Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad

Another recipe I brought to Alena's baby blessing.  Again, everyone seemed to enjoy it!  I doubled the recipe for the party, but ended up having lots of leftovers.  Unfortunately, on the way home, the lid came off and ice water got into the bowl and I had to throw all the leftovers away.  I was SO bummed out!

5-6 chicken breasts (boiled) and cut up in bite size pieces
1 cup finely chopped celery (use your food processor)
2 cans mandarin oranges (drained)
3-4 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup mayonnaise (give or take to get right consistency)
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients together.  If you use your hands, you can easily shred the chicken and mandarin oranges into fine pieces.  Garnish with additional sliced almonds, mandarin oranges, and fresh parsley.  Serve on croissants or freshly baked rolls.
