Baked Celery Chicken Cake

This crispy baked celery chicken cake is from nostalgic for me. When I was little – and that’s a few decades ago – my mom used to make something we called ‘chicken cake’. The skin was deliciously crisp and the chicken was finger-licking juicy. The only thing I remembered was that it had celery salt.
A while back I asked my mom where she found that recipe, and she said back in the days she saw it in a magazine and cut it out. Then a couple of days ago she texts me with the magazine clipping, saying she found it! So I knew what we were having for dinner… and the kids loved the crisp! I hope you enjoy too.
The old magazine clipping is included here too! LOL @‘Fried’ in the title! It’s baked of course!!
This recipe is word for word from the clip, with my changes.
