You're going to LOVE these Best Chicken Salad Sandwiches! But whatever you do, don't skip the grapes... it's a game changer!pinterestBest Chicken Salad Sandwiches are filled to the brim with sweet grapes, crunchy celery and sliced almonds, with a creamy dressing that’s to die for.

I’ve discovered lately that I’m not as in control of this “mom” thing as I once thought I was.

As my kids are getting older, there are just more learning curves that I am not ready for. Just when I thought I’d mastered the whole “kids” thing, they go and do things like puberty, hormones and attitude.

And what’s worse is that I know exactly what they’re going through, but they don’t believe me!! C’mon man!!


Whatever you do, don't skip the grapes in these Best Chicken Salad Sandwiches!

I guess I know why the baby of the family is always the favorite (I’m the baby of my family 😉 ).

My sweet baby is still just 5 years old, and I find myself mentally picking a favorite when her biggest problem is which book to read for bedtime.

I’m sure I’ll figure it all out eventually. Right?

One thing I definitely know how to do is make one AMAZING Chicken Salad Sandwich.

These sandwiches are so simple, pure, uncomplicated…

The key to the BEST Chicken Salad Sandwiches is in the filling and dressing.

Start with a rotisserie chicken and pull apart the chicken. Red grapes are KEY, but they have to be firm and pop in your mouth when you bite them.

Don’t be afraid to test them at the grocery store, it’s all in the name of science. I think.

The dressing is a combination of mayo and plain greek yogurt with a splash of fresh lemon juice. Season it up with some garlic powder and a little salt and pepper.

So simple, yet SO AMAZING.

Toss the filling with the dressing and place it on top of a fluffy and buttery croissant.

You can find fresh croissants in the bakery section of your grocery store. Mine sells a 4 pack of giant croissants for like $5! If you can’t find croissants, you’ll want to use a nice and soft bread or roll instead.

Here are some fun ways to mix up your Best Chicken Salad Sandwiches:

  • Mix in diced avocado
  • Swap out the almonds for pecans
  • Skip the croissants and pile the chicken salad on top of a bed of greens
  • Swap out the celery for diced cucumbers

Trust me, one bite of this sandwich and you’ll see why they are the best!

    Hi Shawn - the recipe title drew me in but your comment, "I’m sure I’ll figure it all out eventually. Right?" deserves a reply. Not necessarily, BUT, they will eventually grow up to be terrific people. It's a great feeling - even though I sometimes think, "They turned out in spite of me!" :) Sheila

    Thank U for great recipe! However I have a teenage hormonal boy with bad attitude! He is my baby! Yet he is far from my favorite these last few months!
    1. Haha!! I am praying my baby keeps her adorableness as long as possible, but I guess we can never get away from those teenage years. :) Thanks for your comment Kellye!
