Mama’s Chicken Roll Ups – Yumbo

Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 1.35.03 PM

Mama’s Chicken Roll Ups
Oh my gosh, this is a keeper! Back on my timeline by popular request! 

2 large chicken breast
1 can crescent rolls
1 10.5 oz. can cream of chicken soup
1/2 soup can of broth (use what the chicken cooked in)
1/2 soup can milk
1 T. all purpose flour
6 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
pinch of salt and pepper

NOTE: The 1/2 soup can is using the empty can of cream of chicken soup to measure.

Place the chicken in a pot and cover with water, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and cook till chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken (save broth). When cooled enough to handle remove the chicken from the bone and shred, set aside. Whisk together the soup, broth, milk, flour, salt and pepper. Unroll the crescent dough and separate into the triangles. Place a little cheese over the dough and at the larger end place a good heaping of the chicken. Roll up and place in a 9×13 casserole dish. Repeat with remaining. Once all are in the dish, pour the soup mix around each one and then drizzle a little over the tops (not too much). Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes, remove and top with a little more cheese and return to the oven for 5 minutes. Let sit for a couple of minutes before serving, the soup mixture will thicken up like a gravy.

Rose Shaped Baked Apple Dessert

This looks bloody delicious. I am going to have it for desert this week.

Made with lots of soft and delicious apple slices, wrapped in sweet and crispy puff pastry

 

2015-03-13+119+p

Ingredients: to make 6 roses
1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
2 red organic apples ( red delicious)
half lemon, juice
1 tablespoon of flour, to sprinkle the counter
3 tablespoons of apricot preserve
cinnamon (optional)
powder sugar for decorating (optional)

Preparation time: 45 minutes
Directions:
1. Thaw the puff pastry if you haven’t done so yet. It should take 20-30 minutes.
2. Prepare a bowl with some water and the lemon juice. Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples in paper thin slices, as shown in my picture. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses. Right away, place the sliced apples in the bowl with lemon and water, so that they won’t change color.

3. Microwave the apples in the bowl, for about 3 minutes, to make them slightly softer.
4. Unwrap the puff pastry oven a clean and lightly floured counter. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough a little, trying to keep it in a rectangular shape. Cut the dough in 6 strips.
5. In a bowl, place three tablespoons of apricot preserve with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute, so that the preserve will be easier to spread. Spread the preserve on the dough.
6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drain the apples.
7. Place the apples on the dough, as shown in my picture. Sprinkle with cinnamon if you’d like.

10. Do the same for all 6 roses. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked. Sprinkle with powder sugar.

Looks fabulous worth the try and very impressive to guests I should imagine
