Julie's crescent roll chicken & dumplins.....

I combined two recipes to get this delicious version and I made a few adjustments the 2nd time I made these. Feel free to tweak this recipe as much as you like. One word of caution: only put the recommended amount of filling in the dumplins. That is all those crescent roll dumplings can hold. Any more and they will explode! (Yes, I am saying, "dumplins" on purpose. Dumplings just doesn't sound right to me, ya'll! :)

4-5 chicken breasts, boiled and chopped up fine (I cooked mine in crockpot all day with onion & celery and poultry seasoning to make an excellent broth)

1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can cream of chicken soup

1/2 c. broth

1/2 c. milk

4 tbsp. butter, softened

3 cans buttery flaky BIG crescent rolls

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt or just use 1/2 tsp. garlic salt and no powder

black pepper & salt for dumplins.

Preheat oven to 400. Spray 9 X13 baking dish with cooking spray. Mix in med. size bowl, chicken, cream cheese & garlic powder & salt or just garlic salt. In another med. size bowl, mix together soups and broth and milk.

Roll out the cans of croissant sheets and separate into diamond shaped sections. Place a small handful of chicken mixture on each diamond, fold dough over and press ends together to create dumplings. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with one layer of dumplings.Place some softened butter on top of each of the dumplings.Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Pour soup mixture on top of dumplings. Place foil on top of pan now or dumplings will brown too quickly and not be done all the way through. Bake another 15-20 minutes or until the dumplings are tender and cooked through and the top is brown and bubbly .
