Ingredients

  • 1 can seamless crescent roll dough
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 cup cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup cream of chicken soup
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Roll your crescent dough out flat onto a baking sheet and set aside.
  3. Place your broccoli florets in a blender and pulse a few times, just to chop them up and make them smaller.
  4. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients besides the dough. {Obvs.} Mix well until everything is evenly distributed.
  5. Place the filling down the middle 3-4 inches of your crescent dough, lengthwise.
  6. Using a pizza cutter, cut 1/2 inch strips into your crescent dough, widthwise.
  7. Once it is all cut, fold one strip of dough at an angle, over the filling. Then fold a strip from the other side at an angle, over the filling. Repeat until there are no more strips left.
  8. Pinch the ends, so that the filling won't leak out.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Let sit for 5 minutes and then cut into strips and serve.
