Crunchy apples, chewy raisins, and sweet grapes come together with crisp lettuce, juicy chicken and spicy curry to make one unforgettably delicious sandwich served on a sweet flaky croissant.
These sandwiches are similar to a previous post of mine, Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches. I wanted to make these sandwiches for a Fall Equinox pot luck party friends of ours were having. Unfortunately I was missing a number of the ingredients so I had to improvise. I did a quick search through Pinterest to get some ideas, and took a few ingredients from different recipes and kinda threw it all together and crossed my fingers. Well, these sandwiches were a huge hit! My son over heard a number of people talking about how good the chicken croissants were and reported back to me. (my Little spy 🙂 ) Anyway, a number of people said that they were only going to make their chicken salad this way from now on. That made me feel pretty good about my mismatched ingredients. So, I just had to share with you.
In a large bowl, combine halved purple grapes, chopped apple, chopped sweet onion, and dried cranberries.
Add shredded/chopped chicken, mayonnaise or plain yogurt and curry powder. Toss well to combine.
Cut croissant in half and place some spring greens on the bottom half. Top with a generous helping of the chicken filling and then top half of the croissant.
I hope you enjoy them.
- 2 chicken breasts, cooked cooled and finely chopped (here I used three cans of chicken)
- 1 cup purple grapes, halved
- 1 sweet onion, chopped
- 2 medium apples, chopped
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/4 - 1/2 tsp curry powder
- Lettuce/spring greens
- Croissant rolls
- Add all ingredients into a large bowl. Toss to combine.
- Refrigerate 6 hours, or until ready to use.
- Slice croissant roll in half. Place lettuce on bottom half. Spread chicken filling (about half a cup) over the lettuce. Top with the other half of croissant roll.
- This can be made into a salad by chopping the lettuce into the filling, after it has been refrigerated, and tossing well.
