It's a delicious recipe but when I do make it for my lunches I lighten it up by using light mayonnaise and I omit the butter spread. But for special occasions, I recommend making it as listed below. Enjoy!
Almond Chicken Salad Tea Sandwiches
Recipe modified from Great Party Recipes
For a tea sandwich use any sandwich bread, crusts removed (or other favorite type of bread). Typically thin bread is preferred but I can never find it these days so regular sandwich bread works too.
Ingredients and Directions for the Butter Spread:
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
2 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped
Combine all ingredients.
1 cup finely chopped, cooked chicken breast
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup slivered almonds, chopped
1/4 cup minced shallots
Salt and Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients until well mixed.
Lay out bread or croissants. If making tea sandwiches, remove the crusts from the bread.
