Creamy Chicken Pillows

Kathy Cromer


I found 101 and more ways on the food blogs and recipe sites to make these cute pillows! I decided to just make them my way and not follow anyone else's recipe! I was really surprised how filling they were and also very good! They are really good with or without the gravy depending if you like chicken gravy or not! This recipe is another one that I will add to my chicken file because I cook alot of chicken and love to find as many ways I can to switch it up for my family! 2 thumbs up from my family!

A tip for dicing the chicken: I diced it while it was still partially frozen! Works great!

How to Make Creamy Chicken Pillows


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Heat olive oil in a skillet and add diced chicken, browning until juices run clear, about 15 minutes.

    Blend cream cheese and 2-3 Tablespoons melted butter until smooth. Add to the skillet of chicken.

    Add Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, milk and onions. Simmer 5 minutes and mix well.

    Unroll crescent rolls out to their triangle shape.

    Spoon chicken mixture onto the center of each separated dough, leaving a little room on the sides and top. Rolling from the top towards the small end and then pinching the sides together, this will turn out somewhat like a ball.

    In a bowl, roll crescent roll in the remaining melted butter and then in bread crumbs.

    In a seperate bowl, place poppy seeds and roll crescent in them.

    Place on baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes or until rolls are done. (slightly brown)

    Top with gravy.
  • 2To make the gravy, combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream, mayo and 1/4 cup milk. Cook over medium heat until heated through.
