2 cups (500 mL) cooked shredded chicken
4 tsp (20 mL) mayonnaise
1 or 2 sprigs tarragon, finely chopped
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
Zest of one lemon
8 slices crusty whole wheat bread
8 slices Canadian cheddar or
Swiss or
Havarti cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp (30 mL) unsalted butter, (room temperature)

Did you know that a serving of cheese is 50 g (1 ½ oz)?

This is the same size as two erasers or a half-pack of playing cards. Easy to remember now, right?


Mix chicken, mayonnaise, tarragon, green onion, mustard, garlic and lemon zest in a bowl.

Evenly distribute the chicken spread and cheese slices among the four sandwiches. Season to taste and top with remaining slices of bread. Butter the outside of the bread and grill sandwiches until golden-brown and cheese has melted inside.
