CLEVELAND, Ohio - Fox 8 Jessica Dill recently got a cooking lesson from her mom and aunt and she was excited to share the Dill Family recipe with all of us.
Aunt Jeanne's Crescent Chicken Squares

The original amount is listed but my family doubles or triples it all to make more!

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet

Boil chicken and cut up into little square pieces.
In medium bowl, mix cream cheese softened butter; beat until smooth.
