Pinterest Challenge: Day 5–Cranberry Chicken Crescents

Yes, I’m a couple days behind.  Forgive me!

Well, a couple of days ago my kids and I were at home wondering what the heck we were going to eat for dinner.  It was one of those days that we had practically nothing in the house, a trip to the grocery store was MORE than overdue, and Mom (that’s me) refused to take all the kids to the store so…. we had to do some serious scrounging to figure out what we were going to eat. 

Never mind the fact that we had already done the scrimping and scrounging for lunch.  It was time to do it again.

The only thing we knew we could have for sure was corn on the cob.  We have some awesome friends/neighbors who left to go out of town for 12 days and they were worried about the produce in the fridge going bad.  And we were the lucky recipients of their food!  Woohoo! 

So, the search was on for the main course.  So glad there is Pinterest in my time of need!  First I searched my own boards but for every recipe I found that might work I was always missing a few key ingredients.  I finally resorted to the Search Bar (it still counts for my Pinterest challenge, right?).  I had crescent rolls in my fridge and a couple of cans of chicken.  I searched for ‘Chicken Crescents’ and a whole bunch of things came up. 

Then I saw one for Cranberry Chicken Crescents.  PERFECT!!  I had a can of cranberry sauce downstairs in our storage room.

This was probably the simplest of simple recipes.  First preheat your oven to the temperature noted on your 2 cans of refrigerated crescent rolls (if you’re afraid of opening the tube {like I am} your kids will be happy to do it for you ;)).  Mix together 2 cans of chicken (drained) and a can of cranberry sauce (whole or jellied).  Put a large spoonful into each crescent, roll, and bake for amount of time noted on package. 

TADA!  Now you’ve got what makes for a GREAT… lunch.  Except that we had it for dinner and everyone loved them!  I was surprised.  Even Anthony (who claims to hate cranberries) loved it!

Yum! I actually have crescents right now but no cranberry sauce! I will have to try this in the future. It would be a great Thanksgiving leftover meal!
