Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Set aside to cool until cool enough to handle; cut into chunks.

  • Mix chicken, cream cheese, mushrooms, green onion, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl.

  • Unroll crescent roll dough. Place a portion of the chicken mixture onto the center of each piece of dough and fold the three corners up, forming a pocket. Pinch edges to seal.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Tip

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I used 1 chicken breast that I seasoned with garlic pepper and onion powder. canned mushrooms (that's all I had) 4oz cream cheese (only had an 8 oz block and it was easier to just cut in half) and an 8 oz can of crescent rolls. I prepared the "pockets" in several different ways but found the easiest was to use 2 crescent rolls together flattened slightly into a rectangle add the mixture along the edge of one of the longer sides roll up and make sure seams and ends are sealed and bake for 20 minutes. My husband loved it but I thought it was missing a little something (might add a dash of hot sauce next time). Thanks for the recipe will be making it again.

I made this recipe the other night for my family! It was a huge hit! Everyone loved it! I used leftover rotisserie chicken for it and it was delicious! I doubled the recipe because I had so much chicken and it worked perfectly. I also used two crescent rolls sealed together in a rectangle shape. Made pockets about the size of an orange. Because I doubled the recipe I ended up using 3 tubes of crescent rolls. I think it made about 12 of them. It was great but I think next time I might make some cream of mushroom soup or something to put over the top. Just the slightest bit dry...

I've made this more than once. The flavor is delicious and they are great to take in a lunch. I've had them as leftovers and they're just fine. After some trial and error I have found that I like to make these with two packages of crescent rolls. I don't separate each piece of roll but rather use two pieces to make each portion. I keep them together in a rectangular shape.

I have made this several times with the only change being to brush the tops and bottoms of each pocket with melted butter and coating them with Italian bread crumbs. They look like I fussed all day and my guests love them!

These things are awesome! I love them cooked exactly as the recipe states and I have made alterations. To save time I have used precook end sliced chicken and it was great. I do prefer to precook my onions just a little.
