2SP blue, green & purple, 2PP


  • 1 package pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup light cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/4 cup light shredded cheese (such as WW brand or similar, I use a 3 cheese blend)
  • 1 Tbsp light ranch dressing
  • 2 Tbsp franks hot sauce
  • 4 oz about 1 cup shredded cooked chicken


  • In a bowl mix your softened cream cheese, shredded cheese, ranch and hot sauce.
  • Open your dough and lay out into 2 pieces (4 crescent rolls each) pinch together any open seams.
  • Divide your cheese mixture in two and spread onto your dough.
  • Sprinkle your grated chicken on top (I like to cook my chicken breast in the crock pot, little broth on high about 4 hours and it shreds nicely, I do a batch up each week to keep in the fridge for meals and such)
  • Carefully roll up each piece and seal any open seams, Place in freezer for about 10 minutes, this will help firm them up.
  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a large cookie sheet.
  • Using a serrated knife carefully cut each roll into 8 pieces, I usually cut of the small ends and then make my 8 cuts.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake in oven for approx 16 minutes, checking they don't burn, you want them a nice golden brown, check around them that the dough has cooked through.
  • Makes 16 pinwheels at 2 SP each on all 3 MyWW programs

    Made these last night for two hungry boys and myself and we LOVED them! The only thing I did differently was mixing the chicken in with the cream cheese mixture. Quick, easy, and delicious. My fiance said, “This needs to go in our regular rotation!”

      I serve them warm because I like warm food, but they can be eaten cold
