The chicken is poached in the jasmine green tea, lending fresh, fragrant appeal to the chicken salad. Lovely served for a ladies luncheon. The sandwich can also be cut into slender pieces and served as a "tea" sandwich.

Ingredients

Directions

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Turn off the heat, add the tea bags and let steep for 5 minutes. 

Remove the tea bags and bring back to a rolling boil. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt and the chicken. Cover, reduce the heat to low and poach until fully cooked, about 7 minutes. Drain and transfer the chicken to a small bowl to cool to room temperature. 

Stir together the onions, mayonnaise, yogurt, basil, tarragon, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Stir in the cooled chicken, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to combine. 

Toast the almonds in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. 

Divide the chicken among 4 of the bread slices, and top with the almonds, salad greens and the remaining bread slices. Cut in half and serve.
