So my Hubby is a CPA and this time of year his firm is hopping with tax returns! During this season I always make lunch on Fridays for the wonderful people who work with and for him. Last Friday I made little sandwiches filled with a version of Waldorf Salad. Since all the girls wanted the recipe, I decided to blog it for them. I did end up using an ingredient I had never used before. Needing to make 20 of these little gems and finding that one whole rotisserie chicken wasn’t enough I went to my Covid cupboard and pulled out some canned chicken I had purchased at Sam’s Club. I was hesitant to use them since I have never used canned chicken before, but was surprised how well they enhanced and stretched the salad. I love happy accidents!
Waldorf Chicken Salad
1 whole rotisserie chicken
2 12.5 oz canned chicken
2 cups quartered seedless red grapes
1 Honey Crisp apple diced
3 scallions finely sliced
1/2 celery heart finely diced
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup (+) mayonnaise
1/2 cup (+) sour cream
3 Tbs red wine vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
20 mini croissants
Remove the chicken from the rotisserie and dice it all into bite-sized pieces. Drain the cans of chicken and add them. Add the fruit, nuts, scallions and celery. Stir in the mayonnaise, sour cream and vinegar. Generously season with salt & pepper and mix to combine. If you think it is not wet enough, add a little more of the mayonnaise and sour cream. Add heaping spoons full to the croissants and serve… Delicious!

Beautiful! They remind me of the little croissants my mom used to make for wedding and baby showers. She made a variety: chicken, ham, and egg salads!
