DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium size bowl, stir together the softened cream cheese and the mayo until well blended (I use a whisk).
  • With a wooden spoon, stir in the chicken and the next 7 ingredients.
  • Cover and chill the filling for 4-24 hours.
  • When ready to prepare the sandwiches after the 4-24 hour chilling time cut the crusts off of the bread slices.
  • Using cookie cutters, or assorted metal shaped cutters (medium-size round biscuit cutters work great too), cut the bread slices into desired shapes.
  • Spread half of the bread shapes with the chicken mixture, and top with the matching shape.
  • Roll the sandwich edges in chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  • Refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap until ready to use.
