Cooking Thursday

I recently found this recipe that tastes like chicken pot pie, but looks prettier.  We all liked it!

Chicken Pot Pie Crescent Braid

1 can Pillsbury Recipe Creations (if not available, you can use crescent rolls and press the perforations out.)
1 cup cooked chicken
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
1/2 cup cream of chicken condensed soup
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the frozen veggies, cheddar cheese, and chicken. In a separate bowl mix together the cream cheese and the condensed soup. Add it to the chicken-veggie mixture.
Spread the crescent roll dough out on parchment paper and place that on a baking pan. Leaving three inches in the middle, make cuts down the side of the dough an inch apart on both sides.
Spread the chicken-veggie-soup mixture down the middle of the dough. Take a strip of dough from one side and fold it over the middle mixture. Then take a strip from the other side and fold it over the middle. Continue down the dough, alternating sides until it is completely folded over.
Pinch the ends of the dough to keep the filling inside while it bakes.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes so that the top is nice and golden brown.
 Let stand about 10 minutes before cutting into it.

That looks really good and to us, anything made using crescent rolls is the best.

You lost me on the dough cutting! You'll have to start putting pictures of the various steps like the food bloggers do, hahaha!!

Looks yummy. I don't think this will work on Weight Watchers. I'm trying so hard. Maybe this could be one of my recipes for Christmas. I loved the one you posted last week. I did it and ate most of the chicken. David ate the good stuff. Thanks for the post.

Isn't that so pretty! I love the look of that!

That sounds so good...you always have the best recipes, Mari! Thanks for sharing.

Sally Crowe said...

oh, I like that, Mari. And, making it this way leaves a lot of unneeded bread/dough. So it should be lighter. I'm going to try it and try NOT to burn the house down. :)

Thanks!

Looks good. We actually had turkey pot pie tonight.

Mmmmm, pot pies. One of my favorite dishes. Now this looks so very scrumptious.

Would not be Joe's favorite, but I would LOVE this!! My mom always made turkey pot pie with Bisquick, as the last hoorah for the Thanksgiving turkey. Always yummy to me!!

Dee said...

Hi Mari! This looks so elegant! You did a great job on the crust. I think I would take out the peas (not a big fan), but the rest of it sounds heavenly. I bet it really fills you up too!
Thursday blessings,
Ceil

Looks delicious! We enjoyed turkey pot pies a few days ago.

It is pretty! I often make the basic soup pot-pie with Bisquick topping, but this does look nicer.

What a great idea for a different version of a "pie", it looks lovely. xx

I cannot imagine how all that stays together, but with your patience and talent, I am sure that it works.
