Cheesy chicken crescent squares aka little pockets of yum

This recipe is so old school I do not even know where it comes from. I have to be honest. I have about 5 church cookbooks that have some version of this delicious concoction. Some are more involved and some are more straight forward and simple. Guess which one I am more partial to? Yep. The straight forward and simple one. These little pockets of yum are so tasty and simple to prepare it almost seems wrong. But it’s not. It’s so so right my friends. In honor of Labor Day, I decided to make a recipe that required almost no labor. So easy my 7 year old could make them. And she almost did them herself. And then she refused to eat them. Yep. That easy!! Sigh.
Now, I have to he honest and say, this is the first meal I have cooked all weekend. I have pretty much been out of commission the entire long weekend with some sort of stomach flu/demon that possessed my body. I thought I was unwittingly chosen to be in a low budget sci-fi film. Nope. Just a yucky bug that knocked me off my behind for a few days. Today is the first day since Saturday I even felt semi human. And still it was a struggle to do much. But I said to myself, what sounds good that I think I can stomach and is not too much work. Yep. These. We went out on the boat so I could at least say we did something over the weekend fun and also my oldest is turning 11 tomorrow and he is ready to PAR-TAY! So here is the recipe and I know y’all will enjoy the heck out of these little pockets to yum aka cheesy chicken crescent squares!

so teeny and precious

then boom, like a flash, he is 11. Not so teeny, but still precious and always my baby.

Toby says he knows nothing about the stomach bug, he is just glad to be on the boat!

Toby is all tuckered out from his boating adventure. He is also super spoiled.

Cheesy chicken crescent squares aka little pockets of yum

Stuff you need~

2 cups chicken breast, cooked and chopped (I used the breast from a rotisserie chicken I picked up and it was just about enough)
1 cup shredded cheddar (use any blend you want or have on hand)
1 can cream of chicken
1 (soup can) of milk
1 can of crescent squares (I used the big and buttery kind and there are 8)

what to do with the stuff~

Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish (you could use a smaller one) with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut up your cooked chicken. Roll out crescent rolls and separate them out. Now, take some chicken and place it in the largest part of the crescent triangle. Then top with some cheese. If I had to give you a guesstimate I would say about 1 tablespoon of each. Maybe a little less. Now, roll that bad boy up and place seam side down in your prepared dish. Do this for each crescent roll/square/triangle of dough what have you. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the can of soup and can of milk. Pour this over the pockets of yum.
Pop the dish into the oven for about 25 minutes. Add a sprinkling of cheese to the top and pop back in oven for a few more minutes or until the cheese is all melty and irresistible looking. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes. Enjoy them and pass this recipe along y’all. It’s too good to keep to yourself! Or just prepare them for a friend and they will ask you for the recipe.
