Chicken Crescent Bundles - Recipe
My 7 year old has a certain few recipes he absolutely loves. This is one of them. Oh, he won't eat them with spinach, of course, so I prepare a few for him without the spinach. Another thing I like about this is that it's a good quick and easy meal for those busy weeknights when we have Scouts or get home late.
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup milk
3 cups cooked shredded or chopped chicken
1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
fresh cracked pepper
2 cans refrigerated crescent roll sheets
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 350*.
In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, milk, chicken, spinach and pepper.
Unroll one crescent roll sheet and lay out on baking sheet. Cut in half lengthwise, then again widthwise. Spoon 1/8 of the chicken mixture on each rectangle. Fold over the the long edges, then the short edges, pinching lightly to seal. Repeat with second crescent sheet.
Brush all 8 bundles with butter and sprinkle bread crumbs on each.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
