  • 1 package pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 4 oz cooked and shredded chicken
  • 1/3 cup diced peppers I used red & green
  • 1/2 cup corn I used frozen
  • Green onion diced
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1.5 tsp chili powder


  • In a bowl mix together your peppers, salsa, chicken, corn, green onion and chili powder.
  • Roll out your crescent dough into two pieces of 4 crescent rolls, pinch together any seams.
  • Spread your chicken mixture onto your two pieces of dough, roll the dough up and seal any openings.
  • Place rolled dough in the freezer for 30 minutes, this will help when you cut them.
  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a large baking sheet.
  • Use a serrated knife and cut each rolled dough into 8 pieces, I find it best to cut in the middle then cut each half into 4, your end pieces might not look the best and you can even just cut off a very small end piece and discard if you want.
  • Place on baking sheet (I used a spatula to help transfer) and bake for approx 18 minutes, you want the dough a golden brown color.
  • Serve warm, makes 16 pinwheels.

  1. My crescent rolls were much thinner and not as wide as yours. I used a store brand maybe that’s why. It fell apart. And I calculated it as 6 points for 1/4 of the whole thing (crescent rolls were the only thing with points and it was 24 points for the whole package so I did 4 servings).

      Yeah maybe because it was a different brand, I think the pillsbury reduced fat ones are 25 for the whole roll

  2. not sure if I missed this or not, but I don’t know the quantity per points. If this makes sense

      Hi, yeah I think it should work, might bake differently though so you may need to adjust the times
