Chicken & Cheese Roll-ups!

In my last post, I mentioned that the food we made for Becca & Mike's shower turned out amazing. Everything (except the cake) was Pinterest-inspired, and everything was delish! It was all SIMPLE, too... neat ideas but not hard to do. I like that. Definitely recipes worth sharing!

I'll focus on the Chicken & Cheese Roll-Ups since that's the one I actually made. Haha. 

I wanted to make these for the shower, but they were too big. I needed to make about 40 of these things and using an entire crescent roll for each one would take way too many ingredients and way too much time!

So i hoped i could find a recipe that made them smaller. (You'd think i could figure that out on my own, but nope! Need another blogger to actually show me it can be done! HA!) A few days before the shower, this one popped up in my Pinterest feed.

So basically, what i did was take the filling recipe from Jenna and do the crescent rolls the way Krista did. Mine turned out JUST like the little ones... the only difference is that it's filled with chicken and cheese, not crabmeat.

They turned out PERFECT!!!

They were cute, delicious and easy to make! 
 They were also GONE in no time flat!

{Makes 48}

2-3 chicken breasts, shredded
2 blocks of cream cheese, room temp
1.5 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of shredded monterrey jack cheese
2 packages of crescent rolls
salt & pepper, to taste

(I used a lot more than that, but that is what i'm guessing for 48 rolls. I made 60+ and had leftovers, so this is my guess based on that!)

1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

2.) In a large bowl, mix chicken, cream cheese & shredded cheeses together well. Add salt & pepper to taste. 

3.) Open a package of crescent rolls. Unroll each piece of dough and lay it on your work area. Put them right next to each other so it looks like a large rectangle. Use a baking roller thingy to make them smoosh together (this is why i should have taken pics. Cannot explain this step!). Using a pizza roller, cut across to make 24 squares (4 rows by 6 rows). (If this is confusing, go to Krista's post because she explains it better and has pictures!)

4.) Spoon a bit of the mixture onto each crescent roll square & make the two opposite corners touch in the middle, like so...

 5.) Repeat steps 3 & 4 with the other package of crescent rolls. 

6.) Put on ungreased baking sheet and bake about 10-15 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown.

DONE! And talk about MELT IN YOUR MOUTH!

A special thanks to my friend MANDY who helped me make 490030 of these so i could run around doing other shower-things! Love you, Mandy!! :)
