Colorful Chicken Croissants

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

    Excellent chicken salad recipe! I made this to share at a wine tasting picnic, and everyone loved it! The store didn't have croissants, so I served it on those Hawaiian rolls instead. The salad was delicious on those as I'm sure it would be on croissants. This is a keeper!

    I loved this recipe so much that I made this in the cafe I managed and it was an immediate hit. I also made this at a family event and my 19 yo brother, my sister, and my mother all request this recipe from me at lease twice per year. It is by far my favorite chicken salad recipe!
