Chicken Puffs

Chicken Puffs thumbnail

This is one of Munchie’s favorite meals. I love it because it’s a cinch to make and there’s very little clean up.  Bonus: Let the kiddos help you throw this together!

Thanks to my friend, Abby, for sharing her recipe with me.  I made some minor changes to suit our tastes, but it’s a keeper. Thanks, Abs! ♥

P.S. See the recipe video below to watch how I make these.

Chicken Puffs
 
Perfect for kiddos to help with!

Recipe type: Dinner
Ingredients
  • 3 chicken breasts or about 3 cups of chicken, cooked and shredded/chopped (Use rotisserie chicken or leftover baked chicken for a nice shortcut)
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (use a bit less if you like the filling less creamy)
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 4 green onions, chopped finely
  • 2 tubes refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Optional: Add very small pieces of whatever vegetable you like to this. I've added cooked lima beans, peas, carrots, etc. Just be sure they're soft/cooked so they heat properly while cooking.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cooked chicken, butter, cream cheese, milk and green onions. Stir until evenly mixed.
  3. Unroll crescent rolls onto a baking sheet. Separate rolls leaving 2 triangles together (so you have 8 rectangles). Pinch the seams together so the rectangles don't separate.
  4. Place chicken filling onto rectangles. I place the chicken closer to one end so that the next step is easier.
  5. Fold over one side of the rectangle and press/pinch the sides together.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes until crescent rolls are browned.

  1. Yay!! I didn’t realize this was one of Munchie’s favorites but my kids agree! So glad it’s a keeper for you guys!

    P.S. Why did I never think of using leftover baked chicken? And shredding in a mixer? You are my hero.

I love your comments and read them all.
