    Thank you once again for a quick and wonderful recipe. Made these wonderful sandwiches for a girls afternoon get together and can’t wait to serve them again. Everyone loved them. I used poached chicken, seasoned with a little sprinkle of Herb seasoning and a small amount of finely diced celery, but that was the only difference I used to make these delightful morsels. Served with carrots and radishes on the side, perfect for the afternoon luncheon. Thank you again!
