Chicken Salad

3 c. sliced almonds

1 1/2 finely diced onions

lemon juice

1 ½ qt. - 2 qt. mayo

Simmer breasts in covered stockpot with water to cover until done. Cool and chop into small pieces. Slice and add celery, almonds, onions (if serving same day) and lemon juice (just sprinkle over, I never know how much I use). Mix in mayo just to hold together. Whip cream and fold into mixture.

. . . here are the Pinterest biscuits we made at our reunion. We made a quadruple batch and not a one was left over.
I still prefer my "from scratch" recipe but these are super good and so beat Bisquick biscuits!!!

Bisquick, sour cream, 7up (any lemon/lime soda) and butter!.... These are excellent!!!!
So easy and soooo good!
(Just a note, I used diet, lemon/lime soda and "light" sour cream)
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-up
1/4 cup melted butter (come on, use BUTTER)
1. Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up. Makes a very soft dough.
2. Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat/roll dough out and cut (I kneaded a few times).
3. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan.
Place cut biscuits in pan and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown.
