Chicken Croissant Squares

This recipe is something I grew up with and a favorite. It is great straight out of the oven, or eaten cold as a leftover. I don't have a photo, but trust me. They are great. If you like lima beans (my husband does not), that's what I grew up having served with them.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 20-25 minutes.

3 oz. softened cream cheese
2 tab. melted butter
2 c. cubed cooked chicken (or 10 oz. can)
2 tab. milk
1/4 tsp. salt 
1/8-1/4 tsp. pepper
optional: onions, chives, or pimentos
roll of crescent rolls

Blend softened cream cheese with butter until smooth. Add chicken, salt, pepper, milk and optional ingredients if desired. Mix well.

Separate crescent rools into 4 rectangles. Seal perforations and gently stretch to form 4 squares. Spoon 1/4 of mixture in each square. Bring cornets to center and seal.

Optional: brush tops with melted butter sprinkled with garlic powder. I recommend it.
