Before I start, I have to say – not only does this dish look delicious, but the picture does not do it justice. It’s buttery, flaky, cheesy and will have you wanting an after dinner mint!
I’m not going to beat around the bush. Let’s get down to it!
Chicken Crescent Rolls
- 2 8 oz cans crescent rolls
- 1 10 3/4 oz can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
- 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese (for the sauce)
- 1/2 cup half and half or whipping cream (not heavy) – I used a half and half substitute of 4 1/2 tbsp butter + whole milk = 1 cup
- 4 oz cream cheese (very soft)
- 4 tbsp butter (very soft, not melted)
- 1/2 – 1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
- 1/3 cup onion – can use green onions (I used minced dried onions)
- 2 large chicken breasts, cooked and finely chopped (if you can go shredded, I recommend it)
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese (for the chicken mix)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 – 4 tbsp mayonnaise (I used the one with olive oil)
- 1 – 2 cups grated cheddar cheese (to sprinkle on top)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter/grease the pan (whatever size will hold all the rolls)
- For filling, mix cream cheese and butter until very smooth; add garlic powder
- Add in chicken, onion and cheese; mix until well combined
- Add 2 tbsp mayo or whipping cream; mix to combine, adding more if mixture is dry; salt/pepper to taste; set mix aside
- In a saucepan, mix half and half, 3/4 c cheese and undiluted cream of chicken soup; heat until cheese melts – don’t boil – salt/pepper to taste
- Put a thin layer of soup mixture in bottom of baking dish
- Bust out the crescent rolls!
- Place a tablespoon full of chicken mixture on thick part of roll; roll from thick end and seal sides as best as possible; place seam-side down in dish; repeat until dish is full or you’re out of crescent rolls
- Drizzle the remaining soup mix on top of rolls; sprinkle with cheese
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool, so everything settles. Serve and enjoy!
I didn’t do anything much different from the original recipe, except where noted. Definitely going to make again… and again… and again.
