Greek Chicken Pockets

Here's the Dish

My Chicken Enchilada Pockets were such a hit, that I’ve decided to make a few different variations! After tasting an amazing Greek Style Pizza while we were on vacation, I knew that I was going to be incorporating these flavors into my first variation of these ‘pockets’ as soon as I got home!

These Greek Chicken Pockets are delicious and packed with so many wonderful flavors that you’ll never believe they’re healthy! When paired with a side Greek salad, this dish makes an excellent meal that is filling yet surprisingly light! They would also be perfect as an after school snack, or served as an appetizer on game day!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 25-30 Minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil, (for easy clean up) and spray with non-stick cooking spray

2

Cut the tomatoes, onion, and red pepper into thin bite-sized pieces.

3

In a medium sized bowl, mix together the hummus, chicken, and the feta.

4

Next, add the chopped veggies.

5

Then add the spices, and stir until everything is well combined.

6

Unroll and separate crescent rolls on prepared baking sheet in preparation to make the pockets. Scoop about 1/8th cup (or about 2 tbs) of chicken mixture into the center of the largest part of the crescent roll.

7

Pull outer corners of the crescent over the chicken mixture.

8

Pull the ‘long’ segment of the crescent roll dough over the ‘tucked’ corners to make a pocket that fully encloses the chicken filling. (Note: There is no real art to this, in fact I did each one a little differently, and they all turned out great! The only real key is to make sure the chicken filling is fully enclosed by the dough so it won’t spill out when baking!)

To make the top look like a little pocket, I twisted the dough to a point on top.

Bake at 375 for 15 Minutes, or until top of crescent rolls are golden brown.

Serve warm and enjoy!

Ingredients

1 can Reduced fat pillsbury crescent dough
1/2 cup Chicken breast, cooked and chopped into small chunks
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Red pepper hummus
1/4 cup Red onion, chopped

Katie's Tip!

There is no real art to pulling the corners over the chicken, in fact I did each one a little differently, and they all turned out great! The only real key is to make sure the chicken filling is fully enclosed by the dough so it won’t spill out when baking!

Made these last night and my Husband couldn’t get enough! My little ones loved them too, I had to make one without the “veggies” for my 5 year old, but he loved the chicken and hummus! :)
