    Tish's Note:

    Another Once a month meal that's sure to please. My little girl likes these because they pick up easily in her hands! *I revised this recipe based on several folks pointing out that I had made a mistake on the amount of cream cheese. Thank you so much for the input!

      I had to sub a lot of ingredients but the basics are the same. I tasted the mix as I went along and this is what I ended up with - 1/2 of a rotisserie chicken, 3 oz of neufchatel cheese, 1 small can of green chilies, a little less than 1 tbsp onion powder, and a sprinle of shredded sharp cheddar, 1/4 cup of broccoli chopped, and reduced fat crescent rolls. And I used cooking spray and seasoned bread crumbs instead of margarine and croutons. This was so fantastic. Next time I am going to try using crab meat and adding more veggies. I think this would also be good using all veggie and no meat. If you are making this for the first time I would go light on the cream cheese at first then add more to taste. And make sure you either season the chicken as you cook it or add some herbs to the mix. So so so very good. I love recipes like this that can be changed up a million ways.

      This is a FANTASTIC recipe! It taste absolutely delicious, and it's easy to eat..and pretty easy to make. Only draw back is the preperation. It can be a bit time consuming. I have one of those hand held, electric dicers, so I cut the chicken into chunks and made it into chicken crumbs. lol But it worked wonderfully and this is now my FAVORITE recipe. Thank you SOOO much for posting!

      I have the Once A Month Cooking cookbook and this is probably our favorite recipe from it.
