Chicken Squares

I tried this recipe last night. So easy and so good. I didn't use pimento (not even sure what that is) and substituted parsley flakes for chives and they still turned out tasty. If you like crescent rolls (and who doesn't:)) this will be a winner.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 c cooked chopped or shredded chicken
1/8 tsp pepper
1 TB chives
1 TB chopped pimento (I buy it in a jar-usually found near can veggies I think)
3 TB butter, melted
1/4 tsp. salt
2 TB milk
2 cans Pillsbury crescent rolls
3/4 c. seasoned croutons, crushed
Preheat to 350. In bowl blend cream cheese and about 2 TB melted butter. (save 1 TB for later). Add the chicken, salt, pepper, pimento, chives, & milk. Mix well. Seperate crescent dough into rectangles (by pressing two triangles together in the middle). Spoon mixture in the center of the dough. Pull the four corners of the rectangles up to create a little pouch and seal the edges. Brush with melted butter and dip into croutons crumbs. Bake for 20-25 minutes. (should make 6-8 total)

You crack me up!!!
First off all, thank you for these recipes-we might be trying them out! And secondly, the best way for me to explain pimentos is that they are the little red things you find in the center of a green olive! You buy them in a small jar, they are tasteless but they are a nice garnish!!! :)
Hope the four of you are well, I'm sure you are enjoying every moment of you being at home with your two little blessings!

love and prayers,

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
