Chicken Croissant Sandwiches

These sandwiches are easy to pull together when you need something fun and taste-worthy in a flash. I make them often for occasions like brunches, church youth meetings and impromptu family gatherings. —Cheryl Sigler, Louisville, Ohio

    these were really good. The only things I did different was I added some chopped celery and I used chopped pecans instead of sunflower kernals. Loved the flavor of adding the oranges to it. Very tasty! I'll definitely make it again.

    I had totally forgotten about this recipe.. My great aunt used to make this, so this recipe brought back so many good memories. I love mandarin oranges! Because I didn't have quite the amount of chicken, I also chopped up one stalk of celery to make more of the salad.

    I made these chicken sandwiches for lunch today and wished I had found this recipe sooner. It is fabulous. The flavor is delightful and both hubby and I loved these sandwiches. I used fresh Mandarin oranges and finely chopped some sweet onion since I did not have any green onion. Those were the only changes I made. I highly recommend this delicious recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor.
