Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter softened
2 c. Shredded Chicken (see below)
1 egg (optional)

1/4 c. Bell Pepper Chopped and diced

How to make Chicken Cream Cheese Croissants

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Place the cream cheese and butter in a bowl. Mix well until blended. Then, add the shredded chicken along with the diced green onions, diced green bell pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well until everything is incorporated.

Step 3: Unroll one tube of Croissants on a cutting board. Pinch the cut lines using your fingers, making 4 rectangles out of the 8 croissants.

Step 4: In the middle of the croissant, place 1/4 cup of the mixture, bringing the corners together and pinching to close.

Step 5: Beat the egg in another bowl. Over each croissant, brush the egg (optional). Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 13 to 15 minutes or until the croissants are golden brown.

To make the Shredded Chicken:

Step 1: In the bottom of your Instant Pot or Pressure cooker, pour 1 cup of water or chicken broth. Add 2 chicken breasts on a trivet in your Instant Pot and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and crushed garlic.

Step 2: Put the lid on and seal the valve. Set to cook for 18 minutes on Manual (Presser Cook) High. When the time is up, let a 20 minutes Natural Release.

Step 3: Take the chicken out of the Instant Pot and shred them one by one using two forks.
