Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Who doesn't love chicken pot pies? And when they are bite-sized? Even better. You will enjoy these. I'm sure of it.  


Mini Chicken Pot Pies
(adapted from here, makes 8 pot pies)

Ingredients:
- 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls 
2 to 3 small chicken breasts, cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup of yellow onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp olive oil 
- 2 tbsp melted butter, separated 
- 3 ounces of light cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons of skim milk

- 1/2 cup of peas
- 1/4 cup of shredded carrots
- Salt & Pepper, to taste 
- Non-stick cooking sray


Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. 
3. Add the chicken, garlic, and onions to the skillet and cook until the chicken is cooked through.
4. While the chicken is cooking, beat together the cream cheese and the tbsp of melted butter in a medium-sized mixing bowl, until smooth.
4. Then place the chicken, onions, and garlic once cooked into the cream cheese mixture.
5. Once those are stirred in, add the peas, shredded carrots, milk, and salt & pepper, and mix well. 
6. Set the mixture to the side and begin separating the crescent rolls into eight triangles and place them down on a baking sheet (that should be sprayed with cooking spray to prevent them from sticking).
7. Place a tbsp of filling into the center of each of the crescent roll triangles, and fold the corners up to create a seal (making sure the dough is fully sealed). 
8. Repeat this process with the remaining crescent rolls.
9. Brush the tops of each of the crescent rolls with the melted tbsp of butter, and bake for 11-13 minutes or until the rolls turn golden brown.
