You say potato, I say potaato. My husband calls these Chicken Pillows. I call them Chicken Roll-Ups. But whatever you call them, these are a favorite. We save these for special occasions since in my husband’s words, “these taste like dessert.” True. They are that good. They are rich and creamy. But I’ve never complained about having dessert for dinner. And at least they are savory too.

They are simple enough for a light summer meal, yet fancy enough for a luncheon or shower. Mmm. Just talking about them makes me want to eat them again. Too bad they don’t stay around here very long.

I’m so glad my mom taught me how to make these amazing pops of goodness. The flaky crust and amazing flavor is a favorite.
