Spicy Chicken Bites

It's like Cinco de Mayo landed in your facehole.

Ingredients

6
tablespoons mayonnaise, divided
1
(4.5 ounce) can Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
2
tablespoons Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix, divided
1
rotisserie chicken, shredded and chopped
1/2
cup chopped cilantro leaves
1 1/2
cups shredded cheddar cheese
1
pinch salt
2
(8 ounce) tubes Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent rolls
2
teaspoons fresh lime juice

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • 2 In a large bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, the green chiles and 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning. Add the chicken to the bowl and stir to combine.
  • 3 Add the cilantro and cheese and stir to combine. Season with a pinch of salt.
  • 4 Roll out the crescent roll dough on a baking sheet. Place a meatball-sized dollop at the corner of each dough triangle. Pull the dough around the mix, and pinch to seal.
  • 5 Continue with the remaining crescent rolls and bake on an ungreased baking sheet for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • 6 In the meantime, whisk together the remaining mayo, lime juice and taco seasoning. Serve chicken bites with this mayo-lime dipping sauce.

Step By Step  

Spicy Chicken Bites make a great party appetizer!

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Chickeny pockets of bitey bliss. The end.

This here mess is some serious business. Not serious as in how hard it is to make, because, hi, do you know me at all? Shortcut Sally. But serious as in how incredible it is to either a) bite into or b) pull apart these lil' bites of seriousness. 

Serious. 

They're perfect on so many levels. All the after-school snack levels. All the lock yourself in the bathroom with a platter of these and a bottle of prosecco levels. All the levels. 

Just little Pillsbury crescent roll ball thingies stuffed with chopped chicken, green chiles, lil' bit of mayo, taco seasoning, cilantro and LOTS OF CHEESE. Sorry to scream.

I mentioned how serious these are, right?

Okay! Start by shreddin' up a rotis. Easy sneezy.

Then give it a really good chop. You don't think it will make much difference, BUT IT DOES. I can't stop yelling at you.

Then in a bowl, whisk together a few tablespoons of mayo, Old El Paso taco seasoning and diced green chiles. Ridic.

Then mix the mayo with the chicken and toss toss. Add some cilantro. Goodness gracious.

And cheese. Never stop.

Now roll out the crescent dough triangles and place a 1-inch chicken meatball in the corner of each triangle.

Then just roll the dough up around the chicken and pinch it together to seal! Diddly done.

Baked. Glory be.

The insides. Hallelujah.

The close up. Oh hi, beautiful.

Dip in some mayo/lime juice/taco seasoning that you made while you were crying for these to finish baking. 

 

Bev cried. No, she actually did. For more musings, visit her blog at Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
