My "Go To" Party Recipe

This  recipe is something I made up from several other recipes that are similar.  I changed some of the ingredients to things that my family likes.

  You are not going to be happy with me because I don't measure anything but I will try to make it easy on you. 

I call this  recipe......Broccoli Cheese and Chicken Bites

First your ingredients:

  Chicken - I buy a rotisserie chicken and we eat the dark meat and I just use the white meat and my animals get the carcass and everyone is happy.  I chop up the chicken into small pieces. You can use any kind of chicken you like.

Broccoli - I buy one large head of fresh broccoli, you can also buy frozen.  I boil these until they are very soft. Drain well and then I use paper towels to soak up as much liquid as I can.   Chop up into small pieces.



Cheese - I used sharp cheddar cheese about 1 cup.  Add more or less according to your taste.  I have also used mild cheddar whatever you prefer. Then combine the broccoli, chicken, cheese and mayo.



Mayonnaise - Start with 1/2 cup and keep adding until your ingredients bind together.  I also sprinkle some Tony's Seasoning to add a little spice to it but you don't have to.  At this point you could just use this mixture as a dip (which I have done), you can eat it with crackers (delicious) or you can put it in crescent rolls (everyones favorite)



Crescent Rolls - I'm sure you can neatly cut them into squares and put into your muffin pan but I just tear off a piece and shape it as I go....I'm all about easy.  Spray your muffin pan first with Pam.
I'm using the miniature muffin pan.  When I didn't use the muffin pan I left my crescent rolls in the rectangle shape as they come out of the crescent roll container and placed this chicken mixture in the middle and rolled it up on either side and cooked them that way.  Either way is fine, the miniature muffin tin makes prettier appetizers.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes - they cook very quickly.
I doubled my recipe and it made two large pans of Broccoli Bites.

Yum! Delicious!  It's always a hit at the party!  Enjoy!
