Chicken Pillows

We have been making this recipe for the longest time.  My mom always use to make this recipe for us when we were kids.  Now im happy that I am able to make it for family and it has quickly became one of our family favorite meals to make.  I like this recipe because it is easy to throw together and I usually always have the ingredients on hand.
Im also a big fan of sauce!!  The more sauce I have the better.  So definitely make sure you have the sauce!
Plus if you are a small family like me, this recipe makes a lot.  So make all the “pillows” and place the extras in the freezer, just don’t bake them until you are ready to eat them.
Chicken Pillows
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 2-3 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
  • 2 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • ⅛ tsp pepper
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
Chicken Pillow Sauce
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken soup
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp milk, optional depends on the thickness you want
  • Combine all ingredients together in a sauce pan until cheese is melted. Pour on top of chicken pillows
  1. Boil chicken and shred, add the cream cheese and pepper and stir until combined. Open up crescent rolls and lay out each triangle. Lightly push down on roll trying to flatten out. Add a spoonful of chicken to the thickest part of roll. Fold up corners and roll down to the tip. Try to cover all the chicken with roll. Place roll in bread crumbs until covered. Bake at 350 for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. The best part of this meal is the sauce!! So make sure you don't forget about it.

  11. I definitely think this would be a good hit with my kids and myself. I will have to add this to our menu plan one day next month. I hope I can make it as good as you made it look. (I’m not the worlds best cook. My ten year old is turning out to be a better cook than I am. It’s a case of “those who can’t teach” for sure in this case.)

    Thank you for sharing this!

  13. What a wonderful recipe, I have made these a while back and posted on my blog. Love them. nice photo andi

  14. These look really good. What I like about them is that they don’t look dry. Chicken is this type of recipe can be dry, so I am always looking for new ways to make moist chicken. Just popping over from the marvelous monday link party to say “hi”. I pinned, G+-ed, and tweeted. I’d love it if you dropped by for a visit at httpo:// . I’ll look forward to seeing you there!

  16. These look easy and delicious! I’m always looking for ways to use leftover chicken, as I usually cook a big batch and then use the leftovers for casseroles and other dishes that require a couple cups of chicken. Definitely pinning and trying these soon!

  19. My mom used to make something sort of similar called “Chicken Squares” when I was a kid but it didn’t have a sauce. You could say I’m a sauce kind of gal, so I have to try these! Pinning to my Dinner Ideas board to make soon for my family!

  29. 1/2 “what” of shredded cheese?

  30. Hi! This looks delish! I’m just wondering how much shredded cheese to add? It says 1/2 but I didn’t know if that meant cup or block? Sorry, sometimes I’m a little dense when it comes to cooking terms! Thanks!

  36. What a great recipe. I had 2 chicken breasts left over from a crock pot recipe and used them for this. I can’t wait to try with left over ham, turkey. pork and beef roast. I am especially looking forward to using this with left over beef roast….I think it will taste sensational. I was out of cream of chicken soup and used cream of mushroom instead…still delicious. Thanks for a great recipe. These will be fabulous during the holidays.

  37. These Chicken Pillows look really good. I love the sauce on them. Thank you so much for stopping by Saturday Dishes and linking up this chicken recipe. It looks great! I pinned it!
