Chicken & Cheese Crescent Pockets
I’m always looking for new recipes to try out on my little family…however, I’m not up for any old recipe, it must meet one small parameter. New recipes MUST always be EASY. So, when I was chatting with one of my favorite girls in the world and she told me she was cooking these easy chicken pouches for dinner, I had to know what they entailed.
After her description I knew this creamy filling would be a win with my family. This recipe is great with left over chicken or even pieces of rotisserie chicken, there is no need to cook up chicken each time your make this recipe just use leftovers (however, you definitely can). It’s really a great weeknight meal.
- 1 Can of Crescent Rolls (I get mine at Trader Joes)
- 1/2 lb of shredded or diced chicken
- 1/3 a bar of cream cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- Spoonful of Greek yogurt or sour cream
- 1 egg white
- Salt & Pepper
- 1. Cook/shred your chicken...if you want to throw it in the skillet with some onion and garlic it will add some great additional flavor
- 2. In a bowl mix shredded chicken, cream cheese, yogurt or sour cream, shredded cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
- 3. Open up the can of crescent rolls and separate into groups of two on a baking sheet. Lay the two pieces together so that they make a rectangle and pinch the seam together (see picture below)
- 4. Spoon chicken mixture on to half of each crescent rectangle.
- 5. Fold crescent roll over the chicken mixture and seal with a fork.
- 6. Brush each side with egg white
- 7. Bake on 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Flip half way through.
- 8. ENJOY!
- Use your creativity when deciding what exactly you put inside your crescent!
The best thing about this recipe is you can really mix up what you decide to put inside the crescent pocket. I’m looking forward to making pizza pockets soon! Pretty much like a homemade calzone. Hope Chickadee will like those as much as she like these chicken crescent pockets!
So, what would you put inside yours?
