HUNTINGTON CHICKEN: From Cooks.com comes this recipe
for a chicken perhaps named for our fair town. 2-1/2 c. uncooked
shell pasta, 2 c. cooked, boned & diced chicken, 1 can
cream of chicken soup, 1 can chicken broth, 1/2 lb. Velveeta
cheese. Prepare pasta, stir in chicken, soup, broth and Velveeta.
Season to taste. I like to add onion and celery, seasoning
salt and some garlic, but just season to suit your taste.
Put in 9x13 baking dish, top with grated cheese
and crushed potato chips or bread crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees
for 40 minutes.
