THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #18 (KID-FRIENDLY) and Chicken Crescent Rolls

The Theme is: Kid-Friendly Recipes/Family Cooking

I can not even tell you the number of times my family has enjoyed this recipe. I've been making it since about 1991 or before. I made it long ago when I was single, I made it when I was newly married (the first time), then I made it time and time again after my twins were born, every kid loves it. And now my husband (yes, second marriage and my last) and my son who is 11 years old, enjoy this easy dinner, it's for sure one of my son's favorites (and he is a picky picky kid).  My mom makes it, my mother-in-law loves it, my nieces make it and so many more people that I have shared it with. This recipe has once again become a staple in our home. It's funny how this recipe, gets forgotten then comes back again and again through the years. It really it that good!

Chicken Crescent Rolls
I've been making this recipe since 1991, it's from an ole' friends grandma!

1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 cube of butter
1 pkg cream cheese
4 cups diced/shredded chicken, pre-cooked
1 pkg Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
Sprinkle of Paprika

Chicken needs to be pre-cooked, diced and/or shredded first. This is a great way to use left-over chicken, make it with a fresh rotisserie chicken or just boil up a few chicken breast and shredded them before you begin.  Then mix all the ingredients together (except chicken) and put in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes just for the butter and cream cheese to melt, then add in shredded chicken. Put a spoonful of the chicken mixture into each roll and roll them up. Sprinkle with a little paprika (and/or a bit of Grandma's Salt), bake at 350 for approx 12-16 minutes.

I would also love to ask each and every one of my blog readers to PLEASE PLEASE VOTE for my twins to win a $2,000 college scholarship (just CLICK VOTE and that's all you have to do). We visited another school this weekend and we are IN LOVE with Point Loma University, but we have many other Christian schools to look at before we pick our favorite college. I am so excited about this journey and can't wait to watch my girls continue to grow into wonderful young ladies!


  1. I don't see how to delete my post, so I don't mind if you do it...I linked all my 'linkys' on a separate page this time (first time trying it out this way so my posts weren't so long and hard to load), but I see you asked that people not do that. Sorry! Trying to hurry through!

  2. Tina, Those Chicken Crescents look like something that would be easy for a Ladies' Day at church. Thanks! Hey, I'm your newest follower, please visit my blog and consider joining my followers, as well. Have a blessed day!

  3. Hi Tina! I hope you consider the recipe that I am sharing today kid friendly! I don't have children so I have not ever focused on that!
    I think there are several tasks (squishing the bananas) that a child could help with.
    My recipe is for Banana Walnut Cookies and everyone that has tasted them thinks they are amazing! They have cinnamon chips in them and I think that really makes them special.
    Thanks for hosting!

  4. Thank you for hostessing! I love all the great themes you have planned.
