Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches are filled with flavorful chicken salad stuffed between buttery, soft croissant rolls. These are delicious sandwiches we love to eat year round!I believe everyone has their own special way to make chicken salad. The varieties are endless and definitely delicious. I like mine pretty simple, and without any nuts, like a lot of recipes have.
Today, I’m sharing my favorite way to make it. My chicken salad is cool, refreshing and so flavorful. It’s the perfect recipe for summer time! One of my favorite ways to enjoy it is between a soft buttery croissant.
These Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches are amazing. They make for a great summer lunch or dinner, but I make them year round because we love them so much!
My main advice is to prepare the chicken salad at least 4 to 6 hours in advance. Overnight is even better! That way the flavors have a chance to really develop. It’ll be worth the wait. I promise. 😉
4 cups cooked shredded chicken
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
1 12 cups red grapes – halves
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream or ranch dressing
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Juice of a small lemon
8 croissant rolls
Add the cooked chicken, celery, grapes and green onions in a large bowl. Toss to collect. Set the bowl aside.
In a small bowl add mayonnaise, sour cream, chopped dill, pepper, salt and lemon juice. Whisk together until combined. Pour the sauce over the chicken mixture. Stir until combined.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
Cut each croissant roll in half. Spread half a cup of chicken salad on the bottom half. Put the other half on top.
