Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook shell pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Rinse in cold water until cool and drain.
Combine pasta, chicken, celery, and almonds in a large bowl. Mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in another bowl. Pour mayonnaise mixture into pasta mixture; stir well. Fold eggs into pasta. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours.

Holiday Chicken Salad
The cranberries provide the seasonal punch to this tasty salad.
Grilled Chicken Salad with Seasonal Fruit
An amazing main dish salad that stars grilled chicken and fresh seasonal fruit.
I cook the chicken in a deep casserole dish 1/2 filled with water. Put in chicken, cover and cook for about an hour. Cut chicken breast in 1/2 to make sure it's not pink. Serve with rolls, jello and pickles.
