Chicken Packets

I've gotten sick of our regular recipe list so went poking around for new recipes--can you tell? :)  This is specifically for prepping then quickly throwing things together during the month.

Preheat: 350*
Category: Chicken, freezeable

2 c. Chicken, chopped and cooked
1 (6-8 oz.) pkg. Cream cheese, softened
1 T. Chives, chopped
2 T. Milk
1/2 c. Seasoned croutons, crushed to crumbs (I plan on using bread crumbs.)
2 (8-oz.) pkgs. Refrigerated Crescent rolls (I plan on using my recipe for Calzone dough so I don't have to buy the refrigerated rolls.)
1/4 c. Butter, melted

1.  Mix (warm is best) Chicken, cream cheese, chives, milk and salt with hands.  If you're pre-making this part, store in a 1-quart freezer bag.

2.  Put crouton crumbs in another 1-quart bag, attaching it to the first.  Freeze the two bags for future use.

3.  Refrigerate Crescent rolls.

4.  Preheat oven and undo rolls to a rectangle shape.

5.  Place about 1/4 c. of chicken mixture into center of each rectangle.

6.  Fold dough over, pinching shut.

7.  Dip each packet in melted butter and coat with crumbs.

8.  Bake at 350* for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
