Chicken Pillows

OK so I got off to a slow start. This recipe I have had for a long time, I got it from my mother-in-law. I am making this my first official recipe because I have had about four people ask me for this recipe and I never got around to giving it to them...so here it is.

4 cups cooked chicken breasts, cubed (reserve broth)
8 oz cream cheese
4 green onions, chopped (this is optional, and I opt not to use them)
4 oz sliced, canned mushrooms, drained and chopped (I like them, Wayne doesn't)
1 pkg. crescent rolls (10 rolls)
1 cup corn flake crumbs or bread crumbs (I use plain bread crumbs)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 onion powder
1/2 c. melted butter
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Soften cream cheese. Add (onion, mushrooms), and chicken. Mix well. Melt butter and set aside.

Combine crumbs, garlic and onion powders in shallow dish. Press rolls flat and thin. Place 1/4 cup chicken mixture on each roll. Seal edges and shape into a pillow. Dip pillow in butter, then roll in crumbs.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Serve with cream of mushroom soup thinned with chicken broth.

Taste Rating: 4
Difficulty Rating: 3.5
see scale on side: This is a scrumpcious meal but I have two kids hanging off my legs and so this one takes a little more effort than I like to put forth, but I don't like to put forth any effort when it comes to cooking. So try it out and then give me your own ratings!

I know there are a lot of variations to the way people make this, so if you know of one please share. There is one listed on kevinandamanda.com, I have not tried it, but I have tried a lot of their stuff and everything I have had so far has been great.


  1. Super cute new blog! I love your header!

    This sounds delicious! :)

    As far as unzipping all the fonts at once, I've heard unzipping in Vista can be a bear!! I have a mac so I'm not familiar with Vista, but someone wrote in once to say they downloaded a program to unzip all their files for them and that fixed the problem... The "unzipping" program that comes with Vista doesn't work!

    Good luck!

  2. Rachel this recipe sounds SO delicious!
