  • 1 lb chicken thighs boneless and skinless
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 8-oz tube seamless crescent roll dough
  • 1/2 cup chopped green chile
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan, over medium-high heat. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, season with garlic, chili, salt and pepper. Cook chicken in olive oil until browned and cooked through. Dice chicken into small pieces.

  3. Roll out croissant dough and brush on a thin layer of olive oil. Add two two of green chile to the croissant dough, leaving about 2" between the rows. Top green chile with cooked chicken, followed by cheese. Cut down the center of the croissant dough, forming two strips. On each strip, pull the seams together, encompassing the green chile, chicken and cheese mixture. Cut each log into 10 - 12 pieces, and lay out onto a baking sheet, leaving room for the croissants to rise.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 13 - 16 minutes, until croissant dough is cooked through and golden brown. Serve with dipping sauce of choice.
