Crescent Chicken Bundles

This is another of my OAMC (once a month cooking) recipes. The recipe is doubled so you make one for now and freeze one for later. As stated earlier, I have tried all of these recipes and they are all great! I've also made them all for a great friend when she had her last child so she could stock her freezer for some speedy meals for when she brought home her newborn son.

2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
2 tablespoons minced chives
2 tablespoons whole milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup crushed seasoned

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter, chives, milk, salt and pepper until blended. Stir in chicken.
Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into eight rectangles; press perforations together. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture in the center of each rectangle. Bring edges up to the center and pinch to seal. Brush with remaining butter. Sprinkle with crushed croutons, lightly pressing down.
Transfer to two ungreased baking sheets. Cover one baking sheet and freeze until firm; transfer squares to a covered freezer container. May be frozen for up to 2 months. Bake remaining squares at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

To use frozen squares: Thaw in the refrigerator and bake as directed. Yield: 8 servings.
