Chicken Squares

Throughout our marriage I have really tried to make something different for dinner most nights.  For the first four months I stuck to this, but since then I've slipped up and made a few dinners on more than one occasion.  This recipe is one of those ones that I keep going back to.  I've been eating these chicken squares since I was little, and I love them.  The recipe is originally from a family friend, and these are so easy to make!  And they look quite cute all bundled up; for company it makes a much better presentation than just a casserole or something.

Chicken Squares
2 cups cubed chicken, already cooked
3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp melted butter
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp chopped pimiento (found in the canned vegetable aisle)
8 oz tube of crescent rolls

Blend cream cheese and margarine.  Add salt, pepper, milk, and pimiento; mix well.  Add chicken and stir to combine.  Separate crescent rolls into four rectangles onto ungreased baking sheet.  Pinch the seams together.  Spoon 1/4 of the mixture onto the center of each rectangle.  Pull the four corners of each rectangle to the center and seal with your fingers, creating a little bundle with the chicken mixture inside.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until crescents are golden brown.


  1. Oh my goodness, these look so delicious! The crescent roll is what sold me. I can see why you keep coming back to it, haha.

  4. Yum...these look hearty and delish! I get stuck in cooking ruts too {making the same things} but, hey, when you find a good recipe, you make it (over and over and over again)...why mess with perfection?!?!?

    Happy weekend!
