Savory Chicken Bites

Makes 32 chicken appetizers                 
  1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil, crushed
  1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  Dash thyme leaves, crushed
  1 cup minced cooked chicken
  1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  1 jar (2 ounces) chopped pimiento, drained
  2 cans (8 ounces each) crescent rolls
  1 egg, beaten
  1 teaspoon sesame seeds, optional
Combine cream cheese, lemon juice, basil, salt, thyme; mix until well blended. Stir in chicken, celery, and pimiento; mix  well.
Separate dough into eight rectangles, firmly pressing the perforations to seal. Spread cream cheese mixture over each      rectangle, leaving 1/2 inch uncovered on one long edge. Roll up, starting with the long edge which has cream cheese right  to the edge; seal edges. Brush rolls with egg; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cut each roll into 4 portions. Place chicken    bites, seam side down, on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Serve       immediately.
