Croissant Chicken Salad Sandwich

When lunchtime rolls around, I am uninspired. It’s the one meal that I would be fine with skipping. Our lunches for the week usually rotate between PB&J’s and a sandwich with some kind of lunch meat in it. However, every Friday, I make the Kraft Macaroni for the kids. I know it’s unhealthy garbage, but it is easy and pretty good too. I can always count on Christian eating it as well.

I always have a rotisserie chicken around because I buy one every time we go to Cosco. For $4.99, you can’t really pass the price up.

Since Memorial Day is right around the corner and the usual trend is to grill something-I thought I would offer up an alternative to grilling. Maybe you are getting together with friends in the afternoon for lunch- this lunch is so easy and tasty it would be a shame not to share.

Croissants are the perfect pairing to turn this into an awesome sandwich. It’s light, buttery, and flaky. It’s filling without making you feel like you ate a huge sandwich. Just serve some fruit on the side and lunch is served!

I know what you mean about feeing uninspired when it comes to lunch. I love having left over dinner for lunch, just so there's no work involved! ;) These chicken salad croissants look like the perfect lunch to me! Yum!

Me too! I'm definitely a leftover dinner for lunch kind of girl, but lately, we haven't had a lot of leftovers. I should start cooking more food, haha!
