Easy Ranch Chicken Pillows

We pretty much love anything wrapped up in a crescent roll and baked. Who doesn't?! Well the other night I was thinking about what to make and this popped into my head. It is a combination of a couple recipes. I cooked an extra breast at the beginning of the week and put it in the fridge. When it came time to make this it took like 15 mins in total to prepare. Simple. 

If this is for a family you'll want to double the recipe, this feeds me & my husband.

Ranch Chicken Pillows
1 chicken breast cooked & shredded (I bbq'd mine)
1/3 cup cream cheese, softened (1/3 less fat tastes great in this)
1/3 cup cream o ckn (or more depending on how saucy you want it)
2 t. Ranch Seasoning (ranch dressing mix)
1 pkg. crescent rolls (the ones with 8 in them)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cream cheese, cream o ckn & ranch seasoning in a bowl. Add pepper to taste or more ranch seasoning. Add chicken and mix well.

Open crescent rolls, spread them all out on a cookie sheet. It should be one large rectangle. Take 2 crescents and press the centers together making 4 small rectangles in total (make sense?).

Add a spoonful of ckn mixture in the middle of each rectangle, fold sides over and seal edges.

Bake for 13-15 mins, checking often after 13 mins. You want them to be golden brown, like a normal crescent roll.

Serve with a side of veggies and enjoy!

Sorry no pictures point & shoot got wet last weekend :(

We had these tonight and loved them. I have made something very similar in the past, but I liked this variation. Next time we are going to add diced celery to the mix because we like the crunch it adds.
