Fabulous Chicken Salad
We all LOVE chicken salad on croissants in my house. Over the years, and with my children and husband as my taste-testers, I have come up with this recipe which has a secret ingredient that adds a great taste… curry powder!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a wonderful chicken salad. Apple and grapes add freshness to the dish. We love the addition of coleslaw mix to the salad. It adds a touch of sweetness and makes the chicken salad extra creamy. This would be perfect for a light lunch or snack.
