Chicken Packets


4 cups Chicken, skinless light meat – cooked, chopped

6 ounces Lowfat Cream Cheese – softened

2 tablespoons Chives – chopped

4 tablespoons Milk, skim

1 cup Croutons, seasoned – crushed

4 packages Refrigerated Biscuits – crescent roll dough

1/2 cup Butter or Margarine – melted

Salt – to taste

Mix chicken, cream cheese, chives, milk, and salt in a large bowl with your hands to make filling, and store in 2 - one quart sized bags until you are ready to use them. Put crouton crumbs in another 2 - one quart bags, attach them to the bags of filling, label and freeze (unless you wish to make these right away).

To serve: Thaw chicken mixture or use freshly made mixture. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll crescent rolls. Each tube will contain 4 rectangles of dough with a diagonal perforation. Press dough along each perforation so the halves will not separate. Place about 1/4 cup of mixture in center of each rectangle. Fold dough over filling, and pinch the edges to seal tightly. Dip each packet in melted margarine, and coat with crouton crumbs. Place packets on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
