Light Chicken Salad

Creamy, peppery chicken salad on a light buttery croissant is a key to happiness in my opinion. However, I’ve been watching what I eat with a trip to the beach coming soon. So, I thought chicken salad was out of the question. A friend recommended this recipe for a lighter version of chicken salad, and I couldn’t wait to try it. This recipe has four servings and only 176 calories per serving! I didn’t have any croissants on hand, but I did have more of the bagel thins from this recipe last week. My sandwich was a total of 286 calories. But don’t worry. I plan on picking up some croissants tomorrow.

Did you know chickens are fed high-protein grains like corn and soy?
