Chicken Pillows!



Thanks to Pinterest I have now found another amazing delish recipe!! Chicken Pillows are super easy to make and my boyfriend’s family totally loves it!! Points for me! (; lol

Ingredients:
1 (8 oz) can Crescent rolls
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
2-3 cups cooked and shredded chicken
1 egg
1 sleeve Saltine crackers (crushed)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup milk
2 spoons full sour cream
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Now don't all these ingredients sound bomb to you!!! Do people still say that?? Bomb? ... That's the bomb!? hmmm idk, anyways...Here we go!!

First preheat your oven to 400 F

Soften 1/4 cup butter and 8oz. block of cream cheese. Then stir to a smooth consistency.
Add cooked shredded chicken to the bowl. (If you do not know how to cook chicken just
Defrost it, grab some chicken, thighs, legs, breast whatever you have, and put it in a pot to
boil, and wuala! After its done cooking, let it cool add some cold water if you don't want to
 wait and just start shredding your chicken with your fingers)
Next,
Lay out the crescents on a cookie sheet. (Stretch the crescent out)
Place a couple spoon full of the creamy chicken mixture into the center of the crescent to fill it. Then fold the crescent around the mixture so that none of it is showing.
In a separate smaller bowl, put the egg and a little bit of water, maybe a couple Tablespoons worth and beat together. Dip the "pillow" into the blended egg. After dipping into the blended egg, proceed to dip it into the crushed saltine crackers and place on cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining crescents.
Cook the pillows at 400 F for 20 minutes. Keep an eye on them your oven might cook them quicker.
For the sauce topping: Put can of cream of chicken and milk into a sauce pan. Add as much milk as you want to get it to the consistency you want i.e. thicker or runnier. When hot enough add 2 spoon full of sour cream and cheese to your liking.
There you go!! I hope you enjoy it!
