Description

These have a rich, creamy garlic chicken mixture inside a croissant and then they are baked to form yummy puffs. A big crowd pleaser and great for gatherings!

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ cups Cooked, Shredded Chicken
  • 2 cans (8 Oz. Can) Refrigerator Crescent Rolls

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix cream cheese, garlic and chicken in a medium sized bowl until well blended.

Unroll crescent rolls and cut each triangle into 2 triangles. (When you unroll the crescent rolls, 2 triangles are attached, making a big square. You can just cut from there, following the perforation for one cut, and make another cut from the other corners, giving you 4 little triangles.)

Place 1 teaspoon of chicken mixture in the center of each triangle and fold the corners in over the creamy mixture.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 F for 12-14 minutes. Mine were actually ready in about 11 minutes, so watch how your oven cooks.

I used 2 cookie sheets at a time, and had to bake 3 batches to get all of mine baked (so allow for that time if you’re making a lot).

Notes:

For cooked chicken, I buy those big bags of frozen chicken tenderloins. I just threw 6 of them on a cookie sheet and baked them for about 25 minutes.

I doubled this recipe to take to a family party.

I made this tonight and they were DELICIOUS! As a bonus they are extremely easy to make as well! I halved the garlic powder and added a tsp basil and a dash of oregano. I will definitely be adding these to my go-to recipes.

These were a hit at a shower I threw last night! The only thing I would do differently next time is use about half the garlic powder. They got nicknamed Dracula puffs!!

I made these this weekend for a gathering and my friends really liked them. I followed dillydolly’s comments and only put in about half the amount of garlic powder, which I think was plenty. I found that I didn’t have enough of the chicken mixture when I was putting 1t into each triangle. Seeing that this was going to happen, I went ahead and put more than that in them anyway b/c they looked kind of emty and I’m really glad I did. There was a definite difference between the puffs that had 1t and the ones that had more. The mixture was much less noticeable in the smaller ones, as there was a much larger croissant to mix ratio. Overall, I would make these again with those adjustments. Thank you for the recipe!

These were so easy and went over so well! My only comment would be to watch the amount of garlic. Next time I will add half the amount and taste before adding any more.

Thanks for a great recipe!
