Walnut Chicken Tea Sandwich

Another delicious tea sandwich recipe that I would like to share with you. You can use any leftover roasted chicken instead of canned ones. Enjoy!
Ingredients: (serves 4)
Filling:
1 piece of organic chicken breast (or 1 can chicken breast, drained well)
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup walnuts, chopped finely
2 Tbsp. chopped raisins
salt and pepper to taste
8 slices quality whole wheat or nut bread
Herbed butter:
1 stick soft unsalted butter
2 tsp. minced fresh herbs of your choice (parsley, dill, chives, or chervil)
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. grated lemon zest
salt and pepper to taste
Method:
Herbed Butter: Place butter, and the rest of the ingredients into the bowl. Mix and blend well with a wooden spoon until smooth. (I used a hand held electric mixer). Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Walnut Chicken: Season chicken breast with some salt and pepper. Heat some oil in frying pan, cooked until brown on both sides. Drain and chopped finely. In a bowl, mix together mayonnaise and chopped chicken meat. Next, stir in walnuts and raisins to the mixture.
How to assemble:
1. Spread each 8 slices of bread with a layer of the herbed butter. Top each slice of bread with the chicken mixture. Cover with the remaining 4 slices of buttered bread.
2. Using a sharp knife cut off the crusts and into 4 equal bite-sized pieces.
