Chicken Packets


  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Ritz crackers, crushed to crumbs
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1/4 cup melted margarine


  1. Mix chicken, cream cheese, chives, milk, and salt in a medium bowl to make filling.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Unroll crescent rolls. Each tube will contain 8 triangles of dough. Divide dough down the center so each packet uses 4 triangles. For each half, press dough along perforations so it will not separate.
  4. Place about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture into the center of each rectangle. Fold dough over the filling, and pinch the edges to seal tightly.
  5. Brush melted butter on top of each packet and top with Ritz cracker crumbs.
  6. Place packets on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
