Chicken Salad Croissants

I think this chicken spread is for a croissant in the same way that butter is for bread. I can not think of anything I would rather enjoy on a soft and flakey croissant. If you are making this for a group of people a rotisserie chicken works well for your meat. In this case, I wanted to make a little different sandwich to pack in our lunches for work so I used canned white chicken breast. (I keep canned chicken breast in my pantry solely for this recipe.) I scooped the chicken salad and placed it between two leaves of lettuce so that my croissant would not get soggy during the day. Give your sack lunch a facelift with this yummy chicken salad croissant!

2 Tbs. shredded cheddar cheese
Drain chicken and shred with a fork in a small bowl. Add onion, seasoning, red pepper, dressing and cheese and mix well. Refrigerate. Serve on croissants, bread or a wrap.
Tip: If you like a little crunch, you could also add a little diced celery.
