large leaves Boston lettuce, halved
1 (16 ounce) package

We really liked these little sandwiches. The layers of pineapple cream cheese and the use of poppy seed dressing mixed into the chicken (instead of mayo) really added layers of flavor. The only thing that I would do differently the next time is to open the rolls and brown them under the broiler briefly before assembling. Would be very nice for brunch, a buffet, a reception, or a shower. Terrific combination of flavors, and they look rather elegant!
I call these chick burgers. My missus and my daughters loved these, and so did I. I had to create my own pineapple cream cheese, but that turned out good. I served on fresh buns. YUM.
Had to do a little tweaking on this (I'm lactose intolerant . I used mayo. instead of the poppy seed dressing, did not use cream cheese used orange marmalade, it went real well with the strawberries. Enjoyed this very much. Thanks HotGrandma.
Loved, loved, loved this sandwich! Very gourmet tasting. Used plain cream cheese because that's what I had, but can't wait to try it with the pineapple cream cheese. Will be a regular in my house. Thanks for sharing.
The husband and the baby really liked this, but I was pretty neutral. I think it would be better on a heartier bread, or made with tenderloins onto a sandwich. It was hard to get enough meat into each bite to satisfy quickly enough and resulted in a lot of bread consumption, which is not what I was looking for in this meal. The flavor was good, largely dependent upon the poppyseed dressing, so try to find one you know you like, or make your own and adjust to taste. My DH took an entire row of rolls and slit it down the side and turned this into some sort of weird submarine sandwich made mostly of Hawaiian bread, and I wish I'd gotten a photo of that because I think it would've tickled HotGrandma to see it! Thanks for sharing.
Great for those that love chicken but not mayonnaise! These are delicious and prep was really easy. I did not use the Hawaiian sweet rolls. We LOVE our chicken salad on croissants. These were served to company on Christmas Eve. These will be even better for Mother's Day or July 4th.
These were a nice variation of chicken salad sandwiches.
