Lauren's Baptism Brunch

In mid-March, Madison and I drove to New Jersey to visit my friend, Erin and her family.  We went to celebrate Erin's daughter's baptism.  I helped Erin with the food and cupcakes for the event.

Erin and I worked on the menu and in the end we served the following to the guests -

buttermilk pancakes, French toast wedges in a cup, chicken salad croissant sandwiches (recipe to follow), turkey and mozzarella croissant sandwiches, fruit salad, sausage breakfast casserole, bagels with cream cheese, cheeseball with crackers, strawberry and French vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting, orange juice and lemonade.

My chicken salad recipe is pretty simple.

Ingredients -

-2 cans white meat canned chicken OR 3-4 cooked and diced boneless chicken breasts
-1 cup chopped celery
-1/2 cup mayonaise
-1 small cup plain Greek yogurt
-salt and pepper to taste

Directions -

Mix all together, chill for several hours or overnight.  Serve on your choice of bread.  I prefer using the diced boneless skinless chicken breasts, but Erin enjoys it with the canned chickek; so it's all about what you prefer.

You did such a fabulous job! I cannot say that enough. Not to mention I've probably eaten your chicken salad every day for lunch for the last three weeks. It was SO great to see you and Maddie! Love you!
