Chicken Salad Sandwiches with Smoked Almonds
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 1⅓ cup mayonnaise-plus an additional ½ cup for coating
  • ⅓ cup minced green onions
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated
  • 2 tsp minced fresh tarragon leaves
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning {an herb blend found with spices, a.k.a. "Tuscan" seasoning}
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 loaf of sliced whole wheat bread
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped smoked almonds
  1. In a bowl stir together chicken, mayonnaise, green onions, tarragon, Tuscan Seasoning, and additional salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Make sandwiches with chicken salad and bread, pressing together gently. Cut the crusts off of the sandwiches and cut into thirds {or fourths} for finger size sandwiches.
  3. Put almonds on a plate and spread edges of each finger sandwich with remaining ½ cup mayonnaise to coat well. Roll edges in almonds.
  4. Sandwiches may be made 2 hours ahead, wrapped in plastic wrap, and chilled.
I used 12 slices of bread to make 6 large sandwiches, which I cut into thirds to get 18 finger sandwiches.
