Chicken (or turkey) croissant sandwiches

Need to use up your Thanksgiving turkey? I have a great recipe for you. (And all the other ingredients are usually on sale right now too.)

These are my kids' favorite food! They love them for dinner and then straight out of the fridge for breakfast the next day!

2 cups cooked chicken or turkey, cut into bite-size pieces
8 oz cream cheese, softened. (Low fat or fat free work great)
1 box chicken or turkey stuffing mix- dry!
2 pkgs refrigerator crescent rolls. (Low fat works fine here, too.)
1 stick margarine- melted in a shallow bowl.

Reserve about 1 1/4 cup of the dry stuffing mix in a shallow dish. Set aside for later.

Combine the chicken, cream cheese and dry stuffing mix in a medium sized bowl. Next, evenly divide this mixture into 16 parts. I use my medium cookie scoop, but a tablespoon works fine. Unroll your crescent rolls. Put a scoop inside each roll and roll it up. Dip each closed roll into your melted margarine and then roll it in the stuffing you set aside. Place on a cookie sheet and back according to the directions on the roll package.

(If my directions don't make sense, let me know.)

These are great as-is, or with left over gravy or some cream of chicken soup as a dip.
