Cheesy Chicken Crescent Roll Recipe

2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded (I cook them in the slow cooker overnight, then skin and debone)
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.

    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.

    • September 2, 2012 - 4:28 pm | Permalink

      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:/

    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!

    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! =)

      Sorry, I am taken :) However, this one is very easy to make, especially if you used a rotisserie chicken! It would have just enough left overs for lunch the next day too!

    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.
