CHICKEN ROLL – UPS
(Makes 8 Chicken Roll-ups)
2 Chicken breasts cooked
(in crock pot is best, save juices for gravy)
1 – 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
Ranch flavored croutons, crushed
½ cube (1/4 C ) melted butter or margarine
1 package of Pillsbury crescent rolls, 8 in package tube
Break cooked chicken apart with 2 forks, and add softened cream cheese, you may not want to use all of the cream cheese depending on the how much meat you have. Start with ½-3/4 of the package and mix with the chicken. (I don’t think you can ever have enough cream cheese, so you may just want to use the whole 8 oz.!)
Take your crescent rolls and stretch the triangles and put a heaping spoonful of the chicken mixture on it and fold up the 2 smaller sides first, then roll to the pointed end, you will want to stretch it to make it cover the meat. After filling all 8, dip in melted butter or margarine and roll in crushed croutons. Place on baking sheet and bake at 350* for about 15-20 minutes. Just until they are very lightly golden!
Delicious served with mashed potatoes and chicken gravy.
*Note: To make an easy chicken gravy, warm a can of Cream of Chicken
Soup, add the juices from your cooked chicken, stir, and add a little
milk to make it the consistency you desire for the gravy. Or, using
the chicken juices, make your own gravy.
