Cranberry Chicken Salad

I had this the other night at our mom's monthly planning meeting for co-op, and it was so yummy I put it on the menu! I love chicken and I love cranberry - so this was a tasty treat. I am not sure how the rest of my family will like it - we are sort of eating in shifts tonight. I gotta get back to work - but thought I would share the recipe.

2 cups chunked cooked chicken
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 large croissants, split
4 lettuce leaves (optional)

In a large bowl, combine chicken, mayonnaise, walnuts, cranberries, salt and black pepper; mix well. Spread equally over croissants and add a leaf of lettuce to each, if desired. Serve immediately.

We at ours on homemade bread - and it was equally as yummy.
