Chicken Breast and Salsa Crescents

Let get this party started!

This was my first recipe uploaded to Pinterest. BE WARNED! When I cook, I am really bad at following exact instructions or making exact measurements. I like to eyeball seasoning, and also use up things in my fridge that are half eaten or whatever. So with a lot of my recipes it’s going to be sort of use-what-you-have-and-like style.
With that said… I keep buying the Light Pillsbury Crescent rolls at the store and making different things with them.

This recipe was inspired by some I’ve seen on Pinterest but this one is my own creation. I used what I had in the fridge!
Which was…

2 cooked chicken breasts (leftover from a whole roasted chicken)
1/2 jar of Salsa (mine was Hot because I like it spicy, but you could use any). I’m going to guess it was about a cup.
1 roll of Pillsbury Crescents, I used the Light version.

All I did was shred up the cooked chicken breasts in a bowl with a fork, add the salsa, mix it all together, and then plop the mixture on the unrolled crescents. Baked for 15 mins at 350 or whatever the temperature was on the Crescent rolls container.

This was the result:

Delish!  The BF and I scarfed them all down.

You really can do a lot with these things, here are some other great recipes I’ve actually made using crescent rolls (the crab one was to die for).

Spinach and Cream Cheese Crescents: http://keeleymcguire.blogspot.ca/2011/11/food-for-thought-spinach-pinwheel.html

FYI about the last two, when I made it I simplified the recipes and just basically mixed cream cheese with imitation crab or with spinach, and didn’t really bother with the other ingredients.  For the spinach one I used fresh instead of frozen spinach.  They were both delicious.  I also used light cream cheese for both.

Anyways, go get some crescent rolls now and start making these amazing recipes!!
