Greek Stuffed Crescent Rolls

This recipe was inspired by my amazingly creative sister in law (Hi Ronika!). One night, she shared what she was making for dinner and sent over the recipe. Though I didnt have quite a few of the ingredients the recipe called for, I was able to come up with a similar version using what I had on hand, and the result was fantastic! This recipe is very versatile and could be modified with a variety of veggies, meats and cheeses to suit your liking. It came together fairly quickly, and though it seemed intimidating at first, it ended up being pretty easy!

First, I baked a package of chicken tenders. I rubbed them with a greek seasoning mix (oregano, thyme, basil, salt, pepper etc) and olive oil. I baked them at 350 for 30 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, sautee garlic and bell peppers. Once lightly softened, add spinach and sundried tomatoes. Cook until spinach is wilted. Transfer this mixture into a bowl.

Add 4 oz light cream cheese and 1/2 cup shredded monterray jack cheese. Add in chopped chicken tenders. Top with ~1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese.
