Reviews for Mini Chicken Salad Croissants
"These croissant sandwiches are absolutely delicious. I did add the sliced grapes as well as the green pepper and we loved it. I am already planning on serving them at a meeting next month. Delicious.I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."
"This was a good sandwich and easy to put together after a long days work. I didn't have the nuts or mushrooms, so we did without. I added green onion, garlic powder, and chopped cherry tomatoes. I would make this again."
"Great summertime sandwich!"
"I added some garlic powder and it made all the flavors come together. This would be good to use up any leftover turkey, too."
"I prepared this recipe for a small group of ladies; served it with some condiments and a fruit salad. It was a big hit and really did make exactly 20!!LJRose Schaumburg, IL"
