Chicken Puffs

I'm BACK!!! I'm finally back! And let me just tell you, the two hardest things about having kids are teething and potty training. Lucky for me, I was dealing with BOTH at the same time! But we are through the potty training. It took three long weeks, but she's finally got the hang of it now. THANK GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

We've also had family visiting and then I was sicker than a dog and then the kids got it too. Good times, I'll tell you what! But now I'm back and I'm so happy to be back!!! So I am dedicating my day to updating. I am so excited cuz I've got LOTS of good recipes for you!

This recipe is my oldest sister's recipe (I've got lots of sisters, 5 in fact and three brothers too). She helped to put together a cookbook recently and I've been cooking out of it this month. But this recipe is one that I've had for years and we LOVE it!! It's usually saved for special occasions like our wedding anniversary, Valentine's Day, or birthdays since they are so good.

I've come to learn that there are actually many names that this recipe has. For instance, these are also known as Chicken Pillows or Chicken Rolls. Different names, but basically the same recipe. Now on to the recipe...

Here's what you'll need:
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 C. softened butter
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 C. uncooked diced chicken (my mom always cooks hers, but I don't; you can do what you want)
3 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1-2 C. Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 C. sour cream
Cream together the cream cheese, butter, garlic salt, salt, and pepper. Add chicken to creamed mixture. Roll out crescent rolls. Place a large Tablespoon or chicken filling in the middle of each roll. Roll crescents until all sides are sealed. Dip each crescent roll into melted butter and then roll in bread crumbs. Place rolls on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden. Mix cream of chicken soup and sour cream in a bowl and heat in the microwave until warmed. Serve over chicken puffs.

Oh boy, do we ever love these!! Try them out!

Our family loves chicken puffs, or chicken cressents as we call them. The recipe has even made it into a couple of family cook books.
We also add mushrooms to the chicken mixture :)
Have a great day!
