Chicken Sandwiches with Lemon-Tarragon Mayonnaise

In Cooking, Uncategorized on February 9, 2011 at 8:10 pm

This was lunch today… it was light and delicious.  I think tea sandwiches are perfect for lunch, especially on a work day!   Also this was a great way to use up some roasted chicken I had left over from Monday night dinner.  If you LOVE tarragon, like my husband, then you can use fresh.  The flavor will be much more intense.  If you only like tarragon, or don’t know, then stick to the regular recipe.  It is not overbearing and a pleasing way to be introduced to this herb.

Lemon-Tarragon Mayonnaise:

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp grated lemon zest
juice of half a small lemon
1 tsp dried tarragon

Chicken Sandwich:

about 3/4 cup of cooked chicken
handful of spring or baby greens
4 slices of white bread, crusts removed
salt and pepper, if desired

Directions: In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise ingredients.  Spread the mixture on one side of each slice of bread.  Arrange greens of your choice on two of these slices; then add chicken; salt and pepper if desired (I do not); cover with the remaining dressed bread.  Press firmly and cut each sandwich into quarters (making 4 small finger sandwiches) or however you prefer… it’s your sammy! Cover with a damp tea towel or paper towel until ready to serve.  Yield: 8 tea sandwiches (or 2 full sandwiches… or lunch for one man, lol).

Happy Cooking … or in this case… happy prepping, easy clean up and merry eating!  😀

  1. Wow! Who needs to go to tea rooms for finger sandwiches – I’ll just come to your house.
