Tea Sandwiches (strawberry, cucumber, chicken)

We had a little tea party last night only we had ginger ale instead of tea. I served some strawberry tea sandwiches, cucumber tea sandwiches, chicken tea sandwiches and fruit on a beautiful tiered serving platter that our friend Pavlina brought me all the way from Macedonia. I'll have to buy a small tea pot and maybe next time we WILL have tea with our sandwiches.

The only issue I had with these sandwiches is that I forgot to buy thin bread so I used regular bread. it was too much bread. Be sure to buy the thin kind. And I used grilled chicken breast but you could probably use chicken from the deli.


I wish you could see the platter better. It's really pretty.





Ingredients
Strawberry Sandwiches
2 slices of bread
2 medium strawberries, sliced
1 tablespoon softened cream cheese
1 teaspoon strawberry jam
Cucumber Sandwiches
2 slices of bread
about 10 thin slices of English cucumber
1 tablespoon softened cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
Chicken Sandwiches
2 slices of bread
2 oz cooked chicken, sliced
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon wing sauce (or hot sauce)

Directions
To assemble the strawberry sandwiches, first mix the cream cheese and jam until well combined. Spread it over the bread and top with strawberry slices. Don't go right to the edge because after placing the other slice of bread on top, you will use a serrated knife to cut off the crusts. Cut into 4 or 8 triangles. Use toothpicks if you like. I was serving these to my kids. Toothpicks were not a good idea. Maybe for older children or adults.

To assemble the cucumber sandwiches, mix the cream cheese with dill, onion powder and granulated garlic. Spread onto the bread and top with cucumbers. Place the other slice on top and cut off the crusts. Cut into 4 or 8 triangles.

To assemble the chicken sandwiches, mix the mayo and hot sauce. Spread over the bread and top with chicken slices. Put the other slice of bread on and cut off the crusts. Cut into 4 or 8 triangles.

I got the idea for these from Fun Tea Party Ideas.
