May’s Chicken Salad

 

CknSalad_logo

When I first moved to the town where I currently live, there was a lovely little tea-room restaurant named after Mrs. Pawnee Bill, May Lillie.  Though the restaurant has been closed for many years, the chicken salad recipe is still a community favorite, often served at banquets, potlucks, and baby showers.  My sisters and I have made several adaptations to the original recipe, but I’d like to think that May Lillie would have served it proudly in her mansion.    ~Tracy

By the way, a visit to Pawnee Bill and May Lillie’s historic home is a must if you’re ever in our neck of the woods.  Plan your visit at:
