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.

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