"My Favorite" Chicken Salad Sandwiches

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.  

Recipe:
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.

  1. LOVE your mason jar dispenser! I just recently bought a dispenser that is nowhere as cute as this but I'm trying to come up with ways to use more often. Your chicken salad looks delicious, too.
