Chicken Crescent Rolls
Just 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep for these easy, cheesy chicken crescent rolls!
Servings 4 people
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a bowl, stir together soup, milk, and ½ cup of cheese. Pour into the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine chicken and remaining ½ cup of cheese.
Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into 8 triangles. Place about 1-2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture on the wide end of each crescent roll.
Roll the dough up and place each crescent roll (seam-side down) in the bottom of the dish.
Bake, uncovered, until the liquid is bubbly and the tops of the crescent rolls are browned (about 25 minutes). The bottom of the rolls (that are submerged in the sauce) will stay soft – like dumplings -- but will still be cooked through.
- The rolls are done when the tops are golden brown and the sauce is hot and bubbly. The bottom part of the rolls (that are submerged in the sauce) are not going to get crispy and golden, since they're not exposed to the air. Instead, they will be soft and tender like dumplings. That's fine! They will still cook through -- you're not eating raw dough. If you don't want the crescent rolls to have that soft texture on the bottom, you can bake them on a separate baking sheet first, and then add them to the sauce at the end to finish in the oven.
- Canned Chicken Crescent Rolls: you need 1 cup of cooked, diced chicken for this recipe. You can use canned chicken, or you can use store-bought rotisserie chicken or store-bought pre-cooked chicken (such as Perdue ShortCuts or Tyson Grilled n' Ready). If you have more time, you can also cook your own chicken at home to use in this recipe. Leftover shredded chicken from a previous meal also works well!
- Garnish the top of the roll-ups with chopped fresh parsley or other fresh herbs for a bright, colorful finishing touch.
