Colorful Chicken Croissants Recipe

Colorful Chicken Croissants Recipe

A friend of mine invented this fruity chicken salad. I've made it many times, and guests are always surprised at the pleasant blend of tastes and textures. It's handy to take in a cooler to a picnic, where you can assemble the croissants on site. -Shelia Lammers, Englewood, Colorado
