Margo's Chicken Squares

My friend, Margo, introduced me to these. They're fab. The original recipe calls for using those crescent rolls that come in a can in the refrigerated section, but I prefer pastry crust, so I've adapted it a little to fit what I like.

Margo's Chicken Squares

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
5 Tbsp melted butter
3 cups cooked chicken, cut up
1 tsp. Krazy Mixed-Up Salt
2 green onions, chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp chopped pimentos
2 pkg. croissant rolls, OR pie crust dough, enough for two crusts
3/4 cups seasoned croutons, crushed

Mix all ingredients except rolls and croutons. Roll out two crescent rolls together to make a rectangle. Pinch seams together and roll into a 6 inch square. (If you're using pie crust dough, just cut six inch squares into rolled-out dough.) Put 1/8 of chicken mixture into center. Fold up and seal. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Brush with additional melted butter and sprinkle with croutons. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins for the crescent dough, 375 degrees for 45 minutes for pie crust dough.
