Prep Time



Total Time






box (10 oz) Green Giant® frozen broccoli & cheese sauce
can (10.2 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers refrigerated original or buttermilk biscuits
cup diced cooked chicken
pretzel twists (not mini)
teaspoon yellow mustard
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Cook broccoli & cheese sauce as directed on box. Pour into medium bowl; cut up large pieces of broccoli. Stir in chicken.
  3. Separate dough into 5 biscuits. Press or roll each to form 5 1/2-inch round. Spoon about 1/3 cup broccoli mixture onto center of each round; fold dough over filling, pinching edge and ends of dough well to seal. Place rolls on cookie sheet, seam side down. Place 1 pretzel on cookie sheet under each side of dough rolls for wings. Break pretzels to make antennae; press under top of each roll.
  4. Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Use mustard to make eyes and smiles on each butterfly.
