Really delicious I left out the hard boiled egg and gherkins and it was still amazing!

Made this as directed except I run the chicken through my food processor first.I used boneless skinless chicken breast and just boiled them on the stove. This is delicious!! Please don't leave out any of the ingrediants-they all have a place in this salad and make it oh so good! Putting them on mini croissonts to take to a graduation open house for my niece and I'm sure everyone will love them as much as I do. This is way better than "basic" chicken saled-it's the bomb! Thanks for sharing Nimz.

Terrific chicken salad, TRUE! Doubled recipe, put inside scooped out tomatoe too! Skipped the egg, had some cajun chicken to use, on hand, "Crunch with a munch" send you to La-La Land" Thanks

Loved it. With toasted sliced almonds, this is a cut above "basic" chicken salad. This has the perfect balance of almonds, celery and sliced gherkins, with a hint of onion. The hard-boiled egg is barely discernable, but I think it helps the mayonnaise mixture to blend better with the chicken. Thanks for posting ~Nimz~! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

Dis is da bomb! Loved all ingredients in this wonderful chicken salad with a big taste. The gerkins, purple onions, the almonds and egg make up all the wonderful taste to this salad. I added less mayonnaise at first, and as it was a bit dry, added another tablespoon. (I used about 1/4 cup mayonnaise altogether) Served on fresh lettuce and tomato, and boy was this tasty! Thanks, Nimz!

Almost forgot to rate this, made it last week for work day lunches for hubby and I. We had it on crackers and it was very yummy. I liked the addition of the gherkins. I plan on taking this on our annual family car show weekend, thanks!

A great chicken salad. Easy to make from things in the pantry. The almonds are new to me but I think they are a great addition. I used a little diced red pepper to add the color I missed from the red onion. DH won't eat onions so I use onion powder (as long as he can't see the onion he doesn't seem to ever notice the taste, men!). Yummm

Excellent! All the ingredients of this wonderful salad go together perfectly! I loved the addition of the toasted nuts and gherkins, the crunch from the celery and the creaminess of the egg. This one's a winner! Thanks for sharing, Nimz!
