3 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 tbls fresh chives, chopped
2 tbls milk
Salt, to taste
Seasoned croutons, crushed
2 packages crescent rolls

Cook and shred 2 chicken breasts to make 2 cups. Mix chicken, cream cheese, chives, milk, and salt in medium sized bowl. Unroll crescent rolls and split into 4 rectangular pieces per can, pushing triangular seams together. Scoop approximately 1/4 cup of chicken mixture onto dough on one end leaving room along the edges for sealing. Fold over other side of dough and press to close. Brush each packet with melted butter and sprinkle with crushed croutons to coat as desired. Bake, at 350, for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot or cold. Makes 8 packets.
