Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Cook and stir chicken, onion, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-low heat until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in spinach. Cook, stirring often, until spinach is reduced and chicken is lightly browned, about 10 more minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl and combine with ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and butter; mix until filling is creamy.

  • Unroll crescent roll dough and pinch 2 triangles together to form a rectangle of dough; repeat with remaining dough to make 12 rectangles. Place about 1 tablespoon of chicken filling onto the center of each rectangle and fold the corners together to make balls. Arrange balls on a large baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling is heated through and puffs are golden brown, about 12 minutes.

Tip

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

Pretty good. I followed the directions exactly and they turned out good. I felt they were a little bland but the husband loved them

I changed it up a little by adding Feta Cheese instead. But overall a good appetizer.

The ratio is completely wrong. I had an enormous amount of the filling. I would cut it in 1/4 the next time. Also I did not care for the crescent rolls. The second night since I had so much filling left over I bought puff pastry. A million times better.

I added cottage cheese to it and more garlic. I won my family appetizer contest on Christmas.

Tried this one yesterday and my picky 9 year old like it too. I did add some feta left out the onions and used a LOT of fresh spinach. I'm sure this will heat up well today for lunch.

We make these with cream cheese and powdered ranch seasoning; they're delicious and the whole family enjoys them. Thanks for the recipe!

I read the previous reviews so was forewarned that the proportions seemed wrong. I followed the recipe exactly but wondered if I had enough chicken. The amount of ingredients were basically right for 3 cans of crescent roll dough. However cutting each can of dough into 4 rectangles to get 12 total rectangles with only 1 Tablespoon of filling was wrong. I started with measuring out 1/4 cup or 4 Tablespoons of filling and found that I still had too much dough per puff. I cut the remaining 2 cans of dough into 6 rectangles each and used 1/4 cup of filling for each. This worked out to a much better proportion of filling to dough and used up all of the filling. The end result was that I had enough 1/4 cups of filling to make 18 puffs about cupcake size instead of the 12 puffs stated in the recipe. If I make this again I might try cutting each sheet of dough into 8 rectangles and decreasing the filling to a scant 3 Tablespoons to make 24 puffs for more of an appetizer size. Also since not all chicken breasts are the same size I looked at other recipes that recommended 2 cups of cooked chicken. While the puffs were good they were on the bland side and could use some more flavor. The creamy ricotta and parmesan overpowered the chicken spinach onion and garlic. Another recipe used 3 Tablespoons of fresh basil. That might be enough for more zip without going overboard using spicier additions of peppers etc. I gave the recipe only 4 stars because of the poor
