I fall into the second category. Socials stress me out. I never know what to bring and my cooking skills are still at your basic college level. The only thing that I really do know after three years of socials is that store bought food is usually very low on the totem pole. It seems like everyone at my school will refuse to eat cookies or baked goods from the grocery store. So I thought I would share the one decent recipe I have for socials today.
Fail-proof Chicken Crescent Rolls
|My version is modified from this one: http://basicbites.blogspot.com/2010/08/chicken-crescent-rolls.html|
2 cans of white meat chicken
1.5 containers of garden vegetable cream cheese
2 containers of 8 count crescent rolls
Drain the chicken and mash up the chunks into small threads. Mix with the cream cheese until well blended. Then place a spoonful of the cream cheese chicken mixture onto each crescent roll. Roll the crescent rolls up and then bake according to the directions on the can. I like to let my crescent rolls just get a touch of golden color before taking them out of the oven.
You can add extra ingredients to the cream cheese mixture. I've used celery and sage in them. I've also used several different kinds of cream cheese spreads. My favorite is the vegetable medley.
