Such a breeze to make for a kid-friendly dinner.

What You’ll Need:

  • Cooked Chicken. Use rotisserie chicken, poached chicken, baked chicken, or some that you have cooked in a crockpot.
  • A block of cream cheese. Soften it so that you will have an easy time mixing the filling together.
  • Milk, half-and-half or cream
  • Green onions. You can leave them out if you wish or substitute with a few teaspoons of dried parsley flakes.
  • Salt and Pepper.
  • Crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper if you want a little heat.
  • Seasoned dry stuffing mix. It adds a little flavor and crunch to the exterior, but you can easily omit this ingredient if you don’t have any on hand.
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Melted butter
  • Refrigerated crescent roll dough

RECIPE TIPS:

You can easily add a little steamed broccoli to the filling. Whenever I make these, I make one with just broccoli, no chicken, for my daughter. She is vegetarian. She loves it. I also add a little shredded cheddar cheese to hers.

You can easily cut the recipe in half to make 4.

The unbaked bundles can be frozen for up to 2 months. Place them in the freezer on a baking sheet. When they are partially frozen, transfer them to a ziplock freezer bag. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then bake according to recipe instructions, adding a little baking time if they are still partially frozen.

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 2 tablespoons whole milk or half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 4 cups chopped cooked chicken

  • 1/2 cup crushed seasoned stuffing, Stovetop or Pepperidge Farm is what I use
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl, use a hand-held mixer or a wooden spoon to mix the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons melted butter, milk, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes together.
  • Stir in the chicken and green onions.
  • Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate it into 8 rectangles. Try to stretch them a little into more of a square shape. Press on the preforations to seal them.
  • Divide the chicken mixture evenly between the 8 pieces of dough, placing it in the center of each piece.
  • Bring the edges of the dough up to the center to form a bundle and press to seal the edges.
  • Place them on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter.
  • Sprinkle the tops with the stuffing mix and Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

  1. I have a similar recipe that I use crushed croutons instead of stuffing- lots of flavors to choose from as well.

  2. Made these with 3 cups chicken, 1 cup steamed broccoli, very tasty. Will make a double batch next time and try freezing them. Took about 14 min to cook with the layers of dough on top.

      1. I have never seen this before! Thanks for putting it on your site. As soon as I can round up all the ingredients, it’s at the top of my list.
        Looks delicious
