This is leftover chicken at its best, and whether you serve these as pass-around appetizers or make them bigger and serve 2 on a plate as dinner appetizers, your company will think you started from scratch just for them!

What You'll Need

  • 2 (3 ounce each) small packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • 1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons diced pimentos
  • 2 (8 ounce each) cans crescent rolls

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Add chicken, milk, garlic powder, salt, pepper, minced onion, and pimientos; mix well
  3. Separate each package of crescent rolls into four rectangles. Spoon chicken filling into center of each rectangle, distributing it evenly. Bring ends up together, pinch closed, and twist.
  4. Brush with reserved 1 tablespoon of melted butter.
  5. Place puffs on a greased baking sheet and bake 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.


You can use all white meat chicken, all dark, or a combination. Whatever you have and prefer. And how 'bout adding a sprinkle of your favorite spice?

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These are very portable! Good for your kids' sports teams when it's your turn to provide a snack. Something different than pizza.

Very good! Have had this recipe over 20 years and the family loves it. To make it even easier than it already is I use canned chicken.

That's a good idea ruegge! I try to keep shredded chicken in the freezer, but sometimes I run out. I'm trying to make a list of pantry staples, and I think I'll add canned chicken. I don't have a big freezer, so the canned items are easier for me to store.

Very easy and really good!

Please include a picture of the finished product.
