Chicken Pillows

So my new roommate and I put up this quote above our kitchen wall yesterday.

I think it’s pretty fitting – especially considering I’m an excellent cook. wink wink.

Good thing it doesn’t say “I kiss better than a photograph my meals” because nobody would kiss me ever.

(Thank you to my dear friend Joy for the vinyl and her cute vinyl store.)


Last night I was determined to make these chicken pillows – even though we were invited to two different dinners and ate half a pan of 7 layer dip beforehand. C’est la vie.

We were really really full though.


Chicken Pillows

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 block of cream cheese
  • 1 pop can of croissant dough
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Cook and season the chicken in your favorite chicken-cooking way. I just threw it in a crockpot for a couple hours with some pepper and onion.
  3. Shred cooked chicken and mix with cream cheese.
  4. Unroll croissant dough and fill with chicken cheese mixture.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes.

Taste Rating: 9.9/10

I want to eat these every day. I may just make them again tomorrow. They just melt in your mouth and make you very very sad when they’re gone. This only made about 8 pillows, but we had extra filling left, so make sure you buy lots of dough if you want them to go farther.

Ease of Cooking: 9.875/10

So you can make these look prettier by actually folding the croissant dough into balls around the chicken mixture, but I didn’t even go that far. Seriously – chicken, cream cheese, croissant dough from a can. How much easier can it get?? This was the easiest thing I’ve made since I started this blog and they make everybody happy.

Thanks to uh… common sense? life? … for this recipe!
