Chicken Pot Puffs

Pin It

 I have a recipe that we call "Chicken Puffs" in our house.  It's one of my grandma's recipes and has been one of my all time favorite foods since I was a kid.  I decided to do a spin off that recipe and do a chicken pot pieish filling.  I'd love for you to try them out and let me know what you think!

1 Large Chicken Breast
1/2 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
4 Oz Cream Cheese, slightly softened  
1 Large Carrot, or several baby carrots, chopped/sliced  
1/4 Cup Frozen Peas
-  Salt
-  Pepper 

-  1 - 2 Packages Crescent Roll Dough
-  1 Stick Butter, melted
-  1 1/2 Cups Italian Breadcrumbs

- 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
- 2 - 4 Oz. Cream Cheese
- 1 Can Chicken Broth

Boil your chicken breast until cooked through.  Chop or shred your chicken breast, set aside.  Par boil your carrot slices for about 5 minutes, so they start to get soft, but aren't completely cooked through.  In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup and cream cheese.  Then add in the chicken, carrots, peas, salt and pepper.  Stir together with a spoon until well combined.

Take your crescent roll dough triangles.  They them out and gently push them outwards to make them a bit wider.  Put a dollop of your filling in the center of each triangle.  You will be able to get 8-12 crescent rolls filled depending on how much filling you put inside.  Wrap the dough around the filling and make sure all the sides are closed up (this takes a bit of practice, and in reality if you have a couple of holes it's not the end of the world, your filling will just seep a bit when you bake them).  

Dip your dough in melted butter and then in seasoned breadcrumbs until it's covered everywhere.  Place on a non-greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

To make the sauce simply put the cream of chicken soup, cream cheese and chicken broth in a medium sauce pan.  Bring it to a simmer.  Stir or whisk until all of the chunks are gone.  Let it reduce until it's a good sauce consistency, not runny like it starts out.

I hope you enjoy this little twist on a chicken pot pie!
