During an impromptu visit with Jamie, she sent me home with a leftover, lemon pepper Rotisserie chicken she picked up at the grocery store. After making sandwiches the first night, I pulled off the meat and simmered the bones with veggies for stock knowing I would make Cream of Chicken Soup for dinner the next day.
I have several standby recipes for leftover chicken, but this time decided to make a basic chicken salad as a filling for a can of crescent rolls that have been in the fridge.
Comforting soup and yummy crescents to warm on a chilly and rainy spring day.
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
squeeze of fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise
fresh herbs (I used chives, parsley and small amount of Rosemary)
Salt and pepper to taste
Gently toss all of the ingredients together until combined.
Can be served on a plate of lettuce leaves, on a Croissant or bread of choice.
To make Chicken Salad Crescent Rolls, spoon a scant 1/4 cup of the chicken salad onto each triangle and roll-up. Bake on baking sheet @375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. (I had more than enough filling to make 8 roll-ups)
