Directions

Spoon 1/4 the chicken mixture onto each dough rectangle. Roll dough over the filling and pinch seams closed. Place onto a baking sheet.

I love this recipe. I skip the onions tho and add fresh spinach into the cheese mixture. You really can play a lot with what you add in the filling... Endless options!

I cooked the the chicken with butter after marinating it with Dijon dressing, a small amount of ranch, about two cloves of garlic, and creole seasoning, I cooked the mixture into the chicken. Then followed the recipe. I used garlic bread crumbs on top and it turned out amazing. I think next time I will use 2 crescent packages and make smaller rolls instead of pockets because the crescent roll exterior seems too thin to support the heavy mixture inside.

I've been making this recipe for years and it is a family favorite. It is difficult to get the seams entirely sealed shut with so much filling in them, so I finally started using two cans of crescents with one recipe of the chicken filling. I also skip the butter and crumbs on the top. I find that making sure that the crescents stay refrigerated until the last minute makes them easier to handle and seal as well. I even leave the second roll of crescents in the frig until I'm ready for them. This makes a really quick meal if you use canned chicken breast as well--two 5 oz. cans is perfect. I'm not a huge fan of canned chicken, but with the other ingredients added to this dish, it works well. I also seal mine by bringing the opposite corners up to each other more like a pinwheel. I like that presentation better--but that's just personal preference ;) This is not the healthiest meal I make, but I just don't make it all the time. My family is always happy when they see it on the table though!

We have this frequently and the kids love it. We add 1 can of cream of chicken soup to the filling, and use a complete package of cream cheese instead of 1/3 pkg. We also brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle on crushed garlic/cheddar croutons and parmesan cheese before baking. We bake per crescent can baking times and temps until golden brown. Serve it up with some chicken Rice A Roni and a veggie and you have it made!

Super tasty, but not very filing for the huge calorie load. We skipped the crumbs on top and swapped dried chives for the minced onions.

I'm a super health freak! I use low fat cream cheese or Neufchâtel cheese instead of regular cream cheese. Also, I use low fat crescent rolls...and I make a can of cream of mushroom soup and use it like a gravy. Just put a little on the piece you get and you're good to go! I don't use the bread crumbs...but very yummy!
