Chicken Broccoli Rolls

Chicken Broccoli Rolls:

2 pkgs crescent rolls
4 cups shredded or cubed chicken, cooked*
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups chopped broccoli, cooked (parboiled)
salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees (follow crescent roll package instructions)

Lay out crescent roll triangles. Fill top portion with scoop of chicken, scoop of broccoli, sprinkle cheese on top, and salt and pepper. Roll toward small end of triangle. Place on baking sheet and bake for 11min (follow directions on package of crescent rolls). Makes 16 rolls.

*I marinated chicken breasts in italian dressing, then grilled it and chopped into small pieces. You could use canned chicken, shred up chicken from a rotisserie chicken, or whatever cooked chicken sounds good to you.

About half way through I started wrapping the ends back over the sides as I rolled them. This made more of a closed pocket than a crescent roll shape. I liked the way those came out better, it held the filling in better. You can really use any meat, cheese, veggie combo with these. I think ham and swiss would be good. I think a wetter meat mixture might be good too (like chicken salad or tuna salad).
