My Mom used to call me a chicken salad connoisseur. Whenever I have the opportunity to make it, I do. If it’s on a menu, I order it. I love chicken salad and have passed that love onto my youngest son. I recently made this apple chicken salad croissant for a weekend lunch.

This apple chicken salad makes a great weekday or weekend lunch.

It was a summer not so long ago that I taught my son to make chicken salad. Now when I make chicken he always asks me to cook an extra chicken breast or two. That way we can have chicken salad for a weekend lunch and he gets practice making it.

We love this chicken salad on croissants but I always have flour tortillas in the house and that’s a nice alternative. You could also make scrumptious lettuce wraps too, but it’s equally delicious on any bread you choose.
