Creamy Chicken Pillows

Let me introduce you to our new favorite chicken dish.  

Chicken in a giant crunchy pillow. Then, drenched in Alfredo sauce. Ah! These are just so darn good!

I've made these a few times, and each time, we liked them even more than the previously time. Therefore, it was time to share them with you, my Internet friends. :)

For real though, these are delicious and really easy to make. The pillow is made up a your basic, refrigerator crescent rolls and the filling is chicken, cream cheese and a few spices.  For the spices, below is what I used. We are a very plain Jane kinda family, but, if you want to add more..go for it. Use your own flavor judgment.  

Dip the pillows in butter, then, breadcrumbs and bake. See?! Simple

They go perfectly with a creamy Alfredo sauce.  However, as mentioned, we are a bit plain Jane and some people in my family eat them without the sauce.  They are still delicious. Again, go with what your own preference. I included a link to our favorite homemade and jarred Alfredo sauce in the recipe ingredients. Both are good..you won't be disappointed. 

On a completely different note..

I just wanted to let you guys know that there will not be a weekly meal plan post this weekend. It's a crazy schedule at my house for the next few days and I won't be around a computer much.  It will be back next week.

Also, if you subscribe to my email updates, first, thank you! (if you don't, click here!) 
Second, you may of noticed the sudden lack of a picture in your email. This is a problem that I'm working hard on fixing. It involves some type of coding and I'm hoping to get it taken care of soon. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I know it's nicer to see a picture of the recipe instead of just a bunch of words, so, as mentioned, it's getting fixed soon.

Enjoy the chicken pillows and have a wonderful weekend!

Prep Time: 00:30
Cook Time: 00:20
Ingredients (8 rolls)
  • 2 packages, refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • salt/pepper, to taste preference
  • 1 tsp minced onion
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
OPTIONAL TOPPING
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a flat rimmed baking sheet with foil, then, lightly spray foil with non stick cooking spray.
In a bowl, mix together chicken, cream cheese, minced onion, chives and salt/pepper. Blend well.
Remove crescent rolls from package and lay flat.
Press two triangles together to create a rectangle. Be sure to press seams together securely, so, no filling will come out when baking.
Repeat with all rolls.
Fill the middle of each rectangle with approx 2-3 TBSP of chicken filling. Bring corners of dough into middle of chicken mixture. Then, fold up around completely, creating a ball. Repeat with remaining rolls.
When completely, dip each chicken pillow into melted butter, then, coat with bread crumbs. Repeat with remaining pillows.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until brown.
Let chicken pillows sit for 5 minutes or so before serving.
If desired, top with Alfredo sauce and additional dried chives.
