Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 servings
  • 3 oz cream cheese, non-fat or regular
  • 1 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed (canned or leftover rotisserie also work well)

  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
  1. Mix cream cheese, butter, chicken, green onion, salt and pepper till smooth.

  4. Place each filled square on ungreased baking sheet with edges downward.
  5. Bake 10-14 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Cool slightly to let flavor develop before serving.
  7. Each crescent roll has 11 carbs, cream cheese less than 1 for a total of 12 carbs/serving.
