Description

This is a very simple recipe that stuffs crescent rolls with a cheesy combination of chicken, cream cheese, onion, and spices.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Chicken Breasts
  • 1 can (8 Oz. Can) Crescent Rolls
  • 1 cup Shredded Colby Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 3 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ¼ cups Diced White Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • ¼ teaspoons Seasoned Salt
  • Pepper To Taste
  • Paprika

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook the chicken, either by baking or boiling it, and cut it into cubes.

Combine the cream cheese, onion, milk, 1 tablespoon of butter, and seasoned salt and mix well. Add the chicken and shredded cheese and mix until chicken is well coated. Add pepper to taste.

Prepare the crescent rolls to make four squares. Fill each square with the chicken-cheese mixture. Bring all four corners together over chicken-cheese mixture and pinch until closed.

Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and spread over the crescents rolls. Sprinkle with paprika.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

I made these over the weekend, and they were absolutely delicious! In case this helps anyone, although the serving size says 4, between my fiance and I, we ate all four (granted my fiance ate a leftover half later in the evening). Altogether though, this will definitely be one of my “go-to” meals. Thanks for sharing!

I made this the other night, and they turned out really great! It’s a rich main dish, so I suggest serving with lighter sides. It was pretty easy for the inexperienced, and has ingredients that I always have on hand. One suggestion is to put in cream cheese and butter first, microwave it for 1 minute or so, and then add everything else. It makes it easier to stir

I made a few changes basically dealing with what I had on hand. Used the sheet crescent rolls cut into 4 pieces. Used leftover garden veggie spreadable cream cheese so omitted the butter and milk inside. Used 2 cups leftover chicken chopped. This was enough chicken to fill the pouches well but I didn’t have to struggle to seal them. And added 1 tablespoon chopped chives also. These were easy to whip together and could lead to endless variations of cheese type used and adding veggies as some suggested! Next time I will add some chopped sweet red pepper.

Easy and delicious! A manly meal and a great option for less “I-Need-Meat” women!

My husband couldn’t stop raving about these and he is not usually very vocal about my cooking! I will absolutely be making these again and again!

These were really good. I added frozen mixed veggies, a little green enchilada sauce, and a little cream of chicken to the chicken and cheese mixture. Really yummy!!

These were really good! Very easy and quick, I had a hard time keeping the crescent dough together as I was folding, but it all baked together very nicely.
