I had some leftover Rotisserie Chicken, frozen spinach, and cream cheese.

These puffs make a great Lunch or a Snack. Chicken and Spinach just go so well together!

You can make 4 Large Puffs with the following recipe.

How to make Chicken and Spinach Puffs

  • First, thaw the frozen spinach. Choose the method that works best for you.
  • Method 1: In microwave according to package directions.
  • Method 2: Running under warm water.
  • Method 3: On the stovetop boiling with a bit of water for a couple of minutes.
  • Drain spinach, squeezing the excess liquid from it.

Chicken and Spinach Puffs ingredients

  • In the bowl: mix chicken, cream cheese, and the drained spinach. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Chicken and Spinach Puffs prep

  • Open the crescent rolls can. On the floured surface unroll the dough.
  • Pinch together two triangles to make a square. Use a bit of water to seal it. I usually stretch the dough using the rolling pin since I try to reduce the calories, I stretch so I have strong enough dough to hold in the filling, instead of a thick crust, which is a lot more calories.
  • Add as much filling as you like in the center of your square.
  • Bring the corners to the center (see picture) and wet the edges to seal.
