I have always loved afternoon tea and tea sandwiches. In fact, growing up my sister and I would go have afternoon tea at a place up the street from our house in California at least once a semester. We would gorge ourselves on chicken and egg salad, cucumber-dill, olive tapenade, and pumpkin cream cheese sandwiches. Then we would wash it all down with a big pot of tea.
While on my lunch break yesterday, I decided to make myself some tea sandwiches. Because I had shredded chicken from dinner the night before, raisins, walnuts, cucumber and cream cheese in the pantry and refrigerator, I decided to make curry chicken salad and cucumber-cream cheese sandwiches. Of course I drank tea.
Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich
1 roasted or poached chicken breast, shredded
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans--I used walnuts
1/3 cup raisins--I used golden raisins
1-2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon curry powder, to taste
salt and pepper
White bread with crust cut off
Combine above ingredients, adding more mayonnaise if necessary. Spread even layer over one side of the bread. Build sandwich and carefully cut into four small squares with a bread knife. Enjoy!
