Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I love chicken salad croissant sandwiches, especially in the summer when I want a delicious meal where I don’t have to turn on the oven and heat up my house.

The first time I tried these chicken salad croissant sandwiches, a friend of mine had made them for a luncheon after her baby was blessed. I liked them so much that I ate four of them because they tasted so good! I’ve made this recipe many times now for my family and friends, and they love them too.

This recipe is perfect for a summer BBQ, picnic, or a family and friend gathering. Keep in mind with this recipe that it’s best to prepare it a day ahead, so the flavors have time to meld together in the refrigerator.

There are many variations of chicken salad sandwiches, but what makes this recipe unique and taste so good is the sauce. The fresh dill, juiced lemon and Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix create a flavorful chicken sandwich recipe. And the chicken is cooked in the crock pot with the ranch dressing seasoning mix, which also gives the chicken more flavor.

Here’s how to make the chicken salad croissant sandwiches:

Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwiches

First, prepare the chicken in advance by placing about 4 chicken breasts in a crock pot. Pour a one ounce packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix over the top. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Drain and shred the chicken, and place it in a large bowl.

Next, cut up the celery, grapes and green onions. Place them in the bowl with the chicken. Toss to combine, and set the bowl aside.

In a small bowl, make the sauce by mixing together the mayonnaise, sour cream, 1 teaspoon dry ranch salad dressing & seasoning mix, fresh chopped dill, juiced lemon, salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the chicken mixture and stir until combined.

Cover and refrigerate about 6 hours or overnight.

Serve the chicken salad on croissant rolls.

I hope you enjoy this chicken salad as much as my family and I do!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup with 4-Ingredient Noodles

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

We’ve had a few cold days over the past few weeks, so yesterday I decided to make Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup with the 4-Ingredient Homemade Noodles.

This is a family favorite! It tastes better than canned soup, and it’s an inexpensive meal to make for the whole family. Not only do we love to eat this on cold days to warm up, but we also make it if someone in our family is sick. It’s just one of those meals that tastes good and you can sip down when you don’t feel well.

I love to make the homemade noodles with this chicken noodle soup. I’ve heard so many people say “Isn’t it hard to make the noodles?” or “Don’t I need to purchase a pasta roller?” And the answer is no, it isn’t hard, and it’s actually so easy to make. I do my noodles the old fashioned way that my mom taught me. After making and rolling out the dough, I just slice the dough into thin slices.
