3 cups of flour
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups of chopped pecans
1 teaspoon of salt
¾ cup of cooking oil
Combine this and set aside 1 ½ cups for topping.
Press this into a 9 X 13 size greased pan.
Bake for 10 minutes until lightly brown at a 300 degree temperature.
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chicken broth
Beat well with a mixer, add:
4 cups chopped cooked chicken or the meat of the baked chicken (could use chicken breasts and canned broth) 1 - cup cheddar cheese
½ cup finely chopped onion
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of hot sauce.
Beat good and pour over baked crust sprinkle with crumb mixture until done about 25 minutes.
I think the best way to make this to be at its best is to bake a large fryer chicken using at least a quart of water in a dutch oven or a good covered roaster pan. Then you use the diced chicken meat and good broth in the recipe.
You will also have enough broth to make chicken gravy to serve over wonderful mashed potatoes.
