Shred the chicken and dice the celery. Do a good job dicing the celery! Boo on big celery chunks!
Add the chicken, celery, lemon juice, onion powder, salt, and steak seasoning to a large bowl. Combine well, cover, and chill in the fridge for a few hours. At least 2. Overnight works great too.
Add grapes, mandarin oranges, almonds, and mayonnaise. Stir well. At this point you can serve it or chill overnight.
Divide between the split croissants and serve!
