I like recipes that are simple, from scratch, and versatile. I’m always looking for something I can easier make and throw the extras in the freezer to pull out for quick meals and lunches at a later date. These Cheesy Chicken Crescents are a real tummy pleaser and time saver. I mixed up a double batch of them to be able to put them away in the freezer for fast lunches this week.
I buy most of our chicken in bulk from Zaycon Fresh. If you are looking for a great source for bulk chicken and other meats (for a great price!), I highly recommend that you check them out. See my review of Zaycon here and find the latest Zaycon Fresh coupons here.
Cheesy Chicken Crescents
What you need:
- 1 lb cooked, shredded chicken
- 1 1/2 c. shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
- 8oz cream cheese
Mix together the softened cream cheese, shredded cheese, and chicken.
Place a nice serving size on the large end of your crescent dough. Can you make these smaller so they don’t explode in the oven? Sure. 😉
Roll up from the large end to the small end, tucking the small end under.
Pinch the side of the crescent shut. If you added a big dollop of mixture like I did, it still might pop open anyways. Oh well! Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until slightly brown on the top.
After you take them out of the oven you can brush butter over the tops to they stay soft.
Oh. My. Yum.
These make a great freezer meal! Just let them cool down and then load into a freezer bag. If you need to make one you can just pop it in the toaster oven or the microwave to warm it up!
