Chicken Huts

One our favorite recipes are chicken huts. They are simple to make and very delicious. We recently had them given to us during a "Potluck Exchange" and they included a can of Cream of Chicken Soup. Which made them EVEN BETTER!!! 

They freeze well so I decided to make them in bulk. 

Chicken Huts
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • (2) 10 oz. cans of  cooked chicken (in the grocery store by  the canned tuna)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • (2) 8 oz. cans crescent rolls
  • 2 T melted butter
  • 2 T sesame seeds  (or bread crumbs)
  • green onions (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
  3. Open and drain canned chicken well. 
  4. Blend cream cheese, salt & pepper, chicken and green onions (optional) and mix well. 
  5. Separate each can of crescent rolls into 4 rectangles (pat severed part together). Cut each rectangular in half. (Tip - Use a pizza cutter.)
  6. Put a large spoonful of chicken mixture into each or rectangle of dough. 
  7. Pull 4 corners of dough to top of center of chicken mixture. Press corners together. 
  8. Brush top with melted butter, sprinkle with sesame seeds (or bread crumbs). 
  9. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until brown and toasted on top.
  10. (Optional)  Heat up a can of cream of chicken soup (do not add milk/water.) Spoon over huts. 
Mixing together the ingredients
The originally recipe did not call for cutting the crescent rectangular into two. The picture posted shows the difference in size. The larger ones are very filling, almost too big, which is weird since you can eat two of the smaller ones. 

You don't have to use the soup. It's optional. I like it. 

To make them in bulk, I used:
Sam's Club Canned Chicken - It is a 5-pack of 13-ounce cans. 
One Schnucks brand Canned Chicken - 10 ounces
4 - 8-ounce Cream Cheese
5 Cans of 8-count Crescent rolls
Small bunch of green onions. 

I made four large ones (for dinner and leftovers tonight) and 48 small ones. Then I ate four of them. Yea, I did. I am freezing in groups of 8.
The crescent roll - cut into two. Add the chicken mixture, then pinch together the corners.

Unbaked and Baked comparison. They really puff up.

Here's the four "large ones". I didn't cut the crescent rolls into two squares.
This is a 9x13 pan, so you can imagine how larger they are.
We had asparagus and salad as a side.
