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.

  5. 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  6. 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  9. Lettuce/spring greens
  10. Croissant rolls
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients into a large bowl. Toss to combine.
  2. Refrigerate 6 hours, or until ready to use.
  3. 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.
