Bundled up chicken

http://forwhatitsworth-jeannie.blogspot.com/2013/03/bundled-up-chicken.html

At the beginning of the week hubs brought home a big package of large boneless skinless chicken breast.  They are so plump that one is large enough for both of us.  I separated them into packs of two in freezer zip lock bags and froze some.  Two of them I boiled with salt, pepper and dried Rosemary.  This is the recipe I made today, and it turned out so well I promised hubs to make it again before long.  The other breast will be chicken pot pie tomorrow.

Bundled up Chicken

Mix together in a small bowl and set to side:
1 large boneless skinless chicken breast, (or 2 smaller breasts) cooked and shredded
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened in microwave 20 seconds
1 generous teaspoon lemon pepper

Separate and lay out 8 refrigerated crescent rolls (from the dairy isle)
Place 2 Tablespoons of chicken mixture on the large end of the triangle.
Sprinkle a pinch of cilantro on each chicken mound.
Roll up the crescents and fold over the corners to enclose the mixture.  Press edges closed.

Roll each bundle in melted butter (3/4 stick) then in fine bread crumbs (1 cup)
Place breaded bundles on an oiled baking dish.
Bake 375 F for 20 minutes
While they bake, mix and heat 1 can cream of chicken with 1/2 can milk and a big pinch of pepper.
Serve bundles with cream of chicken sauce ladled on top.

Now that's done and we're settled down to watch a Sandra Bullock movie.  I just love Sandra Bullock.
