Crescent Chicken Squares

(22 Votes)
20 Min

There's an irresistible, creamy chicken filling waiting inside each of these Crescent Chicken Squares, but that's not all that makes these so good! A crunchy topping made from a surprising ingredient really takes 'em over the top! 

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 2 cups chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red bell pepper (optional)
  • 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3/4 cup seasoned croutons, crushed
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and 2 tablespoons butter; stir in chicken, milk, and red pepper, if desired. Set aside.
  3. Unroll crescent dough, separating into 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. Spoon 1/4 of the chicken mixture into the center of each rectangle; bring corners of each rectangle together over chicken mixture, and twist gently to seal.
  4. Place crushed croutons in a shallow dish. Brush chicken packets with remaining butter, dredge in croutons, and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden.

Serve these up with a side of veggies. We're thinking some Classic Creamed Spinach would be nice!

This has been a favorite of ours for many years, a great one for company. They think you worked hard because it is so tasty. I really enjoy your variety of recipes, always looking for something new you go above and beyond!!

Our daughter made these for a 4H foods review when she was in high school and got a blue ribbon. Have shared the recipe many times. We LOVE it.

Mmm...yummie! Try it.

I have made this dish and served it with a crisp salad. Will make it again. Really enjoyed it.

This is a great tasting easy recipe that I have been making for many years!

The filling in this recipe is great but we didn't enjoy the crescent rolls so the next time we made it we used puff pastry and that made it really tasty!

I make this with crab, we love it. Quick and easy.

I've been making this since the 70's. Very easy but looks special. Great for women's luncheons. The original recipe in the pillsbury back off book called for boiled chicken, no peppers and a mushroom gravy made from canned soup. I add baby peas to the gravy. I just love this dish.

Quick, easy, and tasty. I'll make it again. It's a recipe that lends itself to many variations.

This can also be done with tuna fish.

I was wondering if you can use chicken that has been boiled and shredded or canned chicken breasts? Thank You.

Both boiled chicken and shredded or canned chicken would work for this recipe. Enjoy!

A rotisserie chicken is a whole chicken that can be bought in the deli section at Tops or Wegmans. It is already cooked by slow rotisserie (baked on a scewer slowly). Just ask at the deli and they will direct you. It is a delicious chicken and can be used on its own as a meal with mashed potatoes, gravy and veggie, or cut up and used for many recipes, soups, etc. It is very reasonable costwise too. Good luck!

What is "rotisserie chicken"?

That is the whole chicken you can buy at Tops, or Wegmans, in the deli section, it is already cooked by slow cooking rotisserie. They have them fresh every day. If you are still unsure, just ask and they'll tell you. It's a whole chicken, so you'll have to cut it up, but, it's already cooked. So good, even to use with other dinners, or just with mashed potatoes and gravy and veggie.

We love just about anything creamy......cream cheese or heavy cream and this one is so simple and quick with just the right amount of it!!!!!!

it's easy and good

This has been a family favorite for my family for years. For my daughter who is a vegetarian i use frozen broccoli & cauliflower (partially cooked) in place of the chicken. These veggies are also great added to the chicken recipe. I always make extra as they freeze well.

I've been using the un-perferated crescent dough. It would be great for this recipe!

Throw in a cup of peas and carrots, top with solid layer of crescent roll dough and bake.... delicious.

This sounds great, but I'm going to try it with my pizza dough recipe. I'll let you know how it turns out.

What is you pizza dough recipe?
