Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches

Years ago, when I  ran a Bed & Breakfast Inn, I catered luncheons, banquet dinners and wedding receptions. One of the favorite luncheons was this recipe for tasty Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches. The chicken salad is easy to make, especially if you use ready-made rotisserie chicken!  Just put it together a few hours before serving to let the flavors come together. This is a delicious Chicken Salad!

This recipe will make 2 sandwiches (you can double or triple it for how ever many servings you need.)

1 cup diced, rotisserie cooked chicken*

1/2 cup diced celery

3-4 green onion tops (you can use the white part too if you like a stronger flavor)

1/4 c. slivered almonds

1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning  (available in the spices aisle or on

1/3 – 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Stir the first 5 ingredients together

Then add the mayonnaise.

Refrigerate several hours before serving. Serve on a sliced Croissant Roll with some green ruffle lettuce!

I have also used this same chicken salad recipe to make delicious wraps!

    What an absolutely beautiful chicken salad, the almonds and celery are a wonderful combination and enhances the taste of the chicken. We are going to use your recipe for our dieting group over the memorial day weekend. Chicken salad is great for weight loss.

    Thanks for the recipe! I made these today for weekly lunches but added a nice slice of old cheddar. The flavors worked great. Delicious!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

      Okay, I think I found the answer for you. If you go to the bottom of the email, there is a place where you can click “unsubscribe.” That should do it! Sorry for the hassle!

    Add some fun with some green grapes halved. Also, is there any dish that cheese doesn’t improve? I added a little Colby/jack shredded. Thanks for the post.

    The only thing I do differently is grind my chicken, leave out the almonds and instead of bay seasoning, I use red and black pepper. And I usually add bell peppers and celery. Thanks for ur recipe.
