    Chicken Salad Croissants

    Source of Recipe

    From "Picnics, Potlucks, and Porch Parties" by Aimee Broussard

    Recipe Introduction

    "A classic picnic staple, chicken salad gets an upgrade by being served on croissants rather than bread. The croissants hold their shape in the refrigerator a little better, allowing them to be prepared ahead of time. Get creative with additions, and consider adding sliced grapes or slivered almonds. I like to add peanuts, but the nuts are entirely optional."

    List of Ingredients

    6 cups chopped cooked chicken
    1 cups mayonnaise
    3 green onions, thinly sliced
    3 stalks celery, diced
    2 tsp lemon juice
    tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp dill weed
    ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
    Salt and black pepper to taste
    cup chopped pecans (optional)
    8 to 10 large croissants, split in half lengthwise


    Stir together chicken and next seven ingredients; salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle in chopped pecans, if desired.

    Spoon mixture over croissant bottoms; replace top. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Serves 8 to 10
