  • 1 can ((4-oz) diced green chilies)
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. chili powder
  • 3 cups cooked (, diced/shredded chicken (Rotisserie chicken works great))
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans Pillsbury crescent rolls

  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 small avocado (, diced)
  • 1/3 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chopped (, fresh cilantro)

  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and sour cream until well combined. Mix in salt, pepper, green chilies, cumin and chili powder, mix until smooth. Add in chicken and stir until combined.
  3. Open the crescent rolls, take 2 triangular rolls and push together at perforated seam to make into a square. Make sure you seal the perforations well so your filling doesn’t come out. Put about a 1/3 cup of chicken mixture in the center of each square. Fold the dough corners to the center over the chicken mixture forming rectangle shaped pocket.
  4. Dip each pillow in melted butter on both sides. Roll in crushed stuffing covering both sides.
  5. Place chicken pockets on a lined or greased cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a golden brown.
  6. Serve topped with black bean salsa.
  7. To make Salsa: Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for a couple hours.
