Colorful Chicken Croissants

This is what we're having for dinner tonight (if there's any left after all my nibbles).  As you can see from my additions and deletions, this recipe is very flexible and always delicious!  By the way, sometime you should ask Bryant to say "croissants" or "crepes" in his French accent (he's taking French 2 this year).  It sounds so gourmet when he says it!

Colorful Chicken Croissants Recipe

Colorful Chicken Croissants
from Taste of Home's The Busy Family Cookbook
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup golden raisins (I used red grapes)
1/4 cup dried cranberries (I used a can of mandarin oranges, each orange broken in half or thirds)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 T. chopped red onion (I used green)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt, optional
2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast (I used a discounted day-old rotisserie chicken; our deli sells them the next day if they're not sold the first day)
4 croissants, split (I used Rhodes rolls)

In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients and salt if desired.  Stir in the chicken.  Spoon about 1/2 cup into each croissant.  Yield:  4 servings

  1. Is he really taking French? Wow, maybe he'll go French speaking on his mission, since he already has a little experience with the language. What an exciting thing to look forward to.
