Family Favorite Recipe

When I was in college I was lucky enough to live with my big sister who spoiled me rotten. She always cooked homemade meals for me and my favorite all time meal she cooked was Chicken Crescent Rolls. I'm not where she came up with the recipe but I fix them a lot as they are now my hubby's favorite.

Chicken Crescent Rolls


1 lb boneless chicken tenders
2 tbsp chopped celery
2 tbsp chopped onion
4 oz cream cheese
3 tbsp butter
2 containers Pillsbury crescent rolls
Salt and pepper(to taste)

Cook chicken with celery and onion until chicken is done-drain and transfer chicken and veggies to plate
Chop chicken into bite size pieces and add cream cheese and butter while chicken is still warm (I have found that the listed amount of cream cheese and butter are the perfect combination but feel free to alter to suit your taste)
Sprinkle chicken mixture with salt and pepper and set aside
Spread crescent rolls on baking sheet but leave them in squares instead of dividing- I think most containers include 8 crescents so this would be 4 squares per container.
Spoon chicken mixture onto squares and fold corners to meet.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

We serve ours with mashed potatoes.

Of course no meal is complete without mommy's little helper..
