Crazy for Chicken Salad

I’m nuts for chicken salad. There are a thousand different varieties with countless combinations of fruits, veggies, nuts, and flavors. I’m a fan of any version, but this was the first time I attempted to create my own. NavyGuy (who claims he hates chicken salad) gobbled his up. I used my “Busy Family Cookbook” as inspiration and altered two different recipes to come up with tonight’s dinner.

Chicken Salad Croissants
– 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
– 1 cup halved seedless red grapes
– 1/2 cup sliced celery
– 1/4 cup sliced green onions
– 3/4 cup mayo
– 1 teaspoon lemon juice
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– croissants
– lettuce leaf (optional)

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, grapes, celery, and onions. In a separate smaller bowl, mix the mayo, lemon juice, and salt. Drizzle the mayo mixture over the chicken, etc.; stir well. Pile on a cut croissant and devour.

Just fabulous! Of course, adding a croissant pretty much makes everything wonderful, but this would even be good without it. I’m excited to try another version in the future – I’ve seen recipes that include green apples, pecans, and all kinds of other tasty things. What do you go crazy for in your chicken salad?
