It is easy to make so it is a good go-to dish but it looks fancy so you could serve it at a dinner party too!  Try this...Please!  You won't regret it!!!

1 (8 oz) can crescent rolls
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 c. butter
2-3 c. cooked and shredded chicken
1 egg
1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup milk
2 spoonfuls sour cream 
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese


-  Preheat oven to 400 degrees
-  Soften 1/4 cup butter and 8oz. block of cream cheese and stir to a smooth consistency.
-  Stir in cooked shredded chicken to the butetr and cream cheese mixture.
-  Lay out the 8 crescents on a cookie sheet. Stretch the crescent out a little bit.
-  Place a couple spoon fulls of the chicken mixture into the center of the crescent to fill it. Then fold the crescent around the mixture so that none of it is showing making a "pillow".
-  In a separate bowl, beat the egg and a couple Tablespoons of water together.
-  Dip the "pillow" into the blended egg and then dip it in the crushed crackers and place on cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining 7 crescents.
-  Cook the pillows at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Keep an eye on them your oven might cook them quicker.
-  For the sauce topping: Put can of cream of chicken and milk into a sauce pan. Add as much milk as you want to get it to the consistency you want i.e. thicker or runnier. When hot enough add 2 spoon fulls of sour cream and cheese to your liking.
