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.

A creamy lemon-dill spread adds summery flavor to tender chicken served between slices of grilled French bread. "People who have tried this sandwich say it's 'to die for'," reports Orien Major of Hinton, Alberta.
Grilled indoors, this delightful sandwich can be enjoyed any time of year. “The honey-mustard dressing gives the chicken plenty of pizzazz, and the apple and pecans lend a lively crunch,” notes Lisa Huff of Birmingham, Alabama.
“I made these simple-yet-special sandwiches for a birthday party,” notes Shannon Tucker of Land O' Lakes, Florida. “Tangy cranberries and crunchy celery pep up the chicken. Leftover turkey works well, too.”
“A friend introduced me to these popovers, and I enhanced the recipe a bit by adding jalapeno peppers," explains Vicki Bluemner in Collinsville, Illinois. "My family has enjoyed these for almost 18 years. Hope yours does, too.”
Everyone likes these tasty sandwiches. Flattening the chicken breasts helps them cook faster, and the mango chutney and other toppings make them better than anything you could order in a restaurant. —Agnes Ward, Stratford, Ontario
