Chicken Salad Croissants with Fresh Dill
Fresh dill is the secret to the success of these cold sandwiches. I like to use miniature croissants when serving them as an appetizer.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 3 cups diced grilled chicken
- 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained and halved
