Pesto Chicken Salad

If you love pesto, and you love chicken salad, you MUST try this recipe!!! It is delicious...I could eat it every week. Thanks Paula Dean!!


Pesto Chicken Salad

3 cups chopped cooked chicken

6 tablespoons chopped walnuts

6 tablespoons mayonnaise

3 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper (I left this out)

3 tablespoons pesto

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For sandwiches:

6 croissants, split in half

6 slices tomato

6 lettuce leaves

In a small bowl, combine chicken, walnuts, mayonnaise, red bell pepper, pesto, salt, and pepper.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
To assemble sandwiches, spread chicken salad mixture over bottom halves of croissants. Top with tomato slices, lettuce, and top halves of croissants.

Yes, it is that easy and yes, it tastes like something you would order in a tea room! Enjoy! :)
