behold, the chicken pillow



chicken pillows are a family favorite.

we have them at birthdays a lot
'cause usually the birthday boy/girl
gets to pick what their favorite meal is.

so what better time to make them
than when we're celebrating
the birth of sweet bella?
{my girl coree had her baby!}

here's the recipe.
they are super easy & sinfully delish.
{the ingredients are tweaked a bit to my liking}


1 can cooked/shredded chicken [costco can style]....
or you can just do 2 cups boneless/skinless cooked/shredded chicken

1 8 oz thing of cream cheese

1/2 cube butter

seasoned bread crumbs

a bowl of melted butter

1 bag frozen rolls

mix together shredded chicken, softened cream cheese, and butter. {*add a little bit of salt+pepper} place about a tablespoon of filing inside each roll and then dip the filled roll into some melted butter and then into bread crumbs. let rolls rise for about an hour, or until large. bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.

*you can use cream of chicken soup, milk & pepper heated up as gravy...or your own gravy....

Ok, those look killer...do you let the rolls thaw out a little then put the filling in? I know, dumb question.

I make these rolls using canned crescent rolls, but this sounds so much yummier. Do you thaw the frozen rolls then add the filling?

Seriously Ang, you made Bryan's week with these things! Thank you so much! They were so delicious, not to mention all of the other yummy things you sent along with them. PS the flowers are beautiful and I put them on top of the TV in our room so I can look at them whilst feeding the babe. LOVE YOU!

Sounds delish! Thanks for posting the recipe- I've been thinking about asking you for it for a couple-ish weeks!

Btw, I heard my mom has an adorable new bff named Chloe...

I can't think of chicken pillows without thinking of your family! I remember eating them at your house multiple times. How fun. That's a long lasting food memory.

Ooh, I love these. I put a Tblsp of Mrs. Dash original in the cream cheese chicken stuff. Try it. Ooh, I think I might have to make these soon.

Melody Williamson said...

oh these are definite fav here, but with a few minor tweeks....add lemon pepper and green chiles in the cream cheese mixture and lemon pepper in the bread crumbs and use crescent rolls instead...some white gravy over rice-divine!

Yes, these things are divine! Too bad I can't eat them anymore. I guess I could find a gluten free roll recipe and whip them up. Matt absolutely loves them.
