Chicken Salad Sandwiches with Cranberry and Apricot Chutney
[recipes from Tea Time magazine]

1 rotisserie chicken, meat coarsely chopped 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened cup mayonnaise 1 Tbsp chopped chives or green onion 1 tsp chopped fresh sage 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme (I used dry) tsp salt tsp ground black pepper 1 loaf thinly sliced white bread (I used Pepperidge Farm) cup chopped pecans, toasted (I omitted toasting) 1/8 tsp celery salt (I omitted) In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, cream cheese and mayo. Stir to combine. Add the chives, sage, thyme, and salt and pepper. Spread a layer of chicken salad onto one slice of bread and top with a second slice. Cut the crusts off the bread and cut into triangles. Repeat with remaining slices and salad. Place pecans in a shallow bowl. Gently press edges of each sandwich into pecans to coat. Arrange sandwiches prettily on plate or footed plate, having the pecan-coated edges standing up. Garnish plate with parsley and serve chutney on the side.
