pesto cranberry chicken salad croissants
Another easy recipe for you! These pesto cranberry chicken salad croissants make for a simple and delicious meal that’s ready in just a few minutes. I love serving this chicken salad on croissants because it makes me feel fancy, but it’s great on bread too. The pesto adds so much great flavor, and I love the contrast of textures with the cranberries, chicken, and walnuts. This is always a family favorite and one that I make often. Yum!
Pesto Cranberry Chicken Salad Croissants
2 cups shredded chicken (I used rotisserie chicken)
2/3 cup light mayo
3 tablespoons fresh pesto
3 tablespoons dried cranberries
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
In a medium bowl, mix together the chicken, mayo, and pesto. Add the cranberries and walnuts, and stir to combine. Slice each croissant in half lengthwise and layer a lettuce leaf, then scoop on 1/4 of the chicken salad. Enjoy!
This sounds amazing! I love anything with pesto!
