Curry Chicken Salad Croissants

Oh mensch has this past week been busy, busy! My cute hubby surprised me with a a stay at an Inn for Valentines day plus we celebrated my dad's big 55th birthday and were able to spend some time with my in-laws, sister in law and nieces! It was fun but now I am facing a mountain of work to do at home and school . . . play time is over again! But we had a great weekend so . . . that's okay!
This recipe is easy breezy and just awesome! I love chicken salad on croissants, we seem to make chicken salad for parties, baby/bridal showers, etc. This one is a little pepped up with the addition of curry! I know that my mom would love this! I love the crunch that the celery, green onions, grapes and toasted pecans give to it! I also love adding pineapple slices to top it off or romaine lettuce plus the use of rotisserie chicken is a great time saver!
Curry Chicken Salad
Recipe by: Emily

2-3 lb Rotisserie Chicken
3/4-1 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup diced Celery
2 Green Onions, Diced
1/2-3/4 cup Seedless Red Grapes, sliced in half
1/2 cup Toasted Pecans, chopped
1-1 1/2 tsp Curry Powder
1. Remove the meat from the rotisseries chicken and break into bite sized pieces. Add mayo, celery, green onion, pecans, curry powder, grapes, salt, and pepper. Taste and add additional seasonings to taste. Chill until ready to serve.
I like to serve this salad on croissants topped with pineapple slices or romaine lettuce. Enjoy!

You can also add pineapple tidbits to the salad if desired.
