cook up and cool. To make it a little sweeter, toss in an 11-ounce can of mandarin orange slices, drained.
The thought of making chicken potpie for a crowd may sound like your basic nightmare (who wants to roll out that much dough—or has that many ramekins?). Not if you follow this recipe, though. Crystal Cook and Sandy Pollock, aka the Casserole Queens, tell you to buy rotisserie chicken, mix it with a few basics, cover it with frozen puff pastry dough, throw the whole thing into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and heat until golden.
