Chicken Pillows

If you have never had Chicken Pillows, this is absolutely the most thing requested in my family. Any time I ask "What do you want for dinner?", my boyfriend immediately begs for these. This recipe can easily be made healthy and is so delicious! Boil your chicken before you shred and it is 10x easier.

Prep time: 30-50 min
Cook Time: 18 min
4-6 Chicken Breast
8 oz Cream Cheese (I use1/3 less fat)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pkg Ritz Crackers
1-2 Rolls of Crescents (dough)
     **1 roll if 4 chicken breast. 2 rolls if 5 or 6)
1/4 c butter
1 egg w/ 1 tbs water

For healthiest meal outcome choose fat free cream cheese, 98% fat free soup, and hint of salt Ritz Crackers.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and defrost chicken breast.
1: Shred chicken breast in skillet  
2: Combine cream cheese and butter in a bowl and soften.
3: Combine shredded chicken, cream cheese, and butter and mix well.
4: Mix 1 egg and 1 tbs of water in a small dipping bowl
5: Smash pkg of Ritz Crackers and spread on plate.
6: Roll out crescent dough and fill with 1tbs (or so) of the mixture.
7: Roll the crescent closed around the mixture.

8: Dip and cover the roll into the egg/water mix. Then roll around in the crackers. (We call this the dip and roll)
9: Spread out finished rolls on a baking sheet and bake for 18 minutes.
10: While your rolls are baking, cook cream of chicken soup on stove top. I add any left over chicken mix to the soup.

Final Steps: After your rolls are finished serve with soup over top of your rolls and with rice.
