Step by Step Instructions
- Mix up the tangy dressing part of the sandwich filling first.
- Measure the mayo, ginger, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce in a large mixing bowl and whisk together.
- Get out a cutting board to slice, dice and chop up the chicken, celery, green onions and grapes.
- Add the chopped cooked chicken, crisped and crumbled bacon, crunchy celery, green onions...
- ....peas and cut grapes to a large bowl.
- Mix well and feel free to season with a little salt and black pepper if you would like.
- You can prepare the croissant sandwiches and serve immediately or you can store the filling in the fridge a day before you plan to use it. I personally like to make mine at least a few hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend.
- However, DO NOT fill the croissants ahead of time because they will get soggy.
- Cut the croissants in half and spoon chicken salad filling onto each flaky croissant!
- Store leftover chicken salad in an airtight container in the fridge.
