Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

No one will be able to resist these sandwiches, with tender chicken strips tucked into a lightly toasted bun. And in place of traditional mayonnaise or mustard, they feature a creamy herbed cheese spread. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
