Chicken Crescent Bundles

My husband is a true cowboy in all areas, meaning: Beef is his first favorite among meat choices. Here in our mid-western corner of “bovine” country, it’s not uncommon to have cattlemen that refuse to eat chicken. Yes, even to rudeness. Thankfully my dh is not that way, because I happen to love chicken. My point is, dh rarely asks for chicken dishes and he occasionally asks for this one. It’s from my friend Jana, who sometimes comments here. Super recipe. Another one for you, Andrea!

Chicken Crescent Bundles

  • 3 small or 2 large chicken breasts (4 cups worth)
  • 2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 6-8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 TB butter melted, divided
  • 1 TB chives
  • garlic, pepper–just a little
  • seasoned croutons
  • 2 TB milk

Cut up cooked chicken and mix with cream cheese, chives, seasonings, and 2 TB butter and 2 TB milk together in large bowl. Seperate crescent rolls into 8 rectangles, pinching seams. Put 1/3 cup chicken filling on middle of each rectangle, close dough around chicken pinching ends together. Brush w/remaining butter and sprinkle with crumbs.

If freezing, you can wait on the butter/crumbs or not, your choice. I freeze them on trays, and once frozen I dump them into freezer bags. This way they’re frozen with no chance to stick together in the bag.

Bake at 350*F for 25 minutes if fresh, 35 minutes if frozen.

Jana, remember the first time we had these together? You’d just driven 10 hours to visit me, and we had a big 4th of July gathering at Pastor Woody’s house. We’d not decided about attending, unsure whether you and the girls would be up to it after the long trip…but you not only were up for it, you had this great recipe. We threw it together and got so many compliments on it at the potluck that night.

Great memories!

  1. Thanks for all the wonderful recipe ideas. it is a huge comfort knowing I have things in the freezer. That can be popped in at the last min.

  2. Yep, great memories. Driving through the night with two little girls sleeping was VERY much worth it.

    This recipe is still a crowd pleaser at my place…my FIl always requests it for his birthday meal. Now that I cook a whole chicken or 2 in the crockpot every week, I tend to use that meat and it’s yummy too!!

    (email is forthcoming! 🙂 )

  3. You’re HOME! Got your lovely postcard just today, wow, what a gorgeous place! Sniff. Wish we could have met you there…can you see my bulging lower lip?

    Yes, an email better be forthcoming!!!
