These chicken sandwiches are a cinch to make and perfect for parties. You could also whip up a smaller batch for lunch or as an after-school treat!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
24 chives
1/2 medium roast chicken, skin discarded, meat removed and finely shredded
125g whole-egg mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pinches pepper
16 slices white bread, crusts removed

To garnish

Quantity Ingredient
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons whole-egg mayonnaise
10 chives, finely chopped

Method

  1. Using scissors, finely snip the chives into a medium mixing bowl. Add the chicken, ½ cup of mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Combine well with a spoon.
  2. Arrange 8 slices of bread on a clean work surface and, using a small bowl scraper, evenly spread on the chicken mixture. Top with the remaining slices of bread.
  3. With adult help: Using a sharp knife, cut each sandwich into 4 small triangles. Try not to squash the sandwiches too much!
  4. Put the sesame seeds on a small, flat plate. Using a pastry brush, thinly brush one edge of each sandwich triangle with the remaining mayonnaise. Press that side into the sesame seeds, then place on a serving platter. Sprinkle over extra chives and serve immediately.

Note

  • Although these sandwiches are best eaten fresh, they can be made 1 hour in advance and kept, wrapped in plastic wrap, in the refrigerator.

Time-saving tips

  • Have all your equipment and ingredients ready. Find a kitchen hand to help you prepare the ingredients ahead of time.
