Chicken Bakes

This is one of those fun and easy recipes that you can alter to your liking. There are a lot of different versions out there — I came up with my own version to fit what I had on hand. Oh, and I used my new favorite seasoning from Costco — Organic No Salt Seasoning — it made everything perfection.

What You'll Need

3-4 cooked chicken breasts - chopped in chopper
1 8oz package of softened cream cheese
1/4 c chopped green onions
1 TBS favorite no salt seasoning
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
2 TBS ranch dressing
1TBS lemon juice
1 small head of broccoli - steamed and chopped fine

2 cans big and flaky crescent rolls

What To Do
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Boil chicken until it's cooked. With chopper or food processor, finely chop chicken.
  3. Add to bowl with the rest of the ingredients and combine well.
  4. Unroll crescent roll dough. On a well greased baking sheet take 2 rolls (they are triangle) and connect them together making a rectangle. 
  5. Drop spoon fulls of chicken mixture on the center of the rectangles.
  6. Fold sides and corners of dough, sealing in the filling. Turn over, seam side down, and place on baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 375 for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Keep in mind depending on how you seal the dough, parts of it will be pretty thick so be sure and cook long enough that it won't be doughy. Ick.
**Next time I might add some chopped pimento. Yum!

 I served the Chicken Bakes with French cut green beans.

This looks GREAT! I just put crescent roll dough on my grocery list because I definitely want to try this. :)

Lisa, I made this last night, and it was enthusiastically received! A bachelor friend of Jeff's that was eating with us even offered to pay me to make some more for him. :)

I will definitely make this again, and my mind is twirling with possibilities for other fillings: Hawaiian with pineapple and ham, Greek with feta and black olives, etc.

Thanks so much for a delicious and easy recipe!

By the way, I used my chopper for the chicken and was amazed at how easy it was. I would previously have used a knife (or even scissors) to cut it, but the chopper reduced my prep time considerably. Thanks for the tip about that. :)

I'm so glad you had happy people at your dinner table!!

I like the Greek idea...olives and feta...a weakness.;-)

looks yummy! And a great way to use up that crescent dough that I get for practically free with coupons. Thanks!
