Chicken Crescents

I remember having these growing up but never really liked them;)  It's funny how our tastes change as we get older because these are so good and filling.  My kids really liked them and Ellie told me I needed to give the recipe to Grandma so she could make them the next night at her house when they went to spend the night!!  I found this version of the recipe from a friend but my mom's recipe calls for a can of mushrooms (husband doesn't like) and she uses a different sauce but I like this one better!:)  ENJOY!!

Chicken Crescents:

3 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 Tbsp. melted butter
1 Tbsp. milk
2 cups cooked shredded chicken (I used the chicken I cook in the crock pot with Italian dressing - mmm)
1/2 small onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2-8 oz. cans crescent dinner rolls
melt butter to brush on top
1 cup crushed seasoned bread crumbs

Blend cream cheese, butter and milk in a medium bowl until smooth. Add remaining ingredients, except rolls and bread crumbs. Mix well. Open crescent rolls and separate into squares instead of triangles. Place 1/4 cup of meat mixture and seal any opening. Dip in melted butter, then dip tn crushed bread crumbs. Place on cookies sheet crumbs on top. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until done.

Sauce: Mix and heat 1 can cream of chicken to 1/2 can milk.
