Chicken Pockets



I am so glad I made these, they were so delicious and soooo easy to make. 


My favorite part was wrapping the filled dough into a ball because I felt like was tenderly tucking in a masterpiece of flavor. 

This recipe is easily adaptable so please experiment  and share your outcome! 

I did!!!

My Rendition: 
Creamy Chicken Parmesan and Spinach  
and
Creamy Chicken Parmesan with Spinach and Sun dried Tomatoes

My Healthy Secret:
 I used greek yogurt instead of cream cheese and butter
 and of course it turned out 
AMAZING.

Recipe happily adapted from Pennies on a Platter
Ingredients: 
1 pkg of crescent rolls
1 large chicken breast, chopped (or 2 small)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese + some for sprinkling
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4-1/2 tsp pepper-(depends on how much you like it)
1 tbs Sun dried tomatoes diced
1/8 cup fresh spinach leaves, chopped (I didn't measure this, I just grabbed a pinch of leaves)
~1 tbs butter, for brushing

Directions:
Mix greek yogurt, spinach, Parmesan cheese,  garlic salt, and pepper in a bowl. 

Heat oil in skillet on medium heat and cook chopped chicken and minced garlic cloves. 

Preheat oven to 375. 

Add cooked chicken and garlic to yogurt mixture.

Unroll crescent roll from pack and separate into 4 squares--2 triangles attached. Pinch seams to close square. 

Place on a ungreased baking sheet .

Place a large spoonful of chicken mixture onto the dough.  Sprinkle top with either a pinch of Parm cheese or sun dried tomatoes

To fold into a ball, pull the two opposite sides together and pinch close. Repeat with the other side, and pinch any open seams. 
         If you notice a tear in the bottom of the dough where the mixture may be pushing out, gently pick up the ball and  pinch seam close. Place back on baking sheet. 

Gently brush the top of the dough ball with butter. 

Bake for 11-13 min until ball is a golden brown. 

Serve with a delicious side.

ENJOY!!!!

My husband and I wanted to try both so we cut them in half and shared! Mhmmmm!
