A friend's mom passed this on to me. She and her husband had to relocate to Puerto Rico for his job and they spent quite a bit of time down there. When she came home, she brought a ton of new recipes to pass on to us. She and her husband had this at a small restaurant and they wouldn't give up the recipe. This is her take on it.

I loved the sandwich but I made it without the almonds. The tarragon gave it a nice touch. I used dried tarragon instead of the leaves. I also added my chips into my sandwich. Love the crunch! A nice dill pickle on the side and I was ready to go!

This is exactly how I make my chicken salad, except I probably add a bit more tarragon, because I love it. If you don't care for sour cream, mayo will work well.

Absolutely loved it. the only thing I changed ommitting the salt. I made this for my neighbour and I. (OK she did most of the work; but the dill pickles were ones I had canned myself over a year ago..and of course who can turn down chips (certainly not me)
