broccoli cups

instagram food photography isn't that great but trust me these are delicious!

my sister in laws and i started a food/craft blog [
together and heidi is the genius behind this recipe. 
i made them the other night and mr. barlow couldn't stop eating them.
i took that as a good sign!

You can use reduced fat cream cheese and reduced fat crescent rolls to make it a little healthier. You could also substitute the broccoli for any vegetable you or your family like. We eat it as a main dish, but you could easily serve them as appetizers. 

1 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened (or neufatchel cheese)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted, divided
1 tablespoons minced chives
1 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups cooked broccoli
1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, 1 tablespoon butter, chives, milk, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth. Stir in the chicken and broccoli. 

Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into eight triangles; press triangles into greased muffin pan to make a cup shape. Spoon 
about 1-2 Tablespoon chicken mixture into each cup. 

Bake squares at 350 degrees F as directed on crescent roll package or until golden brown.

Number Of Servings:4
Preparation Time:20 minutes
