Chicken Popovers

At the request of my dear friend and neighbor, Nancy, I'm sharing the recipe for chicken popovers. I had these for the first time when we visited my sis-in-law in Michigan over a year ago. She made them in front of me and I immediately got the recipe. Since then, I've made them at least 7 or 8 times and lost the recipe, but I can pretty much wing it. Here's the basics:

Chicken Popovers

2 tubes of pilsbury crescent rolls
1 lb (or a little more) of chicken, cooked and cubed
4 oz (half a block) of cream cheese, softened/at room temp
1/4 cup of butter, softened/at room temp
couple shakes of garlic powder
couple shakes of onion powder/flakes
1/2 tsp of salt
approx. 35-40 garlic croutons

1. Cook and cube chicken, then preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, butter and seasonings, then add chicken and stir until well mixed
3. On a baking sheet, lay out two crescent roll triangle and press the seams together making a rectangle.
4. Spoon a couple spoonfuls of the chicken mixture and seal the crescent roll around the mixture.
5. Repeat until all the crescents and mixture are gone--should make 8 popovers
6. Press 4-5 croutons onto the top of the popovers and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

That looks great. I'm going to have to try that. For dinner tonight perhaps.

What are the croutons for? Do they add something to the recipe or are they just for looks mostly? Thanks for taking the time to share your recipes with us!

they actually do add to the taste. I was really hesitant to try that part--it just seemed weird, but now it's one of my favorite parts. Let me know what you think if you try it! :)
