A long time family favorite of ours is the Chicken Pillows. The original recipe calls for a creamy, cheesy chicken filling inside refrigerated crescent rolls, rolled in melted butter, then rolled in crushed ritz crackers. It is quite delicious. Unfortunately, the refrigerated crescent rolls (even the reduced fat ones) have 1.5 grams of trans-fats per roll, and between 4-6 grams saturated fat.
Our meal made healthier consisted of defattening the creamy chicken filling with greek yogurt and low fat cream cheese. Using a can of refrigerator biscuits (with no trans fats) instead of the crescent rolls. Brushing the tops with an egg white wash. And sprinkling bread crumbs on top. The kids loved this healthier version of dinner. Won’t mention the pea salad. Not so much of a hit for them.

Don’t worry about what others think of you. Worry about what they think of themselves when they are with you.
