Garlic Chicken Puffs

Garlic Chicken Puffs

4 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 c cooked shredded chicken*
2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
optional alteration:
2 cloves garlic, minced
some chopped up greet onion

  1. Mix cream cheese, garlic, and chicken until well blended.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls and cut each triangle into 2 triangles (when you unroll the crescent rolls, 2 triangles are attached making a big square, cut from there following the perforation for one cut and make another cut from the other corner, giving you 4 little triangles).
  3. Place 1 tsp of chicken mixture on the center of each triangle and fold the corners in over the creamy mixture.
  4. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 375F for 12-14 minutes.
*For cooked chicken, I threw 5 or 6 chicken tenderloins into a baking pan and baked them for about 30 minutes.

  • I made this recipe twice within a week (Christmas party and Christmas day), and I had to "alter" the original recipe (above) because it was a little bland.  Second time, although they were all gone by the time I came inside, I was told that they were delicious! (I guess the fact that they were all gone is a good sign!)
  • I used reduced fat cream cheese (a full 8 oz block) and reduced fat crescent rolls.
