New Thing #86: Chicken Salad On A Croissant

Chicken_SaladIt's time for a little Dunkin' Donuts love. For a little over a year now (I think) they've had some lunch sandwiches to go along with their breakfast sandwiches.

I think at some point I had the ham and cheese and the grilled cheese.

I figured those weren't such a huge leap for a breakfast place that offers similar sandwiches on the breakfast menu.

I love chicken salad, though, and I was always curious how it would be at Dunkin' Donuts.

So on Saturday, I tried it.

Unless otherwise specified, the chicken salad comes on a croissant.

So there's two levels here of what I enjoyed - first of all, the chicken salad was great. It was the right consistency - not too thin, not too thick.

Then, the combo with the croissant was really tasty.

I never really think of croissants as bread for sandwiches - now, I've decided, it's worth considering.

Dunkin' Donuts for breakfast is a once-a-week deal at my house. (It used to be much more often for me, but I've really come to value getting up early enough to have my eggs in the really sets me up to have a good day. If I don't, I get a headache and start to lose steam earlier in the day than the days I do have a good breakfast.)

Dunkin' Donuts for lunch is definitely not going to get the once-a-week treatment.

But it is nice to know that when I'm in a bind, which happens sometimes in the summer, I have an alternative to pizza for a quick lunch that I'll enjoy.

And I can get a coffee to boot.
