So far since my mom has been here we haven't done much cooking. We took the little one to the park to play in the water fountains, and have visited a few of my very favorite stores. Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn. Look how cute this Mason Jar Drink Dispenser is that my mom bought from Pottery Barn.
So Cute, Right?!!!! Anyhow, I did however make up some of my ALL TIME favorite chicken salad sandwiches. Even though they have Mayo in them, I think that they are a perfect summertime meal too.
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (diced)
1/2 cup mayonaise
1/8-1/4 cup heavy cream
2 green onions (diced, white and green parts)
1 cup red seedless grapes (sliced in half)
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
(I seasoned the chicken breasts with lemon pepper before baking. Adds a great flavor to the sandwich)
12 mini croissants or 6 large ones
Preheat the oven to *375. Season the defrosted chicken well with lemon pepper. Bake for 30-35 minutes or till no longer pink. Dice into bite sized pieces. In a large bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, mayo, heavy cream, grapes, green onions, and almonds. Mix in the diced chicken and stir till well combined. Scoop a couple of Tbsp. of chicken salad onto a sliced croissant. You can also top with lettuce and tomato.
