Savory Crescent Chicken Squares

So I haven't posted a recipe in a really long time...but here is an oldy but goody! (I may have shared this with some of you years ago - I remember making this while living in Birmingham!)

Savory Crescent Chicken Squares

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 TBSP butter, softened
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 TBSP chopped chives or green onion
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 TBSP milk
1 8oz pkg refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 TBSP butter, melted
3/4 cup seasoned croutons, crushed

Heat oven to 350.
In medium bowl, combine cream cheese and 1 TBSP softened butter. Stir until smooth. Add chicken, chives, salt, pepper, and milk. Mix well.

Separate dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Spoon 1/4 of chicken mixture onto center of each rectangle. Pull 4 corners of dough to center of chicken mixture and twist. Pinch edges to seal. (this makes 4 squares with the dough sealed into the center). Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Brush tops of sandwiches with melted butter. Sprinkle with crushed croutons.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

*I use part of a rotisserie chicken. And I normally mix the filling up during naps and then just stuff the dough right before cooking it. The kids love this!*


  1. I LOVE this recipe. It's perfect for ladies luncheon even though the time we had it, you made it for Justin too!
