Happiness- a dinner the whole family ate!

Mom's Melt in Your Mouth Chicken Rolls
  • 8 Rhodes Texas Rolls or similar, thawed but cold
  • 2 cups diced (very important!) cooked chicken breast (I used 2 medium cooked in the crock with a little ranch)
  • 1/3 c. diced onion
  • 3/4 c. fresh mushroom, chopped (I skipped this per hubby's request)
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 1 t. salt (I just sprinkle)
  • 6 oz. cream cheese, softened (I used neufchatel)
  • 1/2 c. ranch dressing (I use light)
  • 3-4 T. melted margarine (for dipping the rolls into)
  • half-sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed (for dipping rolls with butter into)
  1. Combine cooked chicken, onions, mushrooms, salt, pepper, cream cheese and ranch. Mix well.
  2. Flatten each roll into a circle, stretching it out at the same time. Place a rounded T. of chicken mixture in the middle. Bring each side of the roll to the middle and seal well.
  3. Dip each roll into the melted butter, then roll in the cracker crumbs.
  4. Place on sprayed cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
What an accomplishment! All the kids raved. I have made these before, but they like them so much better when the chicken is diced to the point they can't really tell it's chicken. That also helps the flavor be better distributed. This is the only recipe, along with spaghetti and orange chicken, that these guys all eat successfully.
