Hot Chicken Salad

This Hot Chicken Salad recipe is great served on a croissant or bun as a sandwich. I love serving it on the mini croissants but you can use a full size croissant, regular roll, slider bun, sweet hawaiian roll, the options are endless!

The original recipe that Clayton’s family had for this recipe did not include the almonds or craisins but after having a few varieties of this I started to add them and now I can’t make it without adding these two ingredients.

Clayton has been asking me to make these Hot Chicken Salad sandwiches for weeks and when I finally did, he couldn’t wait for me to take a picture and stole one off of my plate that was ready for photos. I kid you not and I have photo proof.
