Chicken Pillows

3-4 cups chicken, cooked & cubed
6oz. cream cheese, softened
2-4 Tbl. green onion, diced
1/3 cup chopped mushrooms (optional, I didn't put these in mine)
2 Tbl. butter, softened
1/4 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
2 cans crescent roll dough (or Pillsbury's new crescent creations)
Italian bread crumbs
1 stick melted butter

1. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, green onion, (mushrooms), 2 Tbl. butter, milk, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
2. Open crescent rolls and carefully unroll dough. Separate each tube into 4 rectangles. Seal center seams if using actual crescents. Place a heaping scoop of chicken mixture onto one side of rectangle and fold other half over sealing edges and creating a "pillow".
3. Dip each pillow in melted butter, then in bread crumbs.
4. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crescent is cooked through. Serve with cream sauce.

Cream Sauce:
1 can cream of chicken
1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp. curry powder
1 Tbl. mayo
milk, to thicken

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat until thickened and heated through.
