This recipe yields 6 servings, perfect for a family lunch or gathering with friends.


  • 2 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup halved green grapes
  • 1/3 cup toasted chopped pecans
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup Olive Oil Miracle Whip
  • 6 croissants, split


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, dried cherries, celery, grapes, and pecans. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.
  2. Gently fold in the Olive Oil Miracle Whip until the mixture is well blended but still retains some texture.
  3. Take a split croissant and spoon about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture onto the bottom half. Gently press the top half of the croissant down to secure the filling.
  4. Repeat with the remaining croissants and chicken salad mixture.

How to Prepare

Ensure your chicken is cooked thoroughly and cooled before cubing it to add to the salad. Toasting the pecans lightly in a dry pan will enhance their flavor and add an extra crunch to the salad. When mixing the ingredients, be careful not to overmix to keep the salad light and airy.
