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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
