“Another Once a month meal that's sure to please. My little girl likes these because they pick up easily in her hands! *I revised this recipe based on several folks pointing out that I had made a mistake on the amount of cream cheese. Thank you so much for the input!”
8 packets

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 (6 -8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • salt
  • 12 cup seasoned croutons, crushed to crumbs
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 14 cup melted margarine


  1. Mix chicken, cream cheese, chives, milk, and salt in a medium bowl (mixing with hands works best) to make filling, and store in a 1 qt freezer bag.
  2. Put crouton crumbs in another 1 qt bag, attach it to bag of chicken filling, and freeze.
  3. Refrigerate crescent rolls.
  4. To prepare for serving, thaw chicken mixture.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  6. Unroll crescent rolls.
  7. Each tube will contain 4 rectangles of dough with a diagonal perforation.
  8. Press dough along each perforation so the rectangle halves will not separate.
  9. Place about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture into the center of each rectangle.
  10. Fold dough over the filling, and pinch the edges to seal tightly.
  11. Dip each packet in melted margarine, and coat with crouton crumbs.
  12. Place packets on a baking sheet.
  13. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  14. Packets are good either hot or cold.
