Wonderful chicken salad - nice and creamy! Plus it's a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken. I used Hellman's light mayo and added a bit of finely chopped celery along with the almonds. This was great on mini potato rolls. Read More

The measurements were all off on this one when I reduced the serving size to only one. I ended up with tons or whipped cream so the chicken salad was extremely "whipped cream tasting." I added more seasonings and it just didn't come together as well I as thought it would have considering the reviews. Maybe I will make it again using the recommended amounts. Read More

Very good recipe. I made this for a baby shower and scaled the recipe to make 35 servings. I added celery and grapes which I love in chicken salad and it turned out great. I didn't have fresh tarragon on hand so I used dry tarragon (only used half of what the recipe called for since I used dry seasoning instead of fresh). The next time I make this I will not put in as much tarragon as the recipe calls for since I thought it was a little overpowering. However I am pregnant and that may be why I found the taste to be a little much. Overall this is a very good recipe and is easy to make. Read More

This dish is especially good when broccoli cauliflower or celery are added. Read More

Left out the almonds and didn't bother to whip the cream. Added a wee squeeze of lemon and a teeny bit of finely minced onion. Loved the fresh tarragon but I mostly was wowed with using grilled chicken rather than poaching it. Read More

I really like this recipe because it's so creamy and doesn't taste entirely like mayo. I added green grapes and celery to give it an extra kick and it was fabulous on toasted bread. It's perfect for a women's tea or brunch and even works great on a bed of lettuce. Read More

Everyone liked this one. Used canned chicken and it worked very well. I put the almonds in the food processor to chop them. Next time will reduce the time maybe just pulse to chop so there are still chunky pieces. Read More
