Chicken Croissants

Chicken Croissants

1 can crescent rolls

2 cups cubed chicken, cooked

4 oz cream cheese

1 Tbs butter or margarine

3 Tbs milk

_ Mix cream cheese, butter, and milk together. Add cubed chicken.

_ Place ½ cup (or less) of mixed chicken in center of two rolls. Fold diagonally (bring four corners together).

_ Pour melted butter on top. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.

_ Bake @ 350°F for 20-25 minutes (or until golden brown on top)

_ Serves about 4

This is a great meal that looks and tastes fancy but is fast and easy to put together (my roommates always made me make this for them when they were trying to impress a date-pretending they could cook :)

It's a great use of left over chicken...

I use crushed croutons on the top instead of bread crumbs to add a bit more flavor.

You can add any herbs or spices to the mix too - dill, garlic... go wild!

I love these. We serve them with some cream of chicken soup on top or to dip them in. I try not to make these very often but sometimes you just have to.

This is our absolute favorite recipe! We have it all the time. There are a few things that are different though. We add green onions to the chicken mix and instead of bread crumbs we roll the rolls in (uncooked)stovetop. Chicken gravy on top is really good too.
