There are a lot of recipes out there for Chicken Baseballs (as I call them). Other people have different names for this recipe, but I have always called them baseballs! I found this recipe years ago when I was following the weight watcher plan. There are different variations out there so I am going to give you mine!
1 Tbsp Melted Butter
2 cooked chicken breast
In a skillet sprayed with cooking spray, saute chicken seasoned with seasoned salt until done. Remove chicken and let cool. Dice chicken and set aside.
In mixing bowl, mix cream cheese, 2 Tbsp milk, 1-1/2 tsp minced dried onion, 1 Tbsp melted butter until well blended. Add chicken and cream cheese mixture.
Open can of crescent dough. There are 8 triangles and 2 triangles make a rectangle. With pastry roller, take two triangles and roll out into a rectangle. Place 1/2 cup of chicken mix in center of pastry and fold up dough to completely coat filling. It should look like this: (oh, you sprinkle bread crumbs on top of the baseball before baking – I use Italian seasoned bread crumbs)
You can enjoy these with your Grumpy or all by yourself, they are good anyway you eat them! I had mine with Grumpy.
I decided we needed dessert. Well, we didn’t need it, but after the day we had, we certainly deserved it! So, I decided to make Hershey’s Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. This is where my luck started to run out. I was doing so well, the cake was looking good before I put it in the oven, but when it came out, something didn’t seem right. When it was time to have some dessert, I spooned into it to serve, and there was no pudding!! I believe the mistake I made was I used boiling water instead of hot tap water (because of our frozen water problem). I’ve made this before and it turned out perfect. It still didn’t look bad.
It was somewhat edible (the edges were nice and chewy) but I won’t make the boiling water mistake again!
So, we sit here tonight, our water hopefully remaining unfrozen, Peabody a bit sore and smelling like the stuff they use at the vets, Miss Kitty on Grumpy’s chair and Chubby in the window seat, watching Prison Break. What a day. *Big Sigh*
