Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches

This week has been focused on new trends for 2016. Today, however, I'm feeling like something old. The recipe I'm sharing is nothing new around my home, but it is the best recipe for Chicken Salad Sandwiches I've ever tasted. Everyone I serve these delicious sandwiches to, love them. 

Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches


4 large cans premium white chicken (I prefer the large cans you buy from Costco)
(or, 4-5 chicken breasts, boil until cooked, then shred with a fork)
4-6 green onions, sliced thinly
¼ C chopped black olives, if desired
4 medium stalks celery, chopped (1 cup)
1 C sliced almonds or salted cashews 
2 C red grapes sliced in half (I use 3 C grapes because we love a lot of grapes)
Salt & Pepper to taste (approximately ½ tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper)
Croissants (14 large or 24 small)

1 - 8 oz pkg. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 C sour cream
1 Tbls. lemon juice
1 C mayonnaise


1. In a large bowl, add the chicken, green onions, olives, celery, almonds (or cashews), and grapes.  Toss to combine. Set bowl aside.

2. In a small bowl, add the cream cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Stir well with a fork until combined (a few small lumps of cream cheese is fine - it will blend in).

3. Pour the sauce over the chicken mixture. Stir until combined.

4. Cover and refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.

5.  Slice each croissant roll in half. Spread with approximately 1/2 cup (depending on the size of croissant) of chicken salad over the bottom half; top with the other half. 

Serve and enjoy!

As a side note to the Artichoke Wonton Wrappers recipe that I shared in December...

I made them for our family party on New Year's Eve and this is seriously the most delicious appetizer. And best of all, they're easy to make.  You definitely need to try them. Your guests will love devour them!

You'll find the recipe and original source HERE.

My sweet husband surprised me with a new camera for Christmas. I'm still trying to figure out the functions so my pictures vary in quality. I'll get it figured out soon, I hope!
Warmest regards,
