  • 1.5lbs of boneless thawed chicken breasts
  • 8oz of cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of water chestnuts
  • 2 cans of crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tbsp of milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups of corn flakes (optional)

  1. Cut chicken into small cubes and cook until white. Chop into smaller pieces and set aside.
  2. Mix butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add milk. Stir in chicken, water chestnuts, and a dash of salt and pepper.
  3. Unroll crescent roll dough; separate into large rectangles (two of the triangles together, press out perforations to seal).
  4. Spoon 1/2 cup mixture in center of rectangle. Bring four corners to the center of filling. Wrap around any excess. Brush with egg white.
  5. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
