I discovered this Pillsbury recipe quite some time ago, and it has become one of our favorites. It's a very simple recipe, and makes for a great weeknight meal :) It really reminds me of the "chicken bake" you can get at Costco. Though I've never tried it, I think these would be fabulous with some bacon crumbles added to the mix. It really is a great base recipe, and you can modify it to suit your tastes, like I did.
Savory Crescent Chicken Squares
from Doris Castle on Pillsbury.com
1 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
2 cups cubed cooked chicken (this is 2-3 chicken breasts, depending on the size)
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives or onion (I often omit this, as we rarely have any on hand)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tbsp milk
1 tbsp chopped pimientos, if desired (I omit this, but add 1/2 tsp Sambal Oelek chili paste since we like everything spicy!)
2 tbsp ranch dressing
1 (8 oz) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
1 tbsp butter or margarine, melted (I only use 1/2 tbsp)
3/4 cup seasoned croutons, crushed (I sprinkle with Johnny's Great Caesar Garlic Spread and Seasoning instead)
Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, combine cream cheese and 1 tablespoon softened margarine; beat until smooth. Add chicken, chives, salt, pepper, milk and pimientos; mix well.
Separate dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto center of each rectangle. Pull 4 corners of dough to center of chicken mixture; twist firmly. Pinch edges to seal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops of sandwiches with 1 tablespoon melted margarine; sprinkle with crushed croutons.
Bake at 350°F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
