Cream Cheese Chicken

I don't know about the average person but when I have to prepare dinner I look for what I have in the house and hope something inspires me.  I usually don't have a dinner plan set up for the week.  Tonight I had baked chicken breast left over from last nights dinner and a container of cream cheese.  I also had several tubes of crescent rolls.  From there, I searched www.cooks.com (which is one of my favorite sites) for chicken, cream cheese & crescent rolls.  Here is the recipe that I found and I thought my family would like it.  I did pretty well (especially since my  kids are super picky).  I had a 4 out of 5 vote for yummy!

3 oz. cream cheese (but you could put up to 8 oz. if you want - that is a whole pkg.)
4 tbsp. butter, melted
2 c. cubed chicken
1/4 tsp. pepper
dash of salt
dash of garlic powder
4 tbsp. milk
2 tbsp. onion (I used dried onion from my spice cabinet)
8 oz. crescent rolls
1/4 c. parmesan cheese or bread crumbs or stuffing mix (I did a combo of parmesan cheese & italian breadcrumbs)

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

In medium bowl, blend cream cheese & 3 tbsp. butter until smooth.  Add the rest of the ingredients except rolls & parmesan cheese.  Mix well.  Seperate crescent dough & use 2 triangles to make a rectangle.  Place 1/4-1/2 c. chicken mixture in center of rectangle.  Fold over and pinch seam shut.  Brush tops with extra butter & sprinkle parmesan cheese or bread crumbs on top.  Bake 20 min. or until golden brown.
