chicken recipe idea - chicken pocket

We all need QUICK and EASY meals and these Easy Creamy Chicken Pockets fit the bill. This easy chicken recipe will definitely be an addition on our family meal rotation.

Meal Idea with Leftover Chicken

We had purchased pre-cooked chicken that made these chicken crescent pockets even quicker to make.  Using leftover cooked chicken would also work very well.  Anything to make meals easier is a win in our book!

Add some cream of chicken soup and cream cheese to the pre-cooked chicken, wrap it in refrigerated crescent roll dough, roll in butter and bread crumbs if desired and bake for 20 minutes.  We’ve made this recipe a couple times already.  The first time we just used one can of refrigerated crescent rolls and had a very hearty, meaty meal.  The second time we used two rolls of dough so we had more food, but it wasn’t quite as meaty.  How much bread you use depends on how many people you need to feed and how hearty of a meal you are looking for.

We all enjoyed this home cooked meal that was cheap and easy!
