How much chicken salad for 60 mini croissants
Debbe

I am doing a baby shower luncheon on Sunday at 1 p.m. for 55-60 women. We are having fruit, macaroni salad, chips and dip along with cake and cake pops. Our entree will be chicken salad on mini croissants. Our local store carries chicken salad in 5 lb tubs. My question is how many lbs do I need for mini croissants? How many sandwiches do women normally eat at a shower? Also, if I should decide to make my own chicken salad (if I have time) and only wanted chicken, celery, grapes, mayo and a few spices, then how much of each would I need for that many people?

5 pounds is at least 10 cups- can be as much as 16, depending on additions.

Make at least 100 croissant. The rest of the menu is carb heavy, so not all ladies will eat 2.

Each cup of filling will make about 6 sandwiches.

Usually, 1 pound of boneless chicken meat makes just short of 4 cups of salad- about 1 cup mayo, 1 cup celery, 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley. If you add grapes, cut them, add about 1/2 cup and reduce celery.

If this saves you time trouble or money, please make a donation to support the site. Thank you.
