Meal Plan Monday: Chicken Pillows

I’ve never heard of these before I made them and I have to say I’m pretty much against store bought biscuits. However, since I am always eager to try new recipes, I went ahead and made these for my guys.

I’ve stated before, I don’t think I ever make the same thing twice and I’m always up for variety plus a little bit of change. I’m sure that contributes to the fact that leftovers in my house are never left and when they are they’re not eaten often. Sad but true. I’m trying. These were the perfect new thing to try and I would recommend them if you are  looking for something quick.

My sister has asked me countless times to make a meal plan for her. I considered it and came up with “Meal Plan Monday.” I’ve been thinking of doing a test run on the site by posting a monthly meal plan to see if you all like it. In my house we usually have leftovers from  Sunday to Monday, a quick meal Tuesday and I cook a full meal Wednesday and Thursday and then there are leftovers Friday and take out on Saturday or quick meals on Saturday. I also have a breakfast and lunch meal plan. Can you tell that I like to plan?

Anyways, I made this on a Wednesday one week. My Guys slopped it up and called me blessed. So let me know what you think!

I originally got this recipe from The Jones Way but saw it here not too long ago. Apparently these babies touch lives  or meal plans wherever they go. I should tell you though, I used cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken.

Chicken Pillows


4 chicken breast (cooked and cut up)
half of an 8 ounce cream cheese
1 half chopped onion
3-4 Tbsp milk
2 packages crescent rolls (big and fluffy, store brand is fine)
2 Tbsp melted butter
bread crumbs
*I seasoned my meat mixture with some herbs and Mrs. Dash. I’m a fan of presentation*
1 small can cream of chicken soup or mushroom
1/2 of the small can of milk (about a 1/2 cup)
Boil or bake chicken and cut it up (baked is better if you want more flavor from seasoning) . In a medium pan ( if boiling chicken use the same pan) and over medium heat add in the chicken, cream cheese, chopped onion, and milk. Stir until all ingredients are combined and the cream cheese is melted and makes a sauce.  Take out Crescent rolls and roll them out on a large baking sheet. Dump a spoonful of the chicken mix on a crescent and roll it up, widest end to the smaller end. Pinch the dough together where there is an opening. Melt butter and brush it on top of the rolls then sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. The tops should be a nice golden color. Pour the the sauce over the pillows and serve. Yum!
You can also add broccoli, pepperoni and cheese and even crab with sour cream and cream cheese. Enjoy!
As always, with every recipe that I post, let me know how you love it!
