roll em up kids......

so this next one came from years of eating chicken pillows, chicken roll ups and other variations. mostly influenced from my mom's recipe, this is one i came up with and we all heart it.

my kids love, love, love to help roll them up, dip them and most importantly, EAT THEM!

preheat oven to 350

3 chicken breasts cut into small pieces and sauteed. you could use a rotisserie chicken, frozen breasts or leftover chicken from a grill night.

1 tub of vegetable cream cheese

opt. cashews - my kids won't do nuts but if they don't mind, this gives an ultimate crunch and flavor

mix these 2 together. it might help if your chicken is warm or your cream cheese has been out at room temp for a few minutes.

2 packages of tube crescent rolls

1 cube of butter melted

2 cups of bread crumbs - season to your liking. i use salt, pepper, parm cheese, basil, parsley and oregano

take a spoonful of mixture and place in the center of the crescent roll. roll up sealing the sides. dip in the butter and then the bread crumbs.
this makes 16 and it usually works out perfect. bake for 20-25 minutes on 350. you can serve this with gravy or plain. i serve them with mashed potatoes (a fav at our house) and KoolAid on family night!

she loves brown gravy, you can use your favorite, traditionally it is served with chicken gravy. ENJOY!
