This is a family favorite of ours...a dish that came from Southern Living Magazine (Dec 1984). Even the kids love it!

Unforgettable Chicken Casserole

3 cups chopped deli-roasted chicken (or other cooked, diced chicken meat)
2 cups finely chopped celery
1 cup (4 ounces) grated Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup light sour cream
1/2 cup light mayonaisse
1 can reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup
1 (4-ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and chopped (we do not put these in our dish)
1½ cups French fried onion rings

Stir together first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Spoon into a lightly greased 11x7baking dish.

Bake at 350ºF for 40 minutes; sprinkle onion rings evenly over top. Bake 5 more minutes or until bubbly around edges. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

I'll bet those water chestnuts add some remarkable crunch to the casserole. I hope you are having a wonderful day.
