Trevor’s favorite meal as a kid was “chicken pillows”. I have tried to recreate this meal using only his description and the result was this original recipe, it’s super easy to make and I think kids would really like it, hope you enjoy it!
4 oz light cream cheese
13 oz canned cooked chicken (or 2 cooked small chicken breasts)
1 T toasted sesame seeds
1 T dried parsley
½ of a white onion finely chopped(optional)
1 c frozen peas and carrots
½ c frozen corn
3/4 can reduced fat cream of chicken soup
1 package refrigerated crescent rolls
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350*
(Optional: you want you can saute’ the onion and sesame seeds for a few minutes just to loose that crunch and give them more flavor)
Thaw frozen veggies in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes…then…
In a medium bowl combine all ingredients except the rolls….duh!
Once combined, take the little crescent triangles and gently pull and stretch them so they get a little bigger, then, place a big spoonful of the mixture in the center and fold corners overlapping like flower petals to make a cute little pillow! Place on greased cookie sheet.
Look at the instructions for baking the rolls on the side of the box, increase that cooking time by about 5-7 minutes or until golden brown…enjoy!
