Rich's (almost) famous chicken salad sandwiches

Have you ever had a chicken salad sandwich that pretty much just tastes like mayo with a side of tasteless chicken? Pretty nasty right? (nasty is a favorite word of mine, I just like saying it. nasty. nasty. nasty.) Well in my quest for the perfect chicken salad sandwich my hubs came up with this recipe. It has now been passed around to over 100 people and I'm hoping it will make him (well lets be honest, ME) rich & famous one day. Since he's already rich (his name is Rich- I'm not bragging peeps!), I guess I'll settle for just famous. Here is my favorite sandwich of all time- get ready for alot of ingredients folks, I promise it will be worth it!
Rich's Chicken Salad Sandwiches: Makes 16 sandwiches
*4-cooked & shredded chicken breasts *1 TBL worcestershire sauce
*1/2 tsp pepper *6 sticks of celery chopped finely
*1 TBL chalula pepper sauce or Tabasco sauce *1 tsp lime juice *1.5 TBL lemon juice *2TBL stone ground mustard (the good stuff) *2 Cups mayonnaise
*1 Cup shredded fresh parmesan *1 Cup toasted sliced almonds
*2tsp onion powder *1 tsp minced fresh tarragon
Combine everything but chicken & almonds. After you've mixed the ingredients slowly add the sauce to the chicken. You may have extra sauce so don't dump it all in. Just add as much as you like. Chill for an hour. Add almonds right before serving. Serve on a croissant or whole wheat bread & add some tomato & bacon and you've just created heaven! I want to eat the screen just looking at this picture! mmmmm- excuse me while I drool............and over use parenthesis.
