    Let me introduce you to our new favorite chicken dish.

    Chicken in a giant crunchy pillow. Then, drenched in Alfredo sauce. Ah! These are just so darn good!

    I’ve made these a few times, and each time, we liked them even more than the previously time. Therefore, it was time to share them with you, my Internet friends. 🙂

    For real though, these are delicious and really easy to make.

    The pillow is made up a your basic, refrigerator crescent rolls and the filling is chicken, cream cheese and a few spices. For the spices, below is what I used. We are a very plain Jane kinda family, but, if you want to add more..go for it. Use your own flavor judgment.

    Dip the pillows in butter, then, breadcrumbs and bake. See?! Simple.

    They go perfectly with a creamy Alfredo sauce. However, as mentioned, we are a bit plain Jane and some people in my family eat them without the sauce. They are still delicious. Again, go with what your own preference. I included a link to our favorite homemade and jarred Alfredo sauce in the recipe ingredients.

    Both are good..you won’t be disappointed!

    • 2 packages, refrigerated crescent rolls
    • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
    • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 1 tsp dried chives

    2. In a bowl, mix together chicken, cream cheese, minced onion, chives and salt/pepper. Blend well.
    3. Remove crescent rolls from package and lay flat. Press two triangles together to create a rectangle. Be sure to press seams together securely, so, no filling will come out when baking.
    4. Repeat with all rolls.
    5. Fill the middle of each rectangle with approx 2-3 TBSP of chicken filling. Bring corners of dough into middle of chicken mixture.
    6. Then, fold up around completely, creating a ball. Repeat with remaining rolls.
    7. When complete, dip each chicken pillow into melted butter, then, coat with bread crumbs. Repeat with remaining pillows.
    8. Place on baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until brown. Let chicken pillows sit for 5 minutes or so before serving.
    9. If desired, top with Alfredo sauce and additional dried chives.
