These cheesy ranch chicken pockets are a fun variation of one of my favorite dishes while growing up. My mom would make a cream cheese and chicken filling wrapped in refrigerated crescent dough.
The crescent dough would then get a coating of breadcrumbs. These chicken pillows would then be served with a creamy sauce. Now this variation has no sauce but it is not missed at all. Mainly because the filling for these cheesy ranch chicken pockets includes cheesy goodness.
The filling for these pockets combines chicken, cream cheese, dry ranch dressing mix, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt, and pepper. Then this is wrapped in the crescent dough. The way I folded the dough around the filling is different from my chicken pillows. This way my family can tell a difference between the two when I serve them.
These pockets also get brushed butter followed with a sprinkling of bread crumbs. However, with this version I used the Italian seasoned bread crumbs. These are a fun variation to serve up. I really love the combination of the cheddar and mozzarella cheese paired with the ranch dressing mix. So delicious!
