Chicken Pillows Recipe

Chicken-Pillows- Recipe

I have always LOVED chicken pillows! My mom used to make them when we were little. Then I got married and found out my husband loved them too, except his mom made them different than my mom did. So, to keep everyone happy, and feeling nostalgic, we switched up the recipe to combine the best of both worlds!

We made these a few Sunday’s ago, and the kids even loved them. Of course, they’re not healthy, so the kids were bound to enjoy them! Haha!

Chicken Pillows Printable Recipe

1 pkg of Crescent rolls, we use the jumbo size so they’re easier to fill.

For the Filling:

1 can of cooked/ shredded chicken

1/2 package of cream cheese (softened)

1/2 cup of sour cream

1 t. garlic salt

1/4 cup of diced green onions

For the Sauce:

1 can of cream of chicken soup

1/2 cup of sour cream

1/2 lemon juiced

For the Crunchy Topping:

2 T melted butter

1/4 cup Panko or bread crumbs

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Parsley (optional)

Directions: Roll out crescent rolls and let them warm up a little so they’re easier to stretch.

Combine chicken, cream cheese, sour cream,  garlic salt, and onions in a mixing bowl to make filling.

Use 2-3 Tablespoons of filling for each roll. Place filling on the big end of crescent roll. Gently roll like a normal crescent roll, tucking in the edges as needed, to prevent the filling from pouring out while cooking.

Brush the tops of the crescent rolls with a little bit of melted butter, then sprinkle bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and a little parsley on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes, or until the bottoms of the rolls are a light golden brown.

Meanwhile, combine cream of chicken soup, lemon juice, and sour cream in a medium saucepan. And cook over medium heat until hot.

Top the chicken pillows with sauce and serve!

  5. Hi there, this is funny, my son made these just last night, the only difference is he added chopped broccoli to the mix. They were so good. Sorry I have not been by for a while, my husband had to have open heart surgery and is still in the hospital so my time is limited to blog visits.

    I would love to have you stop by The Oh My Heartsie Girls WW this week.
    Have a great day!!!
