Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar and honey. Refrigerate. Combine the first 6 ingredients.
Add the dressing and gently toss (filling should not be too moist).
Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
Spread a thin coat of butter on the bread slices.
Fill with 2 or 3 tablespoons of chicken salad.
Top with the remaining slices of bread and cut the crusts off.
