#NaBloPoMo – Cheesy Chicken Croissant Pockets

One of my least favorite things to do is to make dinner. It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking. It’s that my husband can’t ever give me a straight answer about what he wants for dinner. I get a lot of “I don’t know.” and “I’m not hungry yet.”

It’s hard to make dinner when you don’t know what the person you’re cooking for wants to eat.  That means I end up making a lot of quick one pot meals when I can. With all the pork we have in our freezer, I’ve been making a lot of Mushroom Garlic Pork Chops.

Though I recently discovered a new recipie I absolutely love- cheesy chicken croissant pockets. Unfortunately the page I had pinned from is now considered spam by Pinterest, so I thought I would share my version here.

Cheesy Chicken Croissant Pocket

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 package croissants (crescent rolls)
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can milk (in empty soup can)

*2 cups of shredded chicken is about 1/2 of a rotisserie chicken, so I went ahead and doubled the chicken and cheese for the filling so I could use the whole chicken. This is also handy if you want to have a party and double the recipe.

  1. My dear friend, if he is not a terribly picky eater, just don’t ask. He can jolly well take what’s going! If you do ask and you get “I don’t know” then say, “Well I do, we’re having X.” To any complaints, it’s time to let Himself do a bit of cooking.

    My husband is picky and choosy, but since he retired he’s done more cooking of his own and has discovered that yes, it’s work! And yes, you need to put some thought into it. A lot less complaining since he found that out! He’s still afraid to use the pressure cooker, though.

    1. hah! My husband doesn’t do much of the cooking, because I’m pretty sure he could burn water if he did. That being said, he did try to use the mandolin slicer once to cut up some potatoes for me. He cut himself though, and so now he thinks it’s the most horrible kitchen device ever.

  2. Ham and cheese in a croissant i tried, chocolate in a croissant i tried but never this. It does look delicious though as i love sweet and savoury together. my daughter was the same, never ask what they want or when they are hungry, my advise is just make whatever you fancy when you are hungry and put it on the table, if they dont like it then tough, good luck.
