Curried Chicken Salad

Pin It

This chicken salad has such a great flavor. 

I'ts another one of the recipes my sister and I used when we were catering lunches.


I like it best on a croissant, and if you use the cocktail croissants (which are not that small), 
it's not that high in calories or fat (2 ww pts per croissant).

If you don't use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store or leftovers, take the time to 
roast a couple of chicken breasts. I think it makes for more flavorful meat 
and a better texture than boiling it.


The chicken salad alone only has 7 points for a generous serving, 
but tastes like it would have much more.
There's less than 1/2 serving on each croissant,
so I would figure maybe 4-5 points per sandwich.

Very elegant tasting and great to entertain with.

  2. mmm...I really enjoy sandwiches using croissants - so buttery and good! Your chicken salad recipe looks great! I never to add raisins to a chicken salad like this and I find this to be a wonderful idea! I love combining meat with fruit for added sweetness and texture. Looks wonderful!

  4. Miracle Whip, is it important to the flavor of the dressing, or can I use mayo instead?

    1. I think mayo would work. I like a slight tang and just a hint of sweetness, so depending on your taste, you may want to up the vinegar and sugar just a tad. Give it a try, you can always adjust it if needed. Let me know how you like it :)
