Most of you know that I have been spending a ton of time helping my mom with her new house. During this process she has been feeding me on the regular. I told mom, that I was gonna have to go home just to cook or I’m not gonna have anything to post on my blog AND my boys are going to starve…hehe! Well, instead of skipping out on my daughterly duties, I decided I would gather up some food to take and make for my mom. You know…kill 3 birds with one stone. Help my mom, make some food (cause we gotta eat), take pictures and write up a blog post!
My mom and I both share a deep love of chicken salad! She has been making chicken salad sandwiches for me all of my life. I have had chicken salad a thousand different ways but this is my most favorite way. My mom seems to love this variation too!
I make this chicken salad for everyday lunch, parties, baby showers, wedding showers…you name it! It can be served on bread for the everyday lunch but the croissant adds a buttery sweetness that can’t be beat!
These Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches are a breeze to make when you use a store bought rotisserie chicken! The chicken is around $6 and is already cooked. What a time saver and cheaper than boneless chicken breasts that would still need to be cooked.
Rotisserie Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches
- 1 whole rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1 cup finely diced celery
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1 medium apple (Red Delicious), peeled and chopped
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- green leaf lettuce
Mix the first 6 ingredients until well combined. Chill until ready to serve. Halve the croissants and top with green leaf lettuce and two heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any leftover chicken salad.
This Rotisserie Chicken Salad recipe can easily be doubled or halved. If you want a little crunch, add some chopped walnuts or pecans.
I hope you enjoy these sandwiches as much as my family does. I’m telling you they are the bomb! I can’t wait for you to try this recipe! Let me know what you think, when you give them a go!
