Is it time for some new recipes in your home? Are you sick of eating the same things week after week? I have to mix things up because I know I can’t go very long making the same recipes over and over.
As adults we enjoy trying out new recipes and being a little adventurous when it comes to food. However, if you are a mom or a dad and bored with the same old recipes you continue to make for your family, it can be a little more challenging to know which new recipes to try. I am not a proponent of catering your meals around children nor am I suggesting that you should tolerate picky eaters but it is not fun making something new that the kids at the table are going to turn their nose up at or give you a hard time over. It just sucks the joy out of all the time and effort you put into making a nice meal for your family when they all give you a look or make negative comments.
Chicken squares is a recipe I have made for years and I have found that no matter who I make them for they are loved, especially by kids. In fact this is one recipe that is so well treasured in our home that my husband is surprised I am handing out this secret. This recipe is simple, and by far a pleaser. Give it a try, you will be happy you did.
- 1 (3 0z.) pkg. cream chesse, softened
- 1 tablespoon butter, softened
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (this can be leftover chicken, canned chicken or chicken you cook for this meal)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 (8 oz) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
Heat oven to 350°. In medium bowl, combine cream cheese and softened butter; beat until smooth. Add chicken, chives, salt, pepper, milk and mix well.
Separate dough into 4 rectangles. Press each to form 7×4-inch rectangle (the can of rolls comes in 8 perforated triangles–as you roll out dough instead of separating into triangles separate at every other perforation thus creating four rectangles), firmly pressing perforations to seal. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto center of each rectangle. Pull 4 corners of dough to center of chicken mixture; twist firmly. Pinch edges to seal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
