Craving comfort food? These Chicken Pillows are a family favorite! Crescent roll, chicken and plenty of warm gravy make this a meal that kids and adults can agree on!


  • 4 cups cooked, diced chicken
  • 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon minced onion
  • 2 packages Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 1 jar Heinz chicken gravy, warmed


  1. Mix chicken, cream cheese, butter, spices, milk and onion in bowl.
  2. Unroll crescents and using two crescent rolls at a time (to form a rectangle) fill with stuffing. Pinch up the corners (makes 8 packets). Place on a baking sheet, seam side down.
  3. Bake at 375 for about 15-20 minutes. Serve with warmed gravy! Enjoy!


  • If you have leftover chicken, that'll do wonderfully here. You can also whip up shredded chicken breast on the stove or instant pot to use for this recipe. Often, I'll grab a whole cooked chicken from the grocery store if I forgot to cook chicken in advance!
  • Not a fan of creaminess? My husband doesn't love a ton of creamy texture in his food so sometimes I'll make this meal without as much cream cheese. For those looking for a lighter version or just not into so much cheese, feel free to reduce the cream cheese by as much as half.
  • Chicken pillows are best served right away! Don't forget to heat up the gravy on the stove top. You can either pour the gravy right on top of the chicken pockets before serving or put a boat of gravy on the table so everyone can add as much or as little as they like.
