Creamy Chicken and Bacon Pockets

These were so good, especially hot out of the oven! I came across this recipe and adjusted it a tiny bit!  We’ll definitely be having these again!
Only 6 ingredients! I simplified this as much as possible by cooking my bacon in the oven.  I am never going back to frying bacon on the stove top ever again! This was way too easy.  I also had to run errands during the day so I cooked my frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot by filling it up with enough water to cover the chicken and cooked it on high for 3 hours.  Came home and it was ready for me!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces crescent roll rough
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (chive and onion flavor)
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 1/3 cup crumbled bacon, cooked
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped sun dried tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Warm cream cheese in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to soften. Place in a mixing bowl with mozzarella cheese, chicken, bacon, and sun-dried tomatoes. Stir to combine and set aside.
  3. Lightly dust a work surface with flour and roll out crescent dough. Cut into 16 squares.
  4. Place about 2 teaspoons of cream cheese mixture onto each square. Press edges together until sealed.
  5. After stuffing and folding each pastry, place on a baking sheet. Whisk egg and 1 tablespoon water together and brush over the top of each pastry.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool 10 minutes before serving. Can also be served at room temperature.
  7. Freezer instructions: Follow directions through egg wash. Place baking sheet in the freezer. When pastries are solid to the touch, transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer. When ready to bake, place frozen pastries directly on a baking sheet in preheated 400 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden.

  1. this seems like a silly question but trying to figure out do you mean roll out as in flatten with a rolling pin, or just unroll from the tube? also, i can't believe i've never thought to cook my chicken in the crockpot with water like that so i could cook it while i was gone! talk about a light bulb moment :-)
