Crescent Chicken

I Made the most delicious meal for dinner tonight; crescent rolls stuffed with chicken, and asparagus with dijon vinegar sauce. I found the recipe for the chicken rolls on allrecipes.com and the asparagus on Pinterest. Per usual I changed the recipe for both around a little bit.

The chicken rolls were absolutely amazing, I stuffed them with cream cheese, parmesan cheese, red peppers, chicken and celery. Here's how to make them!

  • 2 cups cubed and cooked chicken
  • Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder
  • 3 tbls softened reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1 tbls butter
  • 2 tbls milk
  • chopped red pepper
  • chopped yellow onion
  • chopped celery
  • 1 pkg of crescent rolls (6 rolls)
Mix the cream cheese, butter, milk, and parmesan cheese in a small bowl. Saute the chicken with 1 tbls of vegetable oil until fully cooked. Combine the chicken, red pepper, onion, and celery with the cream cheese mixture. Roll out the crescent dough and separate the 6 triangles. Put the filling in the center of the triangle and fold up the 3 corners and seal the ends. Put the sandwiches on a greased cookie sheet and bake them at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

The asparagus is really easy to make.

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbls red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbls extra virgin olive oil
  • 1lb asparagus
Saute the asparagus until fully cooked. While it's cooking whisk together the mustard, vinegar, and oil. When done drizzle the mixture on top of the asparagus and voila!

Both of these meals are super easy and super healthy!
