I’m quite partial to finger foods, and especially appetizers that can be eaten as meals, and these little Garlic Chicken Puffs are the perfect tasty treat. We’ve made these a few times, but today, in honor of our Oscar’s Party, I made a bit old batch of them. I found the recipe here via pinterest back just before Christmas, and we’ve probably made them for this or that at least 6 times since then. They are also perfect for the kids to take with them to school – they can be eaten hot or cold.
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ cup cooked shredded chicken*
- 2 cans refrigerator crescent rolls
- herbs and spices to taste
- Mix cream cheese, garlic and chicken in a medium sized bowl until well blended. I added some herbs and spices. Go ahead, be a little feisty and use a flavored cream cheese - it adds a certain something to them!
- Unroll the crescent rolls and cut each triangle into 2 triangles ([TidyMom|http://tidymom.net/2009/garlic-chicken-puffs-christmas-party/] note: when you unroll the crescent rolls, 2 triangles are attached making a big square, you can just cut from there following the perforation for one cut and made another cut from the other corners = giving you 4 little triangles)
- Place 1 tsp of chicken mixture on the center of each triangle and fold the corners in over the creamy mixture.
- Place on cookie sheet, lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with no stick spray. Bake at 375 for 10-14 mins.
