Chicken Crescent Roll Ups

Servings: 4-6

Ingredients:

1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent roll dough
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon melted butter (optional, for brushing)
Fresh parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)

Directions:

Prep: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or give it a light greasing.
Mix Filling: In a bowl, combine the shredded chicken, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, milk, garlic powder, and onion powder. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.

Prepare Dough: Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into triangles. Lay them out on a clean surface.
Assemble: Spoon a hearty amount of the chicken mixture onto the wider end of each triangle. Carefully roll the dough towards the point, making sure the filling is neatly enclosed.

Bake: Arrange the roll ups on your prepared baking sheet. If using, brush each roll up with melted butter for a golden finish. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown and emit a hollow sound when tapped.

Garnish and Serve: If desired, sprinkle freshly chopped parsley over the baked roll ups for a touch of color and freshness.

Variations & Tips:

Add cooked bacon or diced ham to the filling for extra flavor.
Experiment with herbs like dill or basil to find your preferred taste profile.

Utilize leftover turkey as a substitute for chicken in this recipe—a great way to repurpose holiday leftovers.
Offer a selection of dips—honey mustard, BBQ sauce, or ranch dressing—to cater to different tastes.

For a quick prep, consider using canned chicken or a store-bought rotisserie chicken.
Involve the kids in the assembly process for a fun, educational cooking experience that teaches them valuable kitchen skills.
