Crescent Chicken Bundles; Easy Parcels of Yum

crescentsHere's a good weeknight meal you can whip up in no time. It's one of those staples I keep in rotation that I know everyone will eat, and I usually have most of the ingredients on hand.

The crust is nothing more than packaged crescent rolls, which means it's easy! The filling is a creamy chicken mixture that most children and adults love. You can also spice it up with additional vegetables as you like.

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened (reduced-fat is fine)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter, chives, milk, salt, and pepper until blended. Stir in chicken.

Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into eight rectangles; press perforations together. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture in the center of each rectangle. Bring edges up to the center and pinch to seal. Brush with remaining butter.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet.

Note: You can also make these and then freeze. To bake, thaw in refrigerator first, then bake as above.
