Fully Loaded Chicken Salad Sandwich

Easy Weeknight Meals, Must Make

I’m not the biggest fan of store bought chicken salad but, homemade chicken salad? On a buttery, lightly toasted croissant? Fully loaded with avocado, lettuce, bacon and mayo? I could eat this sandwich all summer long!

It turns out I have deep feelings when it comes to brining this sandwich together. I share my “opinions” here in this episode of The Cook’s Channel 👇

Units Scale


  • Rotisserie chicken (or 3 cups shredded chicken)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions, sliced

For serving:

  • Bacon
  • Avocado
  • Slices of sharp cheddar cheese
  • Fresh lettuce
  • Croissants



  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix to combine! You can make this a day ahead. Will last in the refrigerator for up to one week.

To assemble:

  1. Lightly toast croissant (I like to cut the croissant in half and toast it in my toaster oven at 375 degrees for about 3 minutes).
  2. Add 2-3 scoops of chicken salad to one side of the croissant.
  3. Add lettuce, a slice of sharp cheddar cheese, bacon (I cook my bacon in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes), and smashed avocado. Enjoy!
