In bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, thyme and basil. Add chicken, turning to coat; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)

Transfer chicken to foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for about 18 minutes or until no longer pink inside; let cool and dice.
¡In large bowl, stir together chicken, celery, apple, red pepper, onion and mayonnaise until combined.

Cut buns in half horizontally. Top each bottom half with about 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the chicken mixture, 2 slices of the cheese and about 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the salad greens; sandwich with tops of buns.
