Cheesy Chicken Poof

Oh I how I wish this blog could have the sense of smell and taste added because this recipe was a hit with both senses. As I was cooking the chicken, then the onions, butter, and garlic powder the smell was filling the Kitchen. I was wishing the baking time was over just to take a taste of this divine smell. I have to thank Yummy (my cousin's wife) for this newest hit. I do love her recipes and web site. (You can find a link under My Blog List; she also has a site on Facebook.) I found that some of her Halloween goodies, I typically make as well, but just a little different. As you know from reading my past post, our house can be a challenge to cook for lately, me with high blood pressure, Todd with diabetes, and picky eaters makes cooking a challenge to find a hit that everyone truly can enjoy. I did adjust her recipe a little bit to make it have less sodium.


  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. (Here is one adjustment, Yummy has 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced.)
  • 8 ounce container of flavored cream cheese (If you want to lower the sodium avoid the low fat. I have noticed if the fat has been lowered, the sodium has increased.)
  • 2 tbsp no salt butter (Another substitution, I replaced the butter with no salt butter.)
  • 2 rolls thick and buttery crescent rolls
  • 6 slices pepper jack cheese


  1. Cook chicken breasts until brown and test done. Remove from pan, in same pan, cook onions and garlic powder in 2 tbsp no salt butter until browned and tender. Shred chicken when cooled enough to handle. Add cream cheese, onions and garlic and mix well.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Unroll crescent rolls and press two triangles together, forming a rectangle. Divide chicken mixture between the 6 crescent rectangles and top with cheese slice. Pull crescent rolls up around mixture, being careful not to get dough to thick at top… this will make it hard to get the dough cooked thoroughly.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until dough is browned and done.
