“This is a variation on the popular, Weight Watchers cult-like recipe, Chicken Baseballs. I am told the basic recipe is 8 points per serving. Paired with a green salad, this makes a fantastic dinner. I tried this variation based on an old, but very high fat recipe that my family loved - This lighter recipe really tastes great, and the kids love it, too!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add cream cheese, margarine, salt, pepper, milk, and poppy seeds in small bowl. Microwave for about 30 seconds and stir.
  3. Pour mixture over cooked, finely cubed chicken and stir.
  4. Divide chicken mixture into 4 portions.
  5. Separate dough into four rectangles, careful to seal perforations. Two triangles will make up each rectangle.
  6. Lay each rectangle over a pinch of the cracker crumbs to keep them from sticking to your work surface, then add 1/4 of the chicken into the middle of each, pull up the corners, then seal the edges to make a "baseball" shape. Then sprinkle a small amount of cracker crumbs over the entire area of the dough, and place seam side down on parchment lined cookie sheet, or an ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
