Chicken Salad Croissant




Oh my!  I found this recipe for chicken salad in Cuisine magazine and it is so fantastically, delicious.  It’s got everything you want in a good chicken salad.  It has a nice tanginess from the yogurt and lemon juice, sweetness from the dried cranberries (original recipe used dried cherries), and crunch from the celery and almonds.  Place all of this on a buttery croissant and your tastebuds will be doing the happy dance! 

This recipe doesn’t have to destroy your diet, just skip the croissant (which of course I did not) and the mayo, or at least use a lighter version and it will be much more figure friendly.

This is a great classic chicken salad to have on hand.  I will be making this one often!  ENJOY friends!



4 cups chopped rotisserie chicken

1 cup diced celery

1/2 cup dried cranberries or cherries

1/4 cup mayonaisse

1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp fresh tarragon, minced

1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds, cashews or pistachios)

4 croissants

Mix all ingredients together.  Chill until ready to serve.  Serve on croissants.

This recipe slightly adapted from Cuisine magazine.
