chicken pillow recipe

I have posted this recipe before… but thought I would post it again since I am making it for dinner tonight. Thought you might want a simple dinner idea. This recipe is one that my whole family loves, it is quick and easy to make and comes out delicious every time. IMG_2462 I thought I would pass along one of my favorite ways to use cressent rolls.

  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 8oz cream cheese
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, pepper, garlic powder

You will need one package of crescent rolls,

Mix the items listed above in bowl, and spoon 2 TBS into each crescent roll.

IMG_2453IMG_2456IMG_2457IMG_2455IMG_2458Bake at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes till golden brown.
If you find the triangle  hard to work with you can make larger ones buy using two rolls, in a rectangle shape folded in half.  Just add twice the amount of filling since you are using two rolls.

IMG_2459We eat them with chicken gravy on top.  ( Can of Cream of Chicken soup, thinned down with a little bit of milk)

Hope you enjoy!
