Chicken Puff Pastries

From 52 Weeks of Recipes for Picky Kids by Jill McKenzie
Serves 6-8

2 8-oz cans chicken
1/2 cup butter softened (I think I even use less than this)
1 8-oz package cream cheese
2 8-oz cans crescent rolls
2 .87-oz. packets chicken gravy mix
2 14-oz. cans chicken broth
1 teas. dried basil
1 teas. dried oregano
1 teas. poultry seasoning
1 teas. butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix chicken, softened butter, and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Open the cans of crescent rolls and lay out the dough. Put a tablespoon of filling inside each roll and form into crescent shapes. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 13-15 minutes.
For GRAVY, whisk chicken gravy mix packets into broth in a medium saucepan. Make sure all lumps are gone. Add basil, oregano, poultry seasoning, and 1 T butter. Whisk again. Heat over medium-high heat until gravy comes to a gentle, rolling boil. Stir occasionally to prevent gravy from burning. Reduce heat and let gravy simmer until the puff pastries are done. Serve pastries with gravy on top.

The gravy is the key in this combo--DElicious. It may also be fun to add some greens (spinach or broccoli to the chicken pastries).
