Chicken Crescent Squares – great weeknight dinner! Everyone cleaned their plate!! Even our picky eaters! AMAZING! Cream cheese, chicken, butter, milk, crescent rolls and croutons. We make these at least twice and month and always double the recipe! SO good! #chicken #chickenrecipe #kidfriendly #easydinnerrecipe
This is another easy weeknight meal courtesy my favorite cookbook, Southern Living Homestyle Cooking. This recipe been on my list to make for years. I finally got around to making this last week. I wish I had made them sooner – they were great!
I used some rotisserie chicken and this came together in no time. We both loved these little chicken bundles – especially the croutons on top. They reminded us of my Chicken Roll Ups, but without the sauce on top. These are going into our regular weeknight dinner rotation.
