Cheesy chicken crescent pie

I am not proud of the ingredients of this dish. However, I am proud of how incredibly easy and delicious it is. Just goes to show I don't have to be all snobby about making everything from scratch all the time!

So I borrowed a cook book from my good friend Corinna, and there were these like crescent dough rings in there, filled with all sorts of things. Immediately I thought of making something like chicken pie, and then a major lightbulb went on in my head.

You know those things you buy and store in the freezer for months and months because you don't know why you bought them in the first place?

Enter Green Giant's Just for One! Broccoli with Cheese. I've had these things in the freezer for like a year and I just don't ever feel like eating them. This was the perfect occasion for getting rid of those babies in an incredibly delicious way.


I just mixed these babies with chicken and placed it on a ring of crescent dough and voila!

Cheesy chicken crescent pie
Servings: 4
Prep time: 0 min
Cook time: 35 min
Total time: 35 min

1 roll crescent dough
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 Just for One! Broccoli with Cheese Sauce packets, frozen
1/2 cup assorted frozen vegetables
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp chicken bouillon powder
1/8 tsp rosemary
1/8 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp butter, melted
1 garlic clove, in chunks
dash of seasoned salt

Preheat the oven to 365 F.

In a small mortar, combine the butter and garlic. Mush the garlic into the butter well and let sit while everything cooks.




Fill a medium sized pot with water and bring to a boil. When boiling, add the chicken breasts and cook on high for 7-10 minutes, until no longer pink inside.

In a big pot, add the four broccoli packets, frozen veggies, salt, rosemary, pepper, paprika and chicken bouillon. Cook with medium-high heat until the cheese melts and starts to boil. Lower the heat to low and let cook while the chicken finishes cooking, about 5 minutes. (If you take a look at my picture, I combined cauliflower and broccoli packets, but it's all the same!)

When the chicken is done, drain the water and cut it up in little chunks. Add the chunks to the broccoli pot and stir together well. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the crescent dough triangles in a circular shape, with the tips facing out.

Fill the center with the chicken and broccoli mixture, then fold the tips over to meet in the center. Brush the top of the dough with the butter-garlic mixture and sprinkle the seasoned salt on top. Parmesan is a good idea too!

Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven when done and serve in wedges with some sour cream and tomato slices. Enjoy!
