Chicken Salad Croissant

1 Review

We’re big fans of chicken salad at our house and this chicken salad croissant is definitely worth making! I’m sad that you can’t see the tarragon or pepper in the chicken salad in this picture. We were trying to eat in a hurry so that we could go have a fun night out so I didn’t notice what a bad picture it was.

If you are going to do chicken salad with mayo this is a great way to do it. Sometimes chicken salad is so bland that I don’t enjoy it, but with the pepper, tarragon and lemon juice this one was wonderful.

Can Croissants Be Frozen?

Croissants can be frozen for up to 6 months.

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and then foil and place in a heavy duty freezer bag.

Do Red and Green Grapes Taste The Same?

Red grapes tend to be a little sweeter than green.

Green grapes can be a little sour.

How Long Will Chicken Salad Keep?

Chicken salad will keep for 3-5 days in the refrigerator.

Store in a container with a lid.

  • Yummy. My Mother-in-law puts cashews and sometimes grapes in her chicken salad and it's so good!
