Chicken Croissants

After having our third monkey, several people were kind enough to bring us dinner. One dinner in particular was a huge hit at our house. I asked the preparer for the recipe. Once I got it, my husband asked me to make it that night and several times since. These are refrigerated crescent rolls filled with a chicken mixture, rolled in Ritz crackers and baked until golden. Served with a quick cream of chicken soup sauce, these are easy to make for a crowd.
