Chicken Salad Tea Sandwiches
1 cooked chicken breast
1 hard-boiled egg, finely grated
2 tablespoons julienned (1 1/2 inches long) Envy apple
2 teaspoons finely chopped pecan halves
1 tablespoon finely chopped sweetened dried cranberries
3 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 large Envy apple
8 large multigrain bread slices, crusts removed
Finely shred the chicken breast and place in a medium bowl. Add the egg, julienned apple, pecans, cranberries, mayonnaise, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Stir until well mixed.
Slice the whole apple lengthwise into paper-thin slices, and then trim the slices into 2 1⁄ -inch squares. Combine the water and lemon juice in a small bowl. Add the apple slices, and let stand until ready to use.
Preheat the oven broiler.
Cut the bread slices into halves lengthwise. Place on a baking sheet, and broil until the tops are just golden brown. Transfer the bread slices to a serving tray, and let cool slightly.
Spread about 2 tablespoons of the chicken salad over each bread slice.
Place an apple slice or two on top of each chicken salad sandwich.
