In a medium to large mixing bowl, combine 15 oz. chunked chicken, 1/2 cup
chopped celery, 1/2 cup halved grapes, 1/4 cup chopped pecans, and 1/2 cup mayonnaise. Stir until well-combined. Split a croissant in half horizontally. If desired, broil the cut sides of the croissant to keep them from absorbing the chicken salad filling. Now, place a couple of fresh lettuce leaves on the bottom half of the croissant, put a generous amount of chicken salad on top of the lettuce, and cap it off with the top half of the croissant. Continue until your materials are used up. As an alternative, you may place lettuce leaves on a serving plate, and place a large mound of chicken salad on top. If you have any pecan crumbles left, sprinkle them on top. Place a fresh, hot croissant alongside. This is just *one* way to make chicken salad. It is also great if you substitute pineapple, chopped dates, raisins, etc., in place of the grapes! You can make this a *very* healthy dish, if you choose, because *you* have control of exactly what goes in it!!!
