2. To a mixing bowl, add the toasted almonds, celery, lemon zest and mayonnaise. Stir to combine well.
3. Add the chicken, herbs and stir through. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary.
4. Fill your sandwiches evenly with mixture, about 1cm thick. Remove the crusts then divide into three even-sized fingers. An electric carving knife is perfect for this task!
