Savory Crescent Chicken Squares

Posted by Lori:

My sister-in-law, Robin shared this recipe with me so that I could share it with you. It sounds really good and I look forward to making it soon.

Robin got this recipe from the Pillsbury website in 1999.

Savory Crescent Chicken Squares

1 3 oz. pkg cream cheese
1 T. butter
2 c. cubed, cooked chicken
1 T. chopped chives or onion
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
2 T. milk
1 T. chopped pimento, if desired
1 8 oz. can Crescent dinner rolls

1 T. melted butter
3/4 c. seasoned croutons, crushed

Beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add Chicken, chives, salt, pepper, milk and pimento; mix well. Seperate crescent dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto center of each rectangle. Pull 4 corners of dough together and twist. Pinch edges to seal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops of squares with melted butter and sprinkle with crushed croutons. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Makes 4 servings.

Robin's best tip to make these tastier is to substitute Italian dressing in place of the milk! When she hosts Bunko her friends always expect her to make these and she gets in trouble if she does something else!!!

Thanks, Robin!

I put some of my spinach/artichoke dip in them the other day with a little chicken mixed in. So I suppose there's lots of variations you could make for the filling
