My family tends to eat whatever I make, but there are a few things that my kids, my son especially, frequently request. One of these requests is chicken croissants. I don’t make these too often, but he and the husband love when I do. I found this recipe years ago on a blog. A blog, which I found out is no longer in existence when I tried to lookup the recipe online. I made them from memory though and figured I’d better write it down. So, tip of the day, if you really love a recipe, print it out. It might disappear forever if you don’t.
All you have to do is cut your chicken into bite size pieces and cook on the stove. While that’s cooking, mix the softened cream cheese and butter, onions, garlic, and parsley together. I get lazy on this and used minced onions and garlic. Once the chicken is cooked, add that to the mixture as well.
Open the crescent rolls. Don’t separate them into triangles, but into rectangles. You’ll get four out of each can. Smoosh the seams together some and then put a spoonful of the chicken mixture in the middle of each. Fold them up, one corner at a time. I like to make sure all openings are closed and nothing leaks out during baking, so I press the dough together around any holes.
Once that’s all done, just bake them a few minutes until they turn brown. Easy. My kids are also huge fans of cheese and broccoli, so I stock up on the steamable varieties. Easy when I don’t want to mess with real veggies.
