Expert Tips

Use leftover cooked chicken, or purchase chopped cooked chicken from the freezer case in your supermarket.

Microwave cooking makes this chicken salad a really cool choice; croissants offer a fancy wrapper.

For a flavor twist, skip the tomatoes and use mandarin orange segments or cut-up grapes instead.

Directions

  • 1 In blender or food processor, stir in ranch dressing and chipotles. Blend until smooth. Toss chicken, chipotle ranch dressing,cucumber, tomato and cashews. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour or until chilled.
  • 2 Just before serving, spread cut sides of croissant halves with butter. Spread chicken mixture over bottoms of croissants; top with lettuce and tops of croissants.
