Chicken Croissants

This is a CLASSIC family recipe! My mom used to make it all the time for special occasions around our house growing up. The greatest thing about it is that it requires so few ingredients but is also very versatile! You can add pretty much whatever you want to the chicken mixture and it will still be awesome! The recipe I have listed below is not my mom's recipe, but it is one that Jake and I really enjoy. Try it! It is very tasty!

CHICKEN ROLL-UPS (aka CHICKEN CROISSANTS)

Mix together:
1 lb. cooked chicken breast (chopped)
2 c broccoli, finely chopped (optional)
8 oz. cream cheese at room temperature

1 cube butter, melted
1 c bread crumbs
1 pkg. Of big crescent rolls

Open crescent rolls and place a spoonful of chicken mixture into the center of the roll. Fold all corners together to form an oval shape enclosing the filling. Dip the folded crescent roll into the melted butter first, and then the bread crumbs, coating the entire crescent. Place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with seasoned salt if you want. Preheat oven to 350ยบ and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

I love this recipe (and your blog!), but I think you missed a step. When do you put on the coating? Do you microwave the butter so it is melted? I know, stupid questions. ;)

Thanks!

I have made a similar recipe and my family absolutely loved it. This looks like a yummy variation!
