Chicken Puffs

5 05 2011

This is a great make ahead recipe.  Make it on the weekend and then it becomes an easy meal on the week nights.  Plus they are frozen so you can make as many as you need.  To make it even easier use canned chicken or cook your own.

Start by opening the crescent roll packages. Unroll the dough and then press 2 triangles of crescent rolls into one rectangle.

Next add a heaping teaspoonful of the chicken mixture onto the crescent roll dough. Fold and pinch edges of dough together. Roll each of the chicken puffs in the crackers, or bread crumbs and then place on a greased cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet in the freezer for 1 hour and then store then in a Ziploc bag in the freezer until you are ready to cook them.

Place frozen chicken puffs on a cookie sheet and bake at 350o F for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and warm through out. When I am making these I double the recipe so that I have extra on hand for a fast and easy dinner. Not to mention my daughter gobbles these up fast!!

2. Stir together remaining ingredients in a large bowl and scoop by heaping teaspoonful onto the crescent roll dough. Fold and pinch edges together. Roll each chicken puff in the Ritz crackers. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Set the cookie sheet in the freezer for 1 hour and then drop all the chicken puffs into a zip top bag. Take out as needed.
