(image of something as close as I could find to what I make)
I asked our Facebook fans to choose which of two recipes they’d like me to share & this was the popular vote….chicken tarts! First of all, let me say that I got this recipe from a friend & small group member Lindsay. It’s one of the quickest & easiest meals I’ve made that I think tastes better than the time alloted on it would suggest.
1 pkg chicken tenderloins (or if you’re feeling lazy shredded rotisserie chicken meat or canned chicken)
1/2 pkg cream cheese (I use light)
1/4 c mayo (again I use light)
Seasoning blend (I usually use seasoned salt or my fav Jane’s Crazy Salt)
1 egg, beaten
1 pkg crescent rolls (yet again reduced fat for this girl)
Chopped pecans (optional)
Cook chicken & cut into bite size pieces. Mix w/ cream cheese & mayo; add seasoning to taste. Mix in pecans. Divide crescent rolls into squares. Place chicken mixture in center; fold each corner to top to make “tart.” Brush w/ beaten egg and bake according to crescent roll directions.
VOILA! How easy was that?! And so good. You can mix this up to your taste though, try different seasonings like pepper, paprika, basil or add in cheese or onions. It really is a versatile recipe as well–yet another reason to love it.
