My mom has been making these for as long as I can remember . . . they were one of my favorite meals growing up and now I have converted my kids to them.
I usually serve them with mashed potatoes and chicken gravy (pouring gravy over the roll-ups), but my kids love to eat them dipped in ketchup (yes, they definitely take after me. I am one of those people who loves ketchup with my ketchup! Ha ha!).
I know that everyone has their favorite roll-up or chicken pillow recipe . . . here is mine:
4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
2 packages crescent rolls (in the fridge section of the store- my favorite are Pillsbury- the store-brands usually don't roll-up as well!)
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese (low fat works fine for these), softened
1-2 Tbsp chopped onion (depending on how much you like)
1 small can of mushrooms (you could also use fresh if you prefer those)
2 Tbsp margarine OR butter, melted
Mix together cooked chicken, softened cream cheese, onion, mushrooms, and melted margarine.
Roll out your crescents, place a heaping spoonful of chicken mixture on wide-end of crescent and roll it up. Place on large cookie sheet (I use my largest jelly-roll pan). Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes (watch for the rolls to turn golden).
Makes 16 roll-ups.
