Chicken Crescent Rolls

I’ve been planning to make this Chicken Crescent Rolls Recipe for weeks.

We have a local grocery store here that makes the most delicious rotisserie chickens, so I thought I’d get one to use in this for some added flavor.

You could also make this with boneless skinless chicken breasts, or Instant Pot Poached Chicken.

My preferred method would be to leave them in the slow cooker all day so they’d be nice and tender, but any cooked and shredded chicken would work – even canned chicken.

Chicken Crescent Rolls

To begin, I sauté my chopped onions so they are tender and clear, you could even add some diced jalapenos for some spice!

A dab of butter, olive oil, or cooking spray in the pan helps these cook up nicely.

 

Chicken Crescent Rolls

Shred the chicken and mix it in a bowl with the cream cheese (can use plain or flavored) and 1 cup shredded cheddar (I used sharp), and the sautéed onions.

Chicken Crescent Rolls

Lay your crescent rolls out so that they form a rectangle.

I smash the creases together so it holds.

Now, this recipe calls for 2 cans, I have a cutting board off to the side with 4 more rectangles on it.

Chicken Crescent Rolls

Put a dollop of the mixture onto each roll.

To start folding them up, bring two opposing corners together over the top.

Bring in the other two corners.

Bring in the sides and squish it up to close so the cheese doesn’t melt out.

Chicken Crescent Rolls

You bake it at 375 for about 15-20 minutes – it is crucial to make sure that the crescents cook all the way through or it will be gross.

Chicken Crescent RollsWhen they are done, they are delicious!

I have dozens of variations in mind to try, from adding dry ranch mix, to bacon bits, to different flavors of cream cheese.

Chicken Crescent RollsI typically serve these with Roasted Green Beans, Fried Okra, and Instant Pot Corn on the Cob.

My family has enjoyed these chicken bundles for the past 30 yrs! A few things I do differently- I add 3/4 cup chopped celery to sauté along with the onions. I add 1 cup of chopped mushrooms to the chicken & cream cheese mixture & OMIT the sharp cheddar. Before adding the bundles to the oven I brush the tops with melted butter & add a generous sprinkling of seasoned bread crumbs. We top ours with a cream of chicken soup sauce just before serving. Simply add 1/3 soup can of milk to the cream of chicken soup & heat until hot! This is one of our very favorite supper meals. We serve it with a vegetable & mashed potatoes topped with the remaining cream of chicken soup!
