Tried 'n' True: Can’t wait to make these Crescent Chick-be-Quicks

WEST UNION, ILL. — I first tasted this recipe at a carry-in after Gene and I started attending Trinity UMC in Marshall, Ill. They were brought in by Mary Hunter. I think I got the last piece.

I finally found out she was the one who brought them. Now going through her boxes of recipes, I found this recipe.

I was so happy. I can hardly wait to make them. The chicken breast needs to be skinless and boneless.

Crescent Chick-be-Quick

1 can crushed French Fried onions

1 tablespoon flour

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

Combine together. Set aside.

1 chicken breast, cut into 16 pieces

1 egg, beaten

1 - 8 ounce can Crescent Rolls, cut into 16 pieces

• Dip chicken in egg. Then coat with onion mixture. Place one piece chicken on one crescent strip, then wrap it. Brush with egg. Place on greased cookie sheet.

• Bake 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes

Note: This recipe is for 1 or 2 people. Adjust for more people.
