This was great! I steamed up some cauliflower and stuck them in the casserole between the crescent rolls and poured all the soup and cheese over it. This way I was able to get the veggies in the casserole and it made it even heartier!!! I used all organic ingredients just fyi. My husband loved it so much he kissed my hand literally! lol Read More

Wow...my boyfriend has renamed this dish "Chicken Disaster-ole." We made this according to the directions without adding broccoli or other veggies. The chicken was completely flavorless even though I tried to avoid this by simmering with vegetable broth and seasonings before shredding. This makes more than 4 servings holy cow who needs 1/2 can of crescent rolls per person! Also I didn't feel there was enough sauce maybe add more milk? I love quick easy casseroles but this is not one I will ever waste the ingredients to make again. Read More

This is something that is requested often at my house. I usually cook my chicken in the crockpot all day and assemble the casserole at dinner time. The chicken shreds incredibly easy cooking it this way. Our favorite veggies to eat with this dish is spinach, onions, and roasted red bell peppers, which I normally throw in the crockpot along with the chicken. I season my chicken with salt, pepper, garlic, and onion powder. I also drain the broth from the chicken and veggies really well and add softened cream cheese before rolling the filling in the crescents. I bake the rolls without the soup so it's not so doughy then add the soup mixture and top with cheese with a few minutes under the broiler. Sooo delicious. Read More

Fantastic! I added steamed mixed veggies and with my food processor it shredded the chicken quick with little effort. I served on top of mashed potatoes and my hubs had thirds. I'd say that's a rating in its self!! Read More

I loved it! The process of shredding the chicken was a little tedious but well worth the effort. The addition of the broccoli as mentioned in the by HotintheKitchen25 was a nice touch and rounded out the whole meal. Read More

This was yummy. I make a similar dish but tried it is his way to see which I'd like best. I make mine pot-pie style...layer of crescents rolls on bottom of dish, then chicken and other ingredients, layer the top with crescent rolls. I don't shred the chicken but cut it in halves. My way provides a crunchier pastry. All a matter of preference though! Loved the spin on it. Read More

YUM!! Will definitely make this again. I bought a pre-roasted chicken to save time and added a cup of frozen broccoli florets as suggested and it was just perfect! Read More

A family favorite for years and years. I'm not sure when it was first posted, but it has been copied into a well-worn cookbook. Use cream of mushroom or chicken. To make it even easier, buy a rotisserie chicken and cut it into small chunks (no need to dirty your food processor. Stuff the crescents with your favorite cheese and the chicken. Put your veggies (frozen/fresh - whatever you have on hand) in the cream soup and heat separately. I also add a few dashes of Weber roasted garlic and herb spice. I like to spray the crescent pan I use with a cooking spray for easier clean-up. Place the stuffed rolls in the pan and place in the oven to get toasty brown. Remove the pan and pour your soup /veggie mix over the crescents. Place back into the oven until bubbly hot. Read More
