I nearly halved the recipe shared by Cheryl over at Tidy Mom, which means you will get 16 puffs if you follow the directions below. We ate them for dinner. Doubling (or even tripling!) the batch would work perfectly for a potluck, appetizer at a party or a family larger than 4 people.
2 chicken breasts, cooked, cut in 1/2 - 1 inch cubes
2-3 ounces cream cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 can crescent roll
First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Next, cook/bake/grill your chicken breasts as you like. I added a little Mrs. Dash seasoning to mine before grilling it.
While the chicken is cooking, mix cream cheese and garlic powder together until well blended.
Unroll crescent rolls and cut each perforated triangle into 2 triangles. You should have a total of 16 triangles after doing this, since there are 8 crescent rolls per tube, each triangle being cut in half.
Place 1 tsp of cream cheese mixture on the center of each triangle. Place 2-4 cubes of chicken on top of cream cheeseand then fold the corners in over the mixture.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and sprayed with no stick spray. Place all the puffs on the cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes, or until puffs are golden brown. Allow to cool.
It was a good thing I had people to share them with, because I could have easily eaten all of them. They taste super good warm out of the oven. Pair with some mashed taters and veggies and you're set.
