Okay. So first of all, I totally realize that these broccoli chicken puffs are not exactly the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen. They look a bit saggy, and you may be wondering what the heck they are or what is in them. But I promise you – they are delicious!

This was my first attempt at making these, so I hope to improve on their looks in the future. Just believe me when I tell you that they are a simple, yummy bundle of goodness (saggy though they may be!) They are filled with a tasty mixture of chicken, broccoli, and cream cheese that goes great with the buttery, flaky crescent rolls.

Broccoli and Chicken Puffs

Recipe Ingredients:

• 2 cups cooked chicken, either shredded or in small pieces
• 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil (to cook the chicken – not needed if using canned or cooked chicken)
• 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
• 3 Tablespoons melted butter, separated
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1 cup steamed broccoli, chopped
• 1 Tablespoon milk
• 1 package crescent rolls

 

Broccoli Chicken Puffs with Cream Cheese Recipe

Recipe Directions:

Cook and shred your chicken any way you desire. I cut mine up into small pieces and cooked it with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. However, you could also poach and shred the chicken, or use canned chicken. For the broccoli, I used the microwave steam-in-a-bag kind. The main thing is that you want to have 2 cups of cooked chicken either shredded or in small pieces, and 1 cup of cooked broccoli, also in small pieces.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the softened cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Add the chicken, salt and pepper, broccoli, and milk, and stir together.

On a baking sheet, place 2 crescent rolls together to make a rectangular shape. Add several spoonfuls of the chicken mixture to the middle of the crescent roll. Fold the corners of the crescent roll up together and make a sort of pouch around the chicken mixture. Brush the tops with 1 tablespoon of melted butter, and then bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown.

  1. I don’t think they look saggy at all. In fact, I think they look amazing. Adding another one to my “to veganize” list. 😉 I hope you enjoyed your cruise!
