Garlic Chicken Cheese Puffs

Garlic Chicken Puffs via

So I came across this recipe on one of my stumbleupon adventures and it just so happens that the author made these for a Christmas party, which is exactly what I plan on making them for.
I have my annual family Christmas party this weekend, and as I've gotten older it has been requested that I make a dish of my choice. Last year I made spinach artichoke dip that stole the show, so everyone has high expectations for this year's dish.

This recipe seems like the perfect amount of savory and cheesy that my family loves. I mean who doesn't love a rich, creamy mixture of chicken, cream cheese and garlic inside a croissant? They also look easy enough to prepare and transport. They will probably need to be heated up for a few minutes at my aunt's house before serving, but they can be cooked ahead of time which is an absolute necessity in my book.

Here is the recipe:
Garlic Chicken Puffs
Makes 32 puffs

4 oz cream cheese
1 tsp garlic powder (I love garlic so I may add more)
1/2 cup cooked, shredded chicken
2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  1. Bake chicken until fully cooked and shred (see chicken enchilada recipe for shredding technique).
  2. Mix cream cheese, garlic and chicken until well blended.
  3. Unroll crescent rolls and cut each triangle into 2 triangles (when you unroll the crescent rolls, 2 triangles are attached making a big square, I just cut from there following the perforation for one cut and made another cut from the other corners = giving you 4 little triangles).
  4. Place 1 tsp of chicken mixture on the center of each triangle and fold the corners in over the creamy mixture.
  5. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 12-14 mins. This may vary depending on your oven so make sure to check on them.
This recipe was taken directly fromt the blog TidyMom, so I will give you an update and any of my own recommendations after I make them this weekend.
