Chicken in Mustard and Capers Cream Sauce Recipe

Chicken in Mustard and Capers Cream Sauce, this shredded chicken sandwich will become one of your favorites! Not only you get to use left over chicken but it's creamy sauce makes the appealing to young and old1
Hola Amigos! This one is an after school snack for little ones! Mine loves chicken, everything creamy and sandwiches on soft flaky bread are among his best friends. Put it all together and you have a happy kid and a mom with enough time to plan for dinner without stress.

Super easy recipe, could be done with leftover rotisserie chicken or with the lonely chicken breast left on the package after you have cooked that big meal ( for some crazy reason I always have 1 seasoned piece of chicken left from the family package).

If you don't have any croissants available, no problem I used them because they were out of our favorite Honey Buttermilk Biscuits at the store. My little one is crazy about them and this chicken goes great with them.
Chicken in Mustard and Capers Cream Sauce, this is the creamiest chicken sandwich you have ever had! With a bit of Mediterranean flavor, it could be made with leftover chicken and if this is the case lunch or dinner will be made in less than 30 minutes. How about that for a great chicken sandwich!

And last but not least if you are wondering what role the capers play, well they are that little note of saltiness and tangy flavor on the creamy sauce, just like olives. Who would have thought a 5 year old would do the happy dance every time he bites into one? he picks the mushrooms out of his pizza, but loves capers, go figure.

This is one of my favorite recipes for using leftover chicken since I'm all about using everything and on of my guys's favorite for lunch or light dinner! Everybody happy. Hope you are too when you try it at your home. Remember  my friends,everything tastes better with a Pinch Of Love!

Besitos,
Lizy

These are really good, I guess next time I will have to make a bigger batch and buy more croissants! Thank You (p.s, buy the tine jars, they are like a $1.50 you won't feel too bad if you don't use them all!)

  4. Mmmmm, looks like yet another winner! I'm making cold chicken salad on croissants for my daughter to serve at a baby shower she's hosting tomorrow. After seeing this, I'm picking up extra bread so I can try these too.
    Am also entering a phase in my life where I actually have time to try - not just drool over! - your recipes and want you to know that the cherry ice cream blender smoothie you featured several months ago is FABULOUS!
