Chicken Kisses

Craving comfort food? These Chicken Kisses are a family favorite!

Chicken Kisses: Pillsbury crescents with creamy chicken filling and gravy. Comfort Food Dinner!

One of my favorite dinners. Alyssa (my 12yr old) usually chooses this as her birthday dinner every year. It’s so perfect on a fall evening, very filling and quite delish too! Thank you to Aunt Sandy for sharing this recipe with me many many years ago! I don’t think I have changed it much.

Michael is a little (okay A LOT) anti-creamy. I usually use half the amount of cream cheese called for in this recipe, but for this dinner? I went all the way. And it went all the way to my thighs. You could easily though use less fat cream cheese, if it makes you feel better.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Wow. All these years and I thought I made up something. I using pressure cooked chicken or pan seared. I also just mix the chicken in the Cream Cheese and Chives bought at the store. After wrapping them up, I dip in butter, of course and then in italian bread crumbs because who does not like breaded bread! And bake. I would serve this to so many of my daughter’s friends and challenge them to name the dish. We always came up with the same name…Chicken Thingies.

    1. Oooh, love the idea of using the cream cheese and chives spread. I bet that’s flavorful. And I’ve seen others dip in butter and breadcrumbs, another delicious twist 🙂

  2. Sounds good but would have to leave out the Heinz gravy as it is full of MSG. I would have to make my own. But other than that – this sounds like something I would love to eat.

  3. I love these and make them frequently in my house for dinner. I always have so much left over filling. Do you have any recipe suggestions on what I could make with the left over filling?

    1. I have made a wreath instead of individual portions (shaping the crescents into a wreath), seems to use up more of the filling this way!!

  4. Made these for the first time last night. They turned out pretty good. I didn’t have any left over filling like a couple of people talked about. However, I did have 2 extra crescent rolls. So maybe I overstuffed mine a bit?

    What I couldn’t figure out is how you keep the bottom of these closed as the crescent rolls are precut through the center when you use them in a rectangle. I tried to pinch it together the best I could so the stuffing wouldn’t fall out.

    I actually prefer them without the gravy 🙂

  5. Has anyone ever made these ahead and frozen them? If so, bake them half way first or can you freeze them unbaked? Would love to do them ahead for a ladies luncheon

  6. I have lots of Thanksgiving leftovers, so I will give this a go tonight. I make my own gravy,so will use that…glad I found your site and thanks for posting.

  7. Sarah , you can buy a whole sheet of crescent rolls, instead of separate ones, then just roll out and cut into rectangle or squares.

  8. My girlfriend has lupus and cannot eat beef so I am always looking for a delicious way to prepare chicken. I found one! This will seem more like a treat than a meal and that will be very refreshing for us. I will happily walk extra to not skimp on the cream cheese. Thank you for helping me keep our meals fun… and so tasty!

  9. Made these tonight, using Alouette garlic & herb cheese instead of plain cream cheese and some chopped spinach . Probably should have cut back the chicken some; I had a lot of filling leftover. So I lined some muffin cups with biscuits, filled those with the extra filling, and made chicken kiss cups. 🙂

  10. These are delicious. I made them for my family this Sunday morning. Everyone loved them except my daughter, but then again she is notoriously hard to please. We ate them hot, thereafter we ate them cold for our lunch time snack, and they are fantastic! I can see this work with Cornish pasty like filling too. They are huge though. Next time I will just make each out of one crescent triangle, not two. This way they will be perfect hand pies for lunch boxes too. Overall, such a great idea!

  11. My family loves this. I roll out 1 can of crescent rolls in a 9×13 dish, drop in the filling and top with the other can of crescent rolls. Never have too much or too little filling. I also use either a roasted chicken or pre-seasoned chicken fajita chicken from the frozen section.
