Aunt Kate's Creamy Chicken Salad

My luncheon shower table, chicken salad puffs in back of flowers.

The first time I had my Aunt Kate's chicken salad was at my bridal shower that she hosted at her house in Brethren, MI.  My aunts, Jeannie, Lola, and Leona hosted, in addition to Aunt Kate.  It was held on Valentine's Day, February 14, 1981. It was so good I asked her for the recipe.  Aunt Kate served it in homemade cream puffs, but I have served it as a sandwich, as a salad on lettuce or cantaloupe.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Creamy Chicken Salad
Kathryn Louise Fredricks Tritten Puryear Pihl

3 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced onion
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste

Place chicken, celery, onion in a large bowl.  Add sour cream and mayonnaise.  Season to taste.

I was surprised at how simple the ingredients were.  I think it is the mixture of the sour cream and mayonnaise that made it taste so good.

Whenever I make this chicken salad I think of my aunts and the day of my bridal shower.
