Equipment

Ingredients

  • (2) 8 ounce cans, crescent rolls
  • 1 pound cooked shredded chicken
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened Note 1
  • 1 green onion, diced
  • 1 small green pepper, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons milk Note 2
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a baking sheet by either spraying with non-stick spray or placing a sheet of parchment paper on the baking sheet, set aside.
  • Open the cans of crescent rolls, and lay out the dough. The croissants come in triangles, but you will want to turn them into rectangles. Pinch 2 of the triangles together. You may need to flip the other side and pinch as well.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded cooked chicken, cream cheese, chopped green onion, diced green pepper, unsalted butter, milk, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • Place ¼ cup of the chicken mixture into the center each prepared crescent rectangle. Take each corner of the roll and bring it to the center, over the chicken. They will form small bundles. Repeat this process for all the crescents.
  • Place the prepared crescents on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, the crescents will be golden brown.
  • Remove and serve.

Notes

Note 1: Use either full fat, low-fat, or neufatel cheese. I don't use fat-free as it doesn't add the same flavor to the sauce.
Note 2: Use you favorite milk, full-fat, 1%, or 2%.
