  • Combine chicken, cream of chicken soup, water chestnuts, mayonnaise, mushrooms, and sour cream in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until bubbling, about 10 minutes.

  • Pour chicken mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread crescent roll dough over chicken mixture, covering the whole surface and sealing the seams together; brush with butter. Sprinkle Swiss cheese over butter layer and top with almonds.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crescent rolls are lightly browned and cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Cream of mushroom soup can be substituted for the cream of chicken.

This a great starting off place for a variety of chicken & crescent casseroles... I've used this as a basic go-to several times. First we don't like canned soups so I use a jar of Alfredo Sauce. I saute brown mushrooms rather than use canned. Spinach is way good with mushrooms but squeeze out the water before adding spinach to the sauce. Sometimes I steam (and drain) broccoli or cauliflower and chop it in. I always make this as a 9-by-9 casserole with half the crescent rolls on bottom (prick all over with a fork) then chicken and cheese and sauce and veggies in the middle. I skip the mayo and the butter... Maybe a bit of olive oil if you must. It's not going to be bland if the starting ingredients are good. A rotisserie chicken from the supermarket deli is quick to pick off the bone and real tasty. Love this basic recipe Sara. Read More
