Blog Fest 2010 Giveaway Update & Recipe Saturday on Monday -Spicy Cashew-Chicken Bundles

Hello My Darlings,

First I just want to say, I am awed and amazed at the number of entries I received for my Blog Fest giveaway. I can honestly say it was a success, and I am so happy to have been a part of it. Now.. With that being said, I will not be posting and notifying my winners until Wednesday September 15th. I had over 400 entries, and I have to go through each comment and categorize them by US, Canadian, and International. Then I will let randomizer choose 1 winner from each category. That is going to take a while, so please bare with me, and be looking for my winners post Wednesday. Thanks to all my followers old and new for participating, It was a lot of FUN!

Recipe Saturday On Monday

I didn't do my recipe Saturday post, because I wanted to have my Blog Fest 2010 post readily available for everyone when they visited my page. So... I'm posting it today. This weeks recipe is... Spicy Cashew-Chicken Bundles. I made these this weekend for a event that I catered, and I was very happy with how they turned out. I received several compliments on them, so I wanted to share this recipe with you.

Spicy Cashew- Chicken Bundles

Prep time: 20 Min
Total time: 40 Min
     Makes: 4 sandwiches


1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken

1/4 cup finely shredded carrot

3 tablespoons sliced green onions (3 medium)

3 tablespoons chopped cashews

1/2 teaspoon grated gingerroot or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup hoisin sauce

1can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet

Additional sliced green onions, if desired.


 1. Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, mix all ingredients except dough and additional sliced green onions; set aside.

2. If using crescent rolls: On ungreased large cookie sheet, unroll dough; separate into 4 rectangles. Press each into 7x4 1/2-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: On ungreased large cookie sheet, unroll dough; cut into 4 rectangles. Press each into 7x4 1/2-inch rectangle.

3. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto one end of each rectangle. Fold dough in half over filling; firmly press edges with fork to seal. With fork, prick top of each to allow steam to escape.

4. Bake 13 to 18 minutes or until deep golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Garnish with additional sliced green onions. Serve warm.

This recipe can be doubled to feed 8, or tripled to feed 12, and so on. I served 40 at my event :))
