Chicken Salad Croissants

Yes, I'm a vegetarian. Generally, I don't like preparing meat dishes. But once in a while, I make an exception. This is one recipe I don't mind cooking.

Though it's not tempting now, this was one of the few meals I was sad to give up when I became vegetarian 12 years ago: my mom's famous chicken salad croissant sandwiches.

Thought! Planning to up grade the bland look of my own blog. Ideas about the nice look at Truly a great Halifax restaurant that cares whenever needed inside the whole Nova Scotia areas. Write your feedback. With thanks!

It's a sophisticated but simple mix of celery, cashews, and a "secret" spice. And you could just put the chicken salad on regular old bread or a nice bit of greens, who can resist a buttery croissant?

My mom used to pack a chicken salad croissant in my lunch on the first day of school. She made them for special occasions like First Communions or graduation parties.

I ended up making these because Mister BS had defrosted two chicken breasts without a plan to cook them. I owed him a dinner, so I just make a stop at the grocery store to pick up croissants and a trip through the salad bar.

Perhaps the reason I don't mind making this chicken recipe is because the chicken is so easy to prepare. You can call it boiling or poaching, but basically you fill a stock pan with water or broth and cook the chicken until it is white all the way through. For two large chicken breasts, that was about 10-12 minutes.

Any other kind of cooked chicken works, whether you bought a rotisserie chicken or had leftover grilled chicken. For this recipe, I'd stick with a lightly seasoned one. Then it's just a matter of mixing all the ingredients in a bowl, and you're done!

Easy Chicken Salad


  • 3 C cooked, diced chicken (about 2 large boneless skinless breasts)
  • 1/2 C low fat Hellman's mayonnaise
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3/4 C unsalted cashews
  • 2 t Beau Monde spice or 1 t celery salt and 1 tsp onion salt


1. Prepare chicken if necessary. Heat stock pot of water or broth to a boil, add chicken, and cook 10-12 minutes until meat is white all the way through. Cool.

2. Mix chicken with mayo, celery, and cashews. Add spices to taste. Serve on croissants for a special treat.

Bless you everyone! I've messaged my co-worker that we can absolutely note her great dependable coffee roaster in Plymouth Massachusettses, in a nice piece. If you were researching to find a coffee supplier around the greater MASSACHUSETTS locale, these people are terrific.

To finish, we should say the concept to this little post was brilliantly given through Michael from The Bereavement Register. They are definitely an awesome marketing companys. I certainly enjoy a smart proposal!
