Yesterday I was asked to take a meal to a new mom. The girl goes to my church, and we always try to make sure a new mom doesn’t have to cook. It’s hard to know what to take to a new mom. When I had my babies I didn’t like anything spicy because of nursing. My babies both had upset tummies if I ate anything spicy. Also as a new mom you are always starving. Your body just can’t keep up with those sweet, eating 24/7 babies. I needed something that was going to keep this new mom satisfied.
Chicken roll-ups it was. I also fed them to my family last night. They were a hit, so I hope the new momma loved them too! What is your go to meal to take into a new mom or a sick friend of family?? I would love to hear.
2 rolls of refrigerated crescent rolls
2 large chicken breast
2 pkg of cream cheese
green onions diced
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 T of butter
garlic salt and pepper
Italian bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Once heated place defrosted chicken breast on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, checking often for readiness. Once cooked place in a kitchen aid or any choice mixer to shred the chicken.
Add room temperature cream cheese, preferred amount of green diced green onions, sprinkle garlic salt and pepper on top. Mix everything in the mixer until blended well.
Melt butter in the microwave for a minute. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Take crescent rolls and roll them out with a rolling pin just enough to fit a large spoonful of chicken mixture in the middle of dough. Take each side of roll and fold it over the chicken and crimp the sides so the chicken mixture wont leak out.
Brush each roll with butter and sprinkle with Italian bread crumbs.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
While the rolls are baking place 2 cans of cream of chicken soup in a sauce pan. Also add the milk and cook over medium heat. Heat and stir until hot. Serve over or on the side of rolls.
