Apricot Chicken and Cheddar Croissant Sandwich

Apricot Chicken and Cheddar Croissant Sandwich

Sweet and savory, deliciously easy, and melty cheese! This apricot chicken and cheddar croissant is just perfect for a simple fall meal.

I have to be honest—I mean I did decide to name my blog “Honest and Tasty” after all. I don’t really like my sweet with my savory. I know. This is a sweet and savory recipe post and I’m totally crazy and horrid and should be ashamed of myself.

But it’s true. I secretly hate chocolate covered pretzels and I can’t talk about it in my real life because people will get all judgy and tell me things like I can’t be their friend anymore.
