Strawberry Chicken Salad Mini Sandwiches

For the dressing:
 ½ cup mayonnaise
 1 tbsp Colavita Prosecco White Wine Vinegar
 2 tsp poppy seeds
 2 tsp honey
For the sandwiches:
 12 pieces whole wheat bread, toasted
 2 cups cooked chicken or 2 chicken breasts, poached* *Note: you can use a rotisserie-style, pre-cooked chicken or poach some chicken, using the instructions below.
 1 cup chopped strawberries
 1 cup mandarin orange slices, drained and halved
 2 scallions, finely chopped
 1/4 tsp salt freshly ground black pepper
 Lemon-poppy seed dressing
First make the dressing.
1

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine.Refrigerate until ready to use.

Now make the chicken salad.
2

Toast the whole wheat toast in either a broiler or toaster.

3

Set aside. In a large bowl, combine chicken, strawberries, scallions, mandarin oranges, and poppy seed dressing.

4

Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.

5

Place the chicken salad on one piece of toast.

6

Top with another piece of toast. Press down the top of the sandwich with one hand, and with the other, cut the crusts of the bread off with a serrated knife.

7

Once you have trimmed off the crusts, cut the sandwich into 4 squares or triangles.

8

Serve with Chamomile tea!

To poach chicken:
9

Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of a 4 quart sauce pan. Fill the pan with enough water to cover the chicken by an inch.

10

Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, covering the pot.

11

The chicken is done when it is opaque through the middle and an instant-read thermometer in the thickest part of the meat registers 165°F. This takes about 10- 15 minutes.

12

Remove the chicken from the cooking liquid and cut into pieces.
