Chicken Curry Tea Sandwich
Afternoon Tea & High Tea,
Yields: 8 whole sandwiches
Prep time: 10 min
2 cooked whole chicken breasts finely chopped
1/4 cup finely-chopped nuts
4 celery stalks, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Mayonnaise (just enough to moisten)
Curry powder or paste to taste
16 slices best-quality white bread*
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
Choose the best-quality white or wheat bread as
possible. Never serve end slices. Freezing the bread before cutting and then
spreading makes for easier handling.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, nuts, celery, salt, and mayonnaise; stir until well blended. Add curry powder or paste.
Remember, a little goes a long way with curry - be careful.
Spread one side of each piece of bread lightly with butter. Top the buttered side of 8 slices of bread with some of the chicken mixture and top with
the remaining bread slices, buttered side down.
Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a long, sharp knife. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and then cut in half again.
Yields 8 whole sandwiches or 16 halves or 32 fourths.
