We served these last night at my sister's bachelorette party. They are always a hit! It is super easy and quick, which is good, because it seems like hours go by as minutes when preparing for a party. The only thing to remember when making this is, everyones taste is different, so when mixing together your ingredients, add a little and then taste. I personally like more walnuts, and less celery, but customize this recipe to your personal preference. If you like a ton of grapes, like my mom, then add a little more grapes. If you don't like celery, then add a little less. There is really no way to mess this recipe up, so play around with it a little and find what you like best.
- 20 croissants
- 7 cooked chicken breasts, or three whole cooked chickens
- 1 cup mayo
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2-3/4 cup chopped walnuts
- Half a large purple onion, chopped
- 1 cup purple grapes, cut in half
- pinch of salt and pepper
Take your cooked chicken and pull apart into strips. To cook you can bake or boil, or buy precooked, just let it cool down before you mix with ingredients (If baking, set oven to 350 degrees and bake chicken breast for about 25 minutes). In a large bowl combined mayo, sour cream, salt and pepper. Add chicken, celery, walnuts, onion, and halved grapes. Stir until evenly coated. Place in a container and refrigerate until time to serve.
20 minutes before serving, cut croissants 3/4 the way through and fill with chicken salad. Thats it!! Enjoy :)
