I am skipping around and blogging about this topic today because it's on my mind.

I do not cook.

I can ... sort of. But I have never had the patience, and my repertoire is extremely limited. I do have one really good meal that I can make. But it is extremely not healthy, so I don't make it often. However, I had the day off yesterday and offered to make it for the family. I even snapped a picture on Sir Percy before we ate.

The meal is called chicken pillows. I got the recipe from my sister-in-law. They are delicious. And I do everything I can to lessen how fattening they are, and I think they still taste just as awesome. So I am assuming I am supposed to give you the actual recipe right? I tried to be lazy and look it up so I could just link to it, but there are at least a dozen or so versions, so here is what I do:

The pillows are in the back bowl.
8 oz. cream cheese
5-6 chicken strips, cooked and shredded
2 packages crescent rolls
melted butter
seasoned breadcrumbs
2 cans cream of chicken soup
sour cream
(I do fat free cream cheese, sour cream and chicken soup and reduced fat crescent rolls)

Mix together the cooked chicken and the cream cheese. Place tablespoon size of mixture onto unrolled crescent rolls. Fold to make a little pillow. Roll in melted butter and then breadcrumbs. Place on cookie sheet, and bake according to crescent roll packaging.

For the sauce, mix together the sour cream and the soup in a saucepan and heat on the stove until runny. Now I usually just estimate on the sour cream, but I think my sister-in-law's recipe is 1 cup for 1 can of soup, but that is never enough gravy, so about 2 cups  for the two cans I suppose. Pour over chicken pillows. I always make it with mashed potatoes, and the gravy goes well on those as well. Then I include broccoli or another vegetable.

Man, I am almost embarrassed publishing this recipe,  it is so bad. Did I mention I cut out a bunch of butter from the original recipe? It really is just a ONCE-IN-A-WHILE treat, but so good; enjoy it sparingly. This is a double batch that makes 16 pillows. They actually reheat really well on day two.

Mmmmmm. We make those around here. We call them chicken roll ups. So good. I don't even try to cut out any of the fat. They re just too yummy! I've never tired them with gravy though. That sounds good. I may have to try it next time. I always just dip them in a little ranch dressing. Bryan likes them plain. Mmmm. Now I'm hungry for them. It's a good thing I don't have any rolls or I would be out in the kitchen right now at 10:36 making them and bryan would think I was extra crazy. Ha ha. This is a long rambeling comment. Sorry. I'll go to bed now...
