Crunchy pillows with a creamy chicken filling. Top off with your favorite Alfredo sauce to make it your new favorite dinner menu addition!
Crescent roll dough
Crescent Dough: Any variety will work ( ex: fat free, low fat, etc). I preferred Pillsbury, but, any other brand will work just fine.
Alfredo Sauce: Use your favorite jarred version or homemade. See the recipe card for links to both of our favorites.
How to Make:
First, mix together cooked chicken and dried spices.
Remove crescent rolls from the package. Take two crescent triangles and press seams together to create a rectangle.
Fill each rectangle with approx 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture.
Bring corners of dough into middle of chicken mixture. Then, fold up around completely, creating a ball. Repeat with remaining dough.
Dip each ball into the melted butter, then, coat with bread crumbs. Place on prepared baking sheet.
Let them cool for 5-8 minutes before serving.
Top each pillow with warm Alfredo sauce and if desired, chives before serving.
Note: If desired, you can serve these without the topping of Alfredo sauce. They are still delicious. 😉

In a bowl, mix together chicken, cream cheese, minced onion, chives and salt/pepper. Blend well.
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.
Repeat with all rolls.
Fill the middle of each rectangle with approx 2-3 TBSP of chicken filling. Bring corners of dough into middle of chicken mixture.
Then, fold up around completely, creating a ball. Repeat with remaining rolls.
When complete, dip each chicken pillow into melted butter, then, coat with bread crumbs. Repeat with remaining pillows.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until brown. Let chicken pillows sit for 5 minutes or so before serving.
If desired, top with Alfredo sauce and additional dried chives.
