Lunch with friends

On Friday, I had lunch with two wonderful people. There just is NEVER enough time to cover all the bases, especially when the food is incredible.

Abi made us lunch and how she did it with an incredibly active two year old, Noah, well it's just nothing short of amazing.

She served perfectly warmed Chicken Squares. I asked for the recipe and she kindly shared. Oh, these are SO perfect.

Chicken Salad Squares

1 package of puff pastry dough or 1 tube of crescent rolls

2 cups cooked chicken
½ cup of diced celery
4 oz. of cream cheese [I use light or low-fat cream cheese]
2 tablespoons of melted butter
2 tablespoons of milk [I use skim milk]
1 teaspoon salt

Optional additions:
½ cup almonds
½ cup of dried cherries
½ cup of diced apple

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Blend filling ingredients and include any optional additions to the filling. Separate pastry dough into 4 inch squares (a tube of crescent rolls yields 4 squares). Place the squares on an ungreased baking sheet. Spoon approximately ½ cup of the filling onto the dough, and then pull the corners of the square up to one another so that the filling is encased by dough.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until the dough is golden brown.
