Try any one of these Chicken Sandwich recipes. Just remember that presentation is what makes the tea sandwich extra special... "Small" & "Dainty" are the rule of thumb here!

Sliced Cold Chicken Sandwich: Layer sliced chicken between slices of buttered bread or toast with sliced tomato, lettuce, and mayonnaise. Also add sliced of deli cold cuts and cheese to taste.


Sandwich Tips:

  • Leave crusts on all but dainty tea sandwiches; they help keep sandwiches fresh.

  • Assemble components, then put sandwiches together just before serving, particularly important if ingredients are drippy.

  • Soften butter to room temperature so it spreads more easily.

  • If filling is creamy, butter 1 slice of bread only.

  • Be generous - but not lavish - with butter or mayonnaise; 1 teaspoon per slice is ample.

  • Spread butter or mayonnaise and sandwich fillings to the edge of the bread.

  • Use several thin slices of meat or cheese rather then a single thick one.

  • Make sure salad-type fillings are creamy, not soupy.

  • Make toasted sandwiches at the very last minute and do not stack toast - it will become soggy.
