This is another easy weeknight meal courtesy my favorite cookbook, Southern Living Homestyle Cooking. This recipe been on my list to make for years.  I finally got around to making this last week.  I wish I had made them sooner – they were great!

I used some rotisserie chicken and this came together in no time.  We both loved these little chicken bundles – especially the croutons on top.  They reminded us of my Chicken Roll Ups, but without the sauce on top.  These are going into our regular weeknight dinner rotation.

  1. Made these last night for dinner and OH MY……..YUMMY!!!! My husband loved them too! Definitely adding this one to the dinner menu. Thanks!!!

  2. Jodie – it is both. You add only 2 of the 3 Tbsp of butter and then the next 3 ingredients (chicken, milk & pepper). You use the 3rd Tbsp of butter to brush the crescents before baking.

  3. The ingredients list says 2 Tbsp milk but the directions say 2 Tbsp butter…. which is it? Planning on making these tonight 🙂

  4. I make a variation of these using canned chicken and cream cheese, parsley, dried onion and spices to taste. My boyfriend LOVES them and requests them at least once a week. They're so easy to double for leftovers for the next day!!

  5. I used to make these all the time! So glad to see them… Now I will remember to add them into my line up!
    My recipe was almost the same except I added green onions in with the chicken and cream cheese! Yum!

  6. Just stopping by from BJ's blog, Sweet Nothings. She talked about your blog being so good. I agree! I am your newest follower! I will be back to get recipes off your blog. Love it!
