This ranch chicken pillows recipe is absolutely delicious and one that your whole family will easily love so when the opportunity came to share it with you I knew I had to move on it quickly. But more importantly, the people and story behind this recipe is one that our family is praying will impress on your hearts and that maybe, just maybe you all will be willing to help us with. You see, this recipe really isn’t about the recipe at all. It’s about love and it’s about you. We desperately need your help and hope you will read on.

And fyi, these pillows seriously are so delicious. The tomatoes are something I’ve never added before but freshen up the whole dish. And while Sarah’s recipe doesn’t call for ranch we added it because their sweet little daughter loves it and knowing how much she says she wants a baby because she “loves them soooo much” I thought it wold be a nice little nod to her.

We Need Your Help

We have some pretty fantastic friends in our lives and we are so grateful for each and every one of them. One in particular also happens to be our Bishop and his wife. Cade serves alongside Bishop in our ward and has been able to develop a great love for this man and his family. As we’ve gotten to know them we’ve learned that they love life and each other in a way that many people strive for. Their desire is to not only do good but to be good themselves. They truly desire to be a little better each day and to raise a family in love. I’m sure many of you can relate, we certainly can, but life isn’t always what we dreamed. For Sarah the dream was always to be a mother. This has proven a hard and heartbreaking journey for this family as they’ve struggled to bring little ones into this world. And now, after years of hoping without results they have decided to  put courage into their hearts and seek out adoption. And in the process we’ve learned that adoption actually often comes from you and I.

Adoption often comes through word of mouth and this sweet family needs your help. Please repin, you never know who might see it. ohsweetbasil.com

That’s not something I expected to learn. I thought people in need of placing went online, scrolled through photos and selected someone. Which if you think about it that’s kind of crazy to think of the pressure and emotions that must come with choosing a family to raise your unborn child. But, because we could not think of anyone better in the world to be parents we knew we had to help. Often adoption comes through word of mouth. I put this post up, one of you mentions it to someone who later learns that a neighbor, student or even their own child needs to place a baby for adoption, the word gets spread and the connections are made to help a family come together. That’s why we need your help.

Would you be willing to help spread the word? You can share their image, this post or recipe on social media or even start telling people by word of mouth that someone is looking to adopt. And maybe even leave them some love and encouragement in the comments or email them directly. I know personally how it feels to ache for a child in your life as does Cade. Yes, the men feel it just as much as the women do. We know we are in a position to help put their names out there to so many people and we pray that you will help us. You never know who could possibly see your post on facebook or instagram and just so happen to know someone or later hear of someone. So, with all of the pleading in the world we ask that we all join together to help this sweet, deserving family. And don’t worry, we will be sharing more of Sarah’s amazingly delicious recipes so you can get to know them better. And at the bottom of the post you’ll find their photos and links to help you tell others.

  • Since there is just two of us, was wondering how these hold up when reheating? Recipe sounds amazingly delicious. Can’t wait to make it.

    Thanks, Janet

    • Hi Janet! They hold up great, but the croissant loses it’s crunch on the outside if you warm them up in the microwave. If you warm them up in the oven, they will be just as good as the first time. Enjoy!

  • We don’t have crescent rolls here in Singapore. What can I use as an alternative. Like pastry puff or?

    • Reply
    • Hi Arielle,
      You could use puff pastry, or even regular roll dough.

  • Is there a way to make this without the cream cheese? My family doesn’t like the taste of it and most of the time it overpowers a recipe

    • Hmmm, it’s the binder for everything but you could always just skip it entirely. 🙂
