On work nights, sometimes quick and easy is the only way to go. With our busy lives, we can be eating dinner as late as 7 pm so making a homemade meal can be very challenging during the week. In comes Pillsbury Crescent Rolls to the rescue.
All you need is some cooked shredded chicken, bbq sauce, frank's red hot, colby cheese and crescent rolls. I had a couple of chicken breasts I had already cooked so I shredded 1 of them and that equaled about 1 cup. You could always use the ever convenient rotisserie chicken if you want to save yourself cooking the chicken ahead of time.
These worked out pretty well for me and would be a great item to feed guests at a party - kids and adults alike!
This recipe is adapted from Pillsbury's BBQ Chicken Crescents found on allrecipes.com.
I have worked out the Weight Watcher's Points Plus using their Recipe Builder and these are 4 WW Points per crescent. Enjoy!
