Fancy Crescent Chicken

Another recipe from Gooseberry Patch's "101 Hearty Recipes Cookbook"

FANCY CRESCENT CHICKEN


3-oz pkg cream cheese, softened
3 T butter, softened
10-oz can chicken, drained
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 T milk
1 T fresh chives, chopped
1 T onion, chopped
1 T chopped pimentos
2 8-oz tubes refrigerator crescent rolls
2 T butter, melted
3/4 cup seasoned croutons, crushed


  • In a bowl, mix together cream cheese and softened butter until smooth. Mix in chicken, salt, pepper, milk, chives, onion and pimentos. 
  • Separate crescent rolls into rectangles. Spoon chicken mixture over each rectangle. Fold dough over and press together to seal edges. [I made them in the individual triagles to get "more" out of it...it worked well too!]
  • Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with croutons. 
  • Arrange on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden. 
  • Serves 8.
I brought these to a brunch with some ladies and they absolutely amazed me. The crouton on top just made the whole thing. These are perfect for just that--brunch with some lovely friends. These are going to be a permanent  recipe in my cookbook! Must try!!
