Chicken Rolls

So I probably have already said this about a bunch of other recipes, but really this is one of my favorite meals for dinner. They are super tasty and with only 5 ingredients they are really quick and easy to make. You can put many different types of veggies in them such as, mushrooms, green peppers, and broccoli but our family likes them best with just green onions. They pair really well with the cream cheese and chicken we think.

2-3 Chicken Breasts (diced)
1 package Refridgerated Crescent Rolls (I prefer Pillsbury)
2 Green Onions (diced)
1 8oz package cream cheese
1 Package Stuffing
4 Tbsp. Butter (melted)

Preheat oven to *375. Season chicken breasts and bake for 30 min or until completely cooked. (If you are in a hurry you can also use a rotisserie chicken from the store) Meanwhile, dice green onions and place into a bowl. Soften cream cheese (about 10-15 sec in microwave) then mix together with the green onions and diced chicken. Next, roll out the crescent rolls into 8 squares. Place about 1/4 cup chicken filling into the center of each roll, then fold corners up pinching together making sure all the sides are sealed together. Then, brush all the sides of the rolls with melted butter and roll into the stuffing crumbs. (I like to crunch up the stuffing before rolling so that the pieces are a bit smaller. Just do this by placing the stuffing in a bag and pounding with a rolling pin or a can from your pantry) Bake for 18-20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Serve with a green salad or veggie.

*To make this meal a little healthier, buy the lower fat crescent rolls, lower fat cream cheese and don't brush in butter before rolling in bread crumbs.
