Party Chicken Salad

This may be the quickest casserole I’ve ever made; individual casserole dishes made it even faster.   This is a fast, delicious way to use up some holiday leftovers – cooked turkey or chicken, olives from the relish plate, celery and onions you might have left from making dressing.   I think ham would be good too, or a combination of chicken and ham.   I remember this dish from '60's home economics classes.  The recipe was on a store-brand box of cornflakes I purchased to make cookies; I used some of the cornflakes in another casserole and also crushed them to bread pork chops.
My husband says “I’ll take this again.”  This is a perfect way to follow the adage “use it up……”
