I love those little refrigerated crescent roll dough tubes! They’re awesome for so many different recipes. Though I’d prefer a croissant for plain eating :) The other night we had something very good using those, and I just had to share! Recipe originally found at The Virtuous Wife
- 1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 1c shredded cheddar cheese
- 4T butter, melted and divided
- 2T green onions
- 2T milk
- 1/2t salt
- 1/4t pepper
- 4c cubed cooked chicken
- 2 tubes crescent rolls
- 1c crushed chicken stuffing
In a large bowl combine cream cheese, 2T butter, green onions, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir in chicken and shredded cheese.
Open and unroll crescent rolls. Do not separate. Pinch the diagonals closed, and separate so you have 8 total rectangles.
Spoon 1/8 of the filling onto each of the rectangles. Take opposite corners, twisting together at center. Take the other set of opposite corners and twist to fully enclose. You may need to pinch together some on the sides too. You want them sealed up.
Put bundles on baking sheets, brush with remaining melted butter, top with a bit of crushed stuffing – pressing down to secure.
Bake at 350 for 20-25min or until cooked completely.
You can also freeze these before baking them. Instead of putting them on a plain baking sheet, line the sheet with parchment paper. Once assembled put into the freezer until they are frozen. Then transfer to labeled freezer bags.
