Chicken Crescents













Good Monday Morning!

Today I am sharing with y’all one of my absolute favorite recipes. This was, besides chicken and dumplings, my number one requested meal growing up. When I moved into my apartment last year mom scanned and mailed me some of our favorite recipes, and this was of course one of the first!

It is such an easy recipe to taste this dagon good! Its creamy and delicious inside and crunchy and flakey outside creates the perfect combination.  And it can even be made with leftovers, maybe cook an extra chicken the night before!

Side note this dish makes such amazing leftovers. Cooking for one can actually be really hard, and lunch is always the most difficult meal for me. So whenever something makes kick butt leftovers I’m all on board. 

So I cooked my chicken on a George Forman (thanks bae for teaching me how to use it). But you can cook it in the oven, on the stove or on an actual grill (or like I said earlier cook an extra chicken the night before). I personally like shredded chicken better then chopped, but you could do it either way.

I tried taking pictures of how I pinches the seams together and formed the crescent. Because I know the directions might not be totally clear. So hopefully that makes it a little clearer!

I added a little Italian Seasoning into the breadcrumbs that went on top of the crescent for a little extra flavor.
