These Chicken Packets are simple, delicious and kid friendly.
When I was home over Christmas I went through my mom’s recipe book to get the recipes for some of my favorite things she made when I was growing up. These Chicken Packets are a big favorite of ours. I made these when I was a nanny and they were very kid friendly too. Easy to make and something the kids will eat sounds like a pretty good deal to me, how about you?
I love these chicken packets because it’s a delicious chicken mixture packed into a crescent roll that’s topped with ritz crackers and melted butter. Those are some of my favorite things all combined.
- 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 3 T. margarine
- 2 cups cooked chopped chicken
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1/8 t. pepper
- 2 T. milk
- 1 T. chopped onion
- 8 oz. can crescent rolls
- 3/4 c. crushed Ritz crackers (about 1 roll crushed)
- Cook chicken and chop
- Mix chicken, cream cheese, milk, salt and onion together
- Tear off two crescent rolls at a time and press them into a rectangle
- Put about 1/2 cup mix in each rectangle (make it into a ball and pat it out a bit).
- Fold over and seal edges.
- Soften margarine and then spread it over the crescent roll
- Spread crushed cracker crumbs over the crescent roll
- Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet. at 350 for 20-25 minutes, until golden.
I doubled the recipe so I had eight chicken packets and we were able to have my sister over for dinner and still have leftovers. We enjoyed these with rice on the side, green beans and applesauce. You can’t forget the applesauce in my opinion!
Do you have a favorite dinner recipe using crescent rolls?
These look delicious! I think I might dip mine in some Marinara sauce.
Thanks for sharing!
That sounds like a yummy idea!
Looks Yummy! I will love them with avocado dip 🙂
Yum! Can’t wait to try this 🙂
These do look delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Absolute yum! I love it that you used Ritz crackers for coating and I had thought that it’s pastry. A great twist. #homematters
