We all really enjoyed this recipe. It’s very easy to make and would be easy to make ahead. The only complaint that I have read on this recipe is that some people said that the crescent rolls were too doughy. If you cook them long enough this will not be a problem. I cooked them for 40 minutes and they were perfect. I suggest watching for the rolls to rise up. When they have risen they are ready! Like I said this is a great recipe. The filling reminds me of chicken salad. If you have left over chicken salad this would be a great way to use it up!


Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 ounce) cans Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
  • 1/2 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup 18% table cream (or use whipping cream)
Filling:

  • 2 ounces cream cheese (very soft)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (very soft but not melted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/3 cup onion, finely chopped (can use green onions)
  • 1 small can of chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise or whipping cream
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (for topping)
Directions:

  1. Set oven to 350°F.
  2. Butter a casserole dish (any size to hold crescent rolls).
  3. In a saucepan, mix half and half cream, 3/4 cup grated cheese (can use more cheese if desired) and undiluted chicken soup (can season with black pepper if desired).
  4. Heat just until the cheese melts (do not boil).
  5. For the filling --- (make certain that the cream cheese and butter are very soft) in a bowl, mix the soft cream cheese with butter until very smooth, then add in garlic powder (if using).
  6. Add in the chopped chicken, onion and cheddar cheese; mix well until combined.
  7. Add in 2 tablespoons whipping cream or mayonnaise; mix to combine (add in a little more if the mixture seems too dry).
  8. Season with seasoned salt or white and black pepper to taste.
  9. Unroll the crescent rolls.
  10. Place 1 heaping tablespoon chicken mixture (or a little more) on top of each crescent triangle, then roll up starting at the thicker end.
  11. Drizzle a small amount of soup mixture on the bottom of the dish.
  12. Then place the crescent rolls seam-side down on top of the creamed mixture in the casserole.
  13. Drizzle the remaining sauce on top (you don't have to use the full amount of cream sauce, just use as much as desired) and sprinkle with 1 cup (or more) grated cheese, or amount desired.
  14. Bake for about 30-40 minutes.
