Savory Chicken Pillows

This is a recipe that I created by combining many similar recipes for Chicken Pillows, Chicken Squares, etc.
{Savory Chicken Pillows}
2 C cooked, chopped chicken
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 - 1 1/2 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 Tbsp finely diced fresh onion
2 Tbsp chopped celery, optional
salt and pepper, to taste
2 cans regrigerator crescent rolls
melted butter
bread crumbs, onion powder, basil
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
water, optional

Mix first six ingredients together. Unroll crescent dough. Press seams of two crescent together to form rectangles. Divide mixture between dough. Fold dough over and pinch seams to seal. Combine 1/2 -1 C bread crumbs with 1/2 tsp onion powder and a sprinkle of dried basil (or parsley) leaves. Melt butter. Dip top-side of "pillow" into the melted butter, then in the seasoned bread crumbs. Place on a cookie sheet. Bake according to crescent directions. Check for doneness on bottom side of the crescent. Make a simple gravy with cream of chicken soup and a splash of milk, or reserved chicken water. Heat through and serve over chicken pillows.
