Chicken Sammiches of Deliciousness

From the Donna Hay wedding magazine

500g chicken breast fillets
1cup whole egg mayonnaise
2tbl salted capers, rinsed & drained
3/4cup finely shredded basil leaves
1tbl finely chopped red onion
1tbl finely grated lemon rind
sea salt and cracked black pepper
125g baby rocket
24slices white bread, crusts removed (I actually assemble the sandwiches and then cut the crusts off. It's easier and you get to nibble on gooey crusts)

Bring a frying pan of water to the boil, reduce heat, add the chicken breasts & poach for 4minutes each side or until cooked (Lies! waaaay longer than 8minutesis needed and that's even after I slice the breasts in half to make them smaller)
Remove chicken, allow to cool and chop finely.
Combine everything except the rocket (and the bread, obviously) and smear on half the bread, pop the rocket on top, the the other half of the bread, slice off the crusts, cut into thirds, use leftover crusts to scrape the bowl clean, make vaguely obscene moans about how good these are and then dash off to the party.

(I may have started writing my instructions rather than hers somewhere along the way..oops)
