Chicken Squares



I made this recipe on a recommendation from Stacy. Go here for her rundown of it. I ended up making four and a half squares. I gave the little one to Scamp.

Recipe:
3 oz. cream cheese -- softened
2 tablespoons butter or marg. -- softened
1 cup diced cooked boneless chicken (or 2 -5 oz cans)
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon minced onion (dry is fine)
1 8 oz can crescent roll dough
3/4 cup crushed croutons
Directions
Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Blend cream cheese & butter until smooth. Add chicken, milk, salt, pepper & onion.

Separate crescent rolls & press 2 together at the perforation to seal. Spoon 1/2 cup mixture onto each rectangle. Pull 4 corners of dough together, twist slightly & seal edges. Brush tops with melted butter & sprinkle with crushed croutons (if I'm out of croutons, I mix some fresh bread crumbs with garlic bread seasoning).

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 20-25 minutes.

I used fat free cream cheese, canned chicken, dried onion, and reduced fat crescent rolls. I only added about half the onion it called for. I really liked the recipe. Beef did, too, but said next time not to use so much onion. I didn't get any complaints from Scamp. I cut hers up into little pieces so that she could pick it up.

Ooh, cool, I'm glad you had a chance to try it! I need to go look and see if that was supposed to be one teaspoon rather than one tablespoon of dried onion. You could probably use regular onion too, but I usually use dry since I always have it. These are good to have with soup or a salad, but your side dishes look a lot better!

I also have 2 other recipes that are similar to this. One in an oriental type bun like this, that we really like. It uses hoisin and oyster sauce, so it might not be something Scamp would like. Glad she would eat hers! :) Always good to hear!

Have a great day, and thanks again for trying it!

Isn't that recipe great? I've been making them for years now but we call them Chicken Crescents.
