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.
To begin, I saute 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.
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 sauteed onions.
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.
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.
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.
When 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.
- 2 cups cooked and shredded Chicken
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 4 oz cream cheese
- small chopped onion
- 2 cans crescent rolls
