Breakout the napkins because these sandwiches are nicely over flowing with veggies that stay cold and crisp from there ice water bath to the chicken dressed in a honey gherkin dressing. We did enjoy these and found them very satisfying. DH was so happy there was no bite to them while I would have enjoyed more of a sweet / savory contrast or more heat. Thanks for the post.
