These Buffalo Chicken Pillows are crazy good! How could they not be? Cream cheese, chicken, buffalo sauce and cheddar cheese wrapped in crescent rolls and topped with Cheez-Its. O-M-G!
This recipe is adapted from my Chicken Crescent Squares recipe. I like the original recipe, but I really, really like this kicked up version. You can control the heat in the chicken mixture by adjusting the amount of buffalo sauce. I used 3 Tablespoons and thought it was perfect. Not hot, just a good buffalo flavor. If you are making this for kids, you could start with 1 or 2 Tablespoons of buffalo sauce if you are worried about the heat.
Buffalo Chicken Pillows
- 1 (3 oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 2 cup chopped cooked chicken
- 3 Tbsp buffalo sauce (Frank’s)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
- 1 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1/3 cup crushed Cheez-Its
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine cream cheese and buffalo sauce; stir in chicken and cheddar cheese. Set aside.
Unroll crescent dough, separating into 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. Spoon 1/4 of chicken mixture into center of each rectangle; bring corners of each rectangle together over chicken mixture, and twist gently to seal.
Brush packets with 1 tablespoon of melted butter; dredge in crushed Cheez-Its and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
