Barbecue Chicken Salad

A favorite summer pasta salad… fast and easy too.  It’s a great way to use up leftover chicken breast.  We always grill a few extra chicken breasts, just to make this salad!   Feel free to substitute or leave out any fruits you don’t care for or don’t have on hand.

Kylie’s Delight

Definitely worth splurging on croissants. :)  Fast and easy sandwiches, for busy summer evenings!  We love them for breakfast, too.  The original recipe is from All Recipes.  

Kylie's Ham Delights   

1 pound thinly sliced cooked ham
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple
5 slices Swiss or provolone cheese
5 large plain croissants

Combine ham and pineapple (undrained) in skillet. Sauté over medium heat until most of the pineapple juice has cooked off. Separate mixture into 5 sections in skillet and place one slice of cheese on top of each; cook until cheese melts. Serve on the croissants.

Enjoy!
