I recently served these Chicken and Lemon Sandwiches with Tarragon at our 1930's themed Engagement Party and they were a smash! If lemon zing, creamy mayonnaise and tarragon are your thing keep reading!
These gorgeous little chive encrusted triangles are one of my favourite things to eat; they look impressive for an event and taste very refreshing. They are even great for a casual on the run weekday sandwich too.
The original recipe is from Donna Hay (I know, I know, she really is too good! She made these for Oprah!), though I like to 'french' mine up a bit by adding lemon zest and tarragon and leaving out Donna's mint and basil.
Here we go...
Lemon, Tarragon and Chicken Sandwiches
Makes 24 delicious little triangles
12 Slices of White Bread
Soft Butter for Spreading
2 Cups of Chopped Cooked Chicken (320grams)
3/4 cup of Whole Egg Mayonnaise (I use the Kewpie Japanese Mayonnaise)
2 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoons of Lemon Zest
1 Handful of Tarragon
Sea Salt and Cracked Papper
Extra Mayonnaise for spreading
Handful of Finely Chopped Chives
Spread one side of each bread slice with butter.
Place the chicken, mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, tarragon, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine.
Divide chicken mixture between half the bread slices and top with remaining bread slices.
Cut sandwiches into small triangles and brush one side with the extra mayonnaise.
Press the mayonnaise side of the sandwich into the chives (I keep mine on a plate).
