Crescent Chicken Rolls

This week my husband had a birthday.

The following three posts are what he requests every year for his birthday and Father's Day.

I got this recipe from my mom and it is one of my very favorites too.

Crescent Chicken Rolls
(printable version)

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup mushrooms (I use 1 small can)
2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
salt and pepper to taste
2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 box seasoned stuffing mix, crushed (It is easiest to buy the one step stuffing with the seasonings already mixed in then put it in a ziploc bag and crush it with your rolling pin)
2 cups chicken gravy

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream cheese and butter together. Add pecans, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Add chicken. Place one heaping tablespoon mixture in each roll. Roll up and seal edges. Brush roll in melted butter and roll in stuffing crumbs. Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes, watch them carefully, sometimes the bottoms brown fast. Be sure to check them after 15 minutes. Top with chicken gravy.
