Cheesy Chicken Recipe

Cheesy Chicken Crescent Roll Recipe

2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded (I cook them in the slow cooker overnight, then skin and debone) (A rotisserie chicken from the grocery store would work fabulous too!)
1 8 count crescent rolls
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk or buttermilk
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

***(note: my kids LOVE these, so I double the recipe, and we rarely have leftovers. You will have to experiment to see if you want the extra gravy. Too much makes them mushy, but the family loves it, so sometimes I bake each batch in a separate pan. Everyone gets enough and has all the gravy they want, without any mush. I have also used the garlic flavored crescent rolls, and my husband prefers those)***

    • Preheat oven to 375 degress.
    • Spray 9×13 pan with Pam.
    • Lay out crescent rolls in 4 sections on waxed paper. (Keep the triangles together to form a rectangle).
    • Put shredded chicken and cheese on rolls and roll them up (like a short burrito).
    • Mix cream of chicken soup and milk and heat on stove-top in a small pan until fairly smooth. (add any leftover chicken or cheese to this).
    • Pour between crescent rolls in pan. (Be careful to pour around, not on top or they will be mushy!).
    • Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until crescent rolls are cooked through and brown on top.

  1. I’m not sure I have a favorite cheesecake flavor because I love them all! But I do especially like a plain cheesecake with fancy toppings.

  2. I love berry swirled cheesecake, coffee cheesecake, and chocolate cheesecake. Sorry I could not just pick one flavor.

  3. This looks so good! A great easy after work recipe that my family would love! Also, lol, not sure what this post has to do with cheesecake, but my favorite cheesecake is Oreo!

  4. This looks really easy to make and pretty tasty too. My fiance makes something like this already, but doesn’t use buttermilk. We will have to try it out.

  5. this reminds me of a dish we used to have at school called chicken squares, that we still talk about, only this sounds even better with cheese!

  6. Made these tonight; family loved them. I added red pepper and shallots that I sauteed in a little butter. Easy and delicious.

  7. My family loves how filling and comforting cream soup baked over chicken is. I hadn’t thought about topping it with crescent rolls, but it sounds wonderful. You could even add some peas and carrots to make it like a chicken pot pie casserole.

  8. This looks more than delicious. You should come to my house and prepare it for me-I am a bachelor who is tired of the same old thing

  9. Ive never seen this recipe before but my goodness it looks amazing! I def want to try it bc Iove chicken dishes like this and its super simple!

  18. How do you cook the chicken in a slow cooker over night? I am new to crock pots and love using them! Due to medical issues, I cannot stand over the stove, so this really helps. If I can cook over night in the crock pot that would really help me out! How do I cook em overnight, and for how long is that? Thanks! =)

  19. Sounds good! I like to mix white rice and black beans with some taco seasoning. Then put the rice mixture, lettuce, cheese, and guacamole in a tortilla. delish!

  20. I tried making these but I found the directions hard to follow. For example your picture looked like you had about 8 pieces but mine only came out to four. I didn’t quite understand how you divided the cresent rolls.

    • Sorry for the confusion, I double the recipe, which is why mine makes 8. I normally cook it in 2 pans when I double it so the gravy doesn’t make them mushy, but the night I took the photos, I needed my smaller pans for something else, so I had to use a larger pan:/

  21. my favorite recipe is easy; take chicken, cover it in salsa, sprinkle it with crushed tortilla chips, and then cheese. Bake. Tada!

  22. Thanks for including a print button ion this. Many times, bloggers have not and it makes it much more difficult to get the recipe. This looks SO great! We WILL give it a try…thanks!

  23. These look awesome! I bought a bunch of frozen boneless chicken and was looking for something different to make with it, this is it! Thanks for the recipe!

  24. I’m pretty new at this place and adore the design, could you let me know me where you bought this theme? You can contact me on my e-mail…looking forward to hear from you
