{Chicken Pillows}

This is a recipe from my Mother in Law that we just love! These truly are delicious. This recipe makes a lot, so I usually make half and then freeze the other half and cook them another night, so it's a quick meal.

For the dough:
3 Tbs yeast
1 Tbs sugar
3/4 cup warm water
1 qt hot water
1 cube butter
1 Tbs salt
1 cup sugar
6-7 cups flour

In a bowl combine 3 Tbs yeast, 1 Tbs sugar and 3/4 warm water and let the yeast froth for about 5-10 minutes.
In a mixer combine 1 qt hot water with the butter, salt, 1 cup sugar and 2 cups flour. Add the yeast mixture and slowly add in the rest of the flour 1 cup at a time until the dough is easy to work with. (its okay if its a little sticky) Butter a bowl and place the dough in there to rise for about an hour

For the filling:
7 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
2 8oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined.

Once the dough has risen, roll out in to a large rectangle. Use a pizza cutter and cut about 3-4 inch squares and place the chicken mixture into the center of each one and wrap the dough around it and pinch at the bottom.  Place the seam side down on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

For the gravy:

1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk

In a small saucepan combine all the ingredients and warm through. Serve over hot rolls.
