Cran-Apple Walnut Chicken Salad

This was a game changer. I love my original version with cheese and bacon. I mean bacon. But I wanted something lighter and just a little healthier.

This was a huge hit with the family, and I was lucky enough that they saved me a bite to try it. I’m not kidding! I couldn’t even get a full sandwich. They ate almost everything! They did graciously leave me enough for a half sandwich.

I love the sweet-tart combination from the cranberries and the crunch from the apples and walnuts. The flaky croissants would have been a nice touch if they had saved me any. No, I am not annoyed about that. J I am just glad that I can trick them into eating a little healthier without them noticing. Did I mention there is only two steps in making this. So easy kids can make it!!
