What's Cooking Wednesday 1/20

Tonight we are taking left over meatballs from the freezer and having sandwiches. So I decided to post one of my families favorite recipes.
Under-Cover Chicken
2-3 skinless, boneless chicken breast or tenders (tenders are cheaper usually about .99 a pound)
2 Tbsp.butter or Extra Virgin Olive oil
8oz softened cream cheese ( .50 - 1.00 for 8oz)

1 package fresh mushrooms(1.50)
4 green onions- chopped(.99 will have left overs)
1/4 tsp. salt
2-3 gloves garlic chopped fine(.99 buy a full garlic to get add. meal)
1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls(.50 w/sale and coupon)
(you could also add 1 package of your favorite shredded cheese if you love cheese)

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and cook in butter. *TIP* I like to saute my garlic in the butter for about 30 seconds before I add the chicken. Leave chicken under cooked slightly.  Place chicken in greased casserole dish. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, mushrooms, onion, and salt. Spoon mixture over chicken. Unroll douch into one rectangle; seal seams at perforations. Place dough over chicken and seal against dish. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes or until crescent roll is cooked.

Serves 4 Total meal cost: $6.48 (could be less if you have things on hand) Cost per person: $1.62

This week I was asked by someone if I would be including a Mr. Linky..... I will invest in one (would cost me) if I get enough people wanting to link up. So if you would like to feature this on your blog post a comment. Until I make a decision about a linky..... post a link to your blog 'What's Cooking' and I will add a link in post!

Also if you try this recipe I would love to hear what you think, family thinks, or do different. 

Want another recipe try my friend preparing for our childrens future.
