Chicken Delight - my all-time favorite dessert!

Chicken delight a dessert?

There's a story to this dessert.
I used to live in a little town, outside a small town. One of the few places to eat was called "Chicken Delight". We had to pass it every time we went to the grocery store.

One day my friend Ginger served a dessert for dinner. A friend of mine and myself loved the dish and asked for the recipe. Ginger wrote it out, but instead of writing "Chocolate Delight", she wrote "Chicken Delight" instead. To this day, we joke about serving "Chicken Delight" for dessert.

This is an easy and tasty dessert. Almost as easy as Yogurt pie!

1 Cup Flour
1 Stick Margarine (1/2 cup)
1 cup nuts, chopped


Layer 1:
1 16 oz (454 gm) container Cool Whip or (make 16 oz Dream Whip)
8 oz (227 gm) cream cheese
1 Cup powdered sugar (this is what we use to make icing or frosting for a cake)

Layer 2:
2 large boxes instant chocolate pudding (you could sub other flavors, if you'd like)
3 cups (680 gm) milk (Or make about 3 1/2 cups (794 gm) of chocolate cornstarch pie filling)

Layer 3:
12 oz (340 gm)container of Cool Whip or (make 12oz Dream Whip)
nuts (opt)

Mix crust ingredients in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan (This is a large, rectangular casserole/cake size pan about 23 x 33 cm) Press down and bake for 20 mins (until golden brown) in a 350 (177 C) degree oven. Let it cool COMPLETELY.

Mix sugar and cream cheese together, then stir in the large Cool W hip. Spread it over the crust.
Mix the 2 puddings with 3 cups of milk and spread over cream cheese layer.
Top this layer with the medium Cool Whip. You can spread nuts over this layer if you so desire.

I hope you enjoy this.
If you don't know how to make a yogurt pie, comment me and I will do a post on it.
