Mini Chicken Salad Croissants Recipe

Mini Chicken Salad Croissants Recipe

Fresh-tasting and great for a get-together, this popular chicken salad could also be served on lettuce or a slice of cantaloupe or honeydew melon. When there will be kids in the crowd, I often substitute halved red seedless grapes for the peppers. —Patricia D. Tjugum, Tomahawk, Wisconsin

"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."

"I added some garlic powder and it made all the flavors come together. This would be good to use up any leftover turkey, too."
