Chicken Pillows


These are perfect little bundles of customizable deliciousness. You can pretty much fill these with whatever flavors you like. I’ve made a Mexican version (try using ground beef, salsa, spicy cheese, chilies, etc) and a few other varieties (try roasted veggies with cheese!), but I’m going to share with you the basic idea..

Chicken Pillows

Basic Ingredients:
  • 1 Can pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 2 Cups shredded chicken
  • ¼ C Sour cream
  • 3 Tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 Large clove of pressed (or finely minced) garlic
  • Salt & Pepper

I usually also add:
  • ½ C Shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ t Cayenne pepper


You’ll also need:

  • ¼ C melted butter
  • 2 C bread crumbs

  1. Combine all ingredients (except for butter and bread crumbs), and stir until incorporated.
  2. Spread out and press the seams of the crescent dough together, using two triangles to form a square. It will make 4 squares all together. *Make sure the seams are pressed together, so the filling doesn’t come out later on!!*
  3. Place about ¼ C of filling in the center of each square, and fold the edges over, pressing them together to form a “pillow”.
  4. Dip each pillow in the melted butter, roll in bread crumbs, and place on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

(OR, before rolling in bread crumbs, put in freezer safe ziplock bags and save for later!! When ready to bake, dip in butter & breadcrumbs, and bake!)
