Chicken Crescents have been an Ample Bites family favorite for more than 20 years. Kids and adults alike enjoy this comfort food. In the Ample Bites household Chicken Crescents are almost always served with a side of cold mixed bean salad.
(Sandy Kelly, 2013)
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1 Tbsp garlic powder, divided
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken breast
¼ tsp Kosher salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp cooking sherry
1 Tbsp chopped chives
3 ounces button mushrooms, finely diced and sautéed
2 Tbsp dried minced onion, divided
8 ounce Pillsbury quick crescent dinner rolls
¾ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix cream cheese, butter, chicken breast, salt, pepper, sherry, chives, mushrooms, ½ tablespoon garlic powder, and 1 tablespoon dried minced onions.
Separate the dough into 4 rectangles and press centerline perforations to close them. Divide the chicken-cheese mixture evenly between the four dough rectangles by placing it in the center of each leaving enough room around the mixture to allow the corners to be pulled over it and close completely. Pull the corners to the center and press them tightly together and then seal all of the edges.
In a shallow bowl mix the breadcrumbs, the remaining ½ tablespoon garlic pepper, and the remaining tablespoon of the dried minced onions.
Spray the dough with cooking spray on all sides. Press the dough into the breadcrumbs covering all sides.
Bake on a foil lined baking sheet for 20-25 minutes. Serve hot.
