Super Easy Chicken in a Blanket

Although I've never met her, Cynthia in Atlanta sent this to me via an e-mail recipe exchange - something like a chain letter where you're forced to reveal one of your all-time favorite recipes or some horrible evil thing will happen to you. She said: "I make this on nights when I’m working and tired but want something a little more sophisticated than hot dogs." It was really good! My boyfriend had no idea it was just cream cheese inside. He thought I had spent lots of time making a special filling. Next time I may try one of the cream cheeses they sell with flavoring already in it, like herb or sun dried tomato.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cut chicken breasts in half. Spread a layer of cream cheese on the chicken breast, then sprinkle the seasoning on top. Cover with mushrooms.
  3. Leave croissants in a rectangle (2 croissants) and press together so it won’t separate. Roll it over the top of the chicken and wrap under as far as possible.
  4. Bake on a cookie sheet until golden brown and chicken is done through.

I was in such a hurry the other night making these that I totally forgot the italian seasoning. They were good. BUt I bet it's even better with the seasonings. Thanks for posting.

Very good! I made with pork since it was fresh and the chicken was still frozen. Will definitely try again with chicken. I added some chopped sundried tomatoes for a little extra flavor. I'll bet cream cheese with chives would taste good too!

I liked that this is low in fat and calories. I used 4 very thin chicken breasts with this because I knew I wouldn't be able to bake them long with the crescent roll topping. I baked mine 25 minutes and the crescents rolls were a nice golden brown. I love the mushrooms with these, but I wasn't crazy about the cream cheese with this. Next time, I think I will use a reduced fat swiss or provolone cheese to suit our tastes. For me, there was a bit too much Italian seasoning so I would also reduce that as well. Also, don't forget to lightly grease your cookie sheet or use a nonstick pan. Thanks for posting this unique recipe!
