Chicken Pillows

This recipe first came to me from my friend Sandy. She wanted to make dinner for her then fiance (I believe). This was one of his favorite dishes. She asked me to help her make it and of course I did. There was enough for me and Tagg to have some as well. It was yummy but I didn't keep the recipe. Then at my church we had a little recipe night and this was a recipe submitted by one of the girls. This recipe was a little easier than the one we had made originally, so I stuck with it! I didn't know my husband was such a big fan of it until he requested that we have it and was so excited when he saw it cooking. Go figure! :) Anyway, it's super easy and I often just use a can of chicken from costco.. which makes it even easier!

Chicken Pillows

1 pkg large crescent roll
Chicken (cooked cubed or in pieces or you can use a large can)
1 (8 oz) tub onion & chive cream cheese
1/4 Tbsp. Butter or margarine
1 can cream of chicken soup set aside
Melt cream cheese & butter in microwave. Add chicken. Roll out crescents and combine 2 to make a large rectangle. Add chicken mixture and fold over and pinch to look like a pillow. Bake 350 for 18-20 min Serve with heated cream of chicken soup on top. (I usually thin it down a little with milk so it has more of a gravy texture).
