These were so appetizing I did not change the recipe from Tea Time magazine one bit!

Strawberry Chicken Salad Tea Sandwiches

The filling is rather moist with the strawberries and mandarins.  If making ahead don’t put the strawberry garnish on until you are ready to serve.  They are best served the same day as they are made, although you can make the filling a day ahead. They bread gets a bit soft on day 2.  I have to say I stilled enjoyed the leftovers though!

I also added Rolled Tea Sandwiches (which can and should be made a day ahead) and Walnut Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches to the platter.

This filling is so good you could also just serve it on a bed of lettuce and turn it into a salad meal.

Instructions
  1. Put all dressing ingredients into a blender and blend til smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use to allow flavours to meld.
  2. Poach chicken breasts in sauce pan over medium heat in water that reaches half way up the chicken breasts. About 10 minutes per side. Check for doneness.
  3. While chicken is cooking, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lay pecans out in a single layer on an oven proof pan. Toast about 13 minutes. Remove when browned and you can smell the nuts. Allow nuts to cool.
  4. While chicken is cooking rough chop the strawberries, celery and green onions and mandarins.
  5. When cool roughly chop chicken.
  6. Put chicken and other salad ingredients (except bread) in your food processor and pulse a few times until there are no big chunks of meat or fruit or vegetables. Be careful not to over process into a paste.
  7. Mix chicken salad and dressing. Chicken salad mixture can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.
  8. When ready to serve, cut crusts off the bread slices. Make sure your bread is square.
  9. Spread chicken salad mixture evenly over one half of the bread slices. It will be quite thick. Top with a plain piece of bread. Cut diagonally in half.
  10. Thinly slice the 3 strawberries reserved for garnish into 4 slices each. Top each sandwich with a slice of strawberry just before plating.
