Curried Chicken Salad Croissant: Cafe Chew

Course: Sandwiches


  • 6-8 Croissants *Several local artisan bakeries make great croissants, including PB Boulangerie Bistro in Wellfleet, Pain D’Avignon in Hyannis, and Maison Villate in Falmouth.
  • 8 cups Fresh chopped chicken meat
  • 1 cup Major Grey’s Chutney or substitute with 1 cup applesauce and 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cups White raisins
  • Mayonnaise
  • 4-8 tbsp Curry powder


  • Cover raisins with boiling water to plump and set aside.
  • Puree chutney in food processor until smooth. Place chicken in large bowl and top with pureed chutney. Drain raisins, wringing out excess water, and add to bowl. Add 4 tablespoons curry powder.
  • Toss together with the mayonnaise because the chutney and raisins add moisture. Add mayonnaise a little at a time and continue to toss until it’s as moist as you like—you will not need a lot. Taste, and add more curry powder and/or brown sugar to your liking. Fills 6-8 croissants.
