Chicken Club Squares

A couple weeks ago I was sent some promotional products from Pillsbury. Along with some other products inside my box was 2 rolls of their new crescent roll product called crescent recipe creations. I decided to throw together some things that were in my kitchen and came up with these Chicken Club Squares. Instead of having a club sandwich for your lunch or dinner you can now switch it up a bit and have the sandwich for an appetizer with these bars.

Although I did not make mine with tomatoes I added them into the ingredients of the recipe because I feel it would compliment the rest of the ingredients and it would also add some nice color. See my beautifully seasoned Pampered Chef stone? Isn't she beautiful. Her and her brothers and sisters are my bestest friends. ;) I <3>

My recipe testers all gave these 2 thumbs up. In fact, they liked them so much that they finished off the entire tray. But that was ok with me because they would have gone bad in the fridge overnight. They really are best if they are eaten within a few hours of being assembled. Wait, lets rewind a moment, I fibbed a teeny bit, my sister left the last one for my husband but he so graciously let me have it. What a man, what a man. :)

I came back because I forgot to mention the best thing about these new crescent recipe creations. They are trans fat free!! The same thing can not be said for the regular crescent rolls.
