This recipe came out just as the fiber craze was beginning.
recipe from 1979 Kellogg's advertisement
1 cup Kellogg's All-Bran cereal or Kellogg's Brand Buds cereal
1/4 cup chopped nuts
5 tbsp. margarine or butter, melted
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. ground sage
1/8 tsp. ground thyme
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. chopped onion
1 tbsp. chopped pimiento
1 cup cubed cooked chicken
1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
Combine 1/4 cup of cereal, 2 tbsp. of the nuts, 3 tbsp. of the margarine and the remaining ingredients except rolls. Crush remaining cereal to coarse crumbs and mix with remaining nuts.
Separate rolls into 4 squares (2 triangles each), pressing perforations. Place 1/3 cup chicken mixture in center of each. Gather corners together, pinching to seal. Brush with the remaining margarine. Roll in nut mixture. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 350˚ F about 25 minutes or until browned. Serve with white sauce.* Garnish with chives. Makes 4 servings.
Variations: In place of the All Bran cereal, combine 1/2 cup Kellogg's 40% Bran Flakes cereal with chicken mixture and crush 1 cup 40% Bran Flakes to coarse crumbs and use with nuts for coating. Or use 1 cup Kellogg's Cracklin' Bran cereal crushed to coarse crumbs.
* There's a recipe for white sauce at the end of this recipe.
