Waldorf Chicken Salad Mini Croissant Sandwiches


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!

Enjoy!
