Garlic Chicken Puffs

I cook and bake a lot.  I make dinner almost every night for my family, as well as bake goodies for friends, teachers, doctors and family members.  I really do enjoy being in the kitchen and feeding others.  But one recipe area I lack is appetizers.  That's why I was so happy I tried these yummy (and easy) chicken puffs.  These were a snap to put together and a hit with young and old alike.

Garlic Chicken Puffs
adapted from: TidyMom's Garlic Chicken Puffs Recipe

6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon garlic salt
¾ cup canned chicken breast, shredded
2 (8 count) cans refrigerator crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 375ºF.  Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with no stick spray.

Mix cream cheese, garlic powder, garlic salt and chicken with spoon in medium mixing bowl until well blended.

Unroll crescent rolls and divide rolls into four rectangles (two triangles rolls in each square). Cut each rectangle in half, then cut each half diagonally to create 4 triangles. (You should get 16 triangles from each package of rolls.)

Place 1 teaspoon of chicken mixture onto the center of each triangle and fold corners up and over the filling.

Place puffs on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 11-14 minutes or until lightly browned.

Yield: 32 puffs

Notes: I just mashed the chicken with  a fork to shred it quickly and easily.  You could substitute your own cooked, shredded chicken for the canned chicken.  These also reheat in the oven well!
