Recipe Notes

Edit note

I don't use as much pepper; probably about half the amount listed.

    Made the recipe exactly. I thought it had a bit too much onion, but my kids loved it... it is really hard to please all of them at one time.

  • Joy McClure by ,

    Is the chicken precooked? Or does it go into the cassaroll raw?

  • Beverly by ,

    I can hardly wait to make this recipe. It sounds absolutely wonderful.
    I might add that I am also confused about the proper way to use the crescent rolls?
    Could I get an answer on that please.
    Plus adding green chillies to the mixture sounds great, to give it a little pizzaz.
    Thank you

  • joyce by ,

    can you add sour cream?

  • barney by ,

    did you just drape the rolls over the casserole?

  • Annie by ,

    Looks absolutely delicious and will be making it!

  • ELIZABETH by ,

    How many calories are in this??

  • LupiniQueen by LupiniQueen ,

    How do you use the two cans of crescent rolls? Recipe is very vague in this regard.

  • Marilyn by ,

    This recipe is easy to de-calorieize. I used low fat rolls, less cheese and milk instead of cream. The cheaters were right...it is easier to lay one can of rolls in the pan, add the filling and top with second can of rolls. Instead of regular cream cheese I used the whipped with chives. This recipe is easy to tinker with to suit your own taste. It should freeze well before baking as frozen pot pies are available.

  • Sandy by ,

    Absolutely loved it and I didn't add any pepper to it

  • Jill Ryan by ,

    Very delicious. I cheated too. I used a can of green in the filling and rolled one can of the rolls in the bottom of a 9x13 dish, baked them for about 10 min, then put the filling in, the other can of rolls, soup mixture, then cheese and baked for the allotted time. Great comfort food and a good use of leftover chicken.

  • Suzanne by ,

    I have made this several times upon request from my two boys. It is a BIG hit. I have to say that I have cheated. Instead of rolling them individually I simply unroll the crescent lay in pan, top with chicken mixture, then 2nd unrolled pack of crescent and soup ontop of that. Also, I don't even heat the soup mixture first, I just mix in a bowl. Cheater yes, but yummy just the same.

  • Jean by ,

    Can't wait to try this!

  • Debbie by ,

    Thanks!!

  • Jenny by ,

    Delicious! One question...can this be frozen prior to baking? Wasn't sure with the crescent rolls in it. Thanks.

  • Meghan by ,

    This was awesome. Definitely recommend. I added the very tips of some blanched broccoli to the mixture for some added flavor, texture, and visual appeal. Yummy....

  • Mike by ,

    In the oven - can't wait!!

    I made the filling ahead of time to let the flavors marry. It was delicious! Great recipe!

  • Brooke by ,

    Where does the second 8oz container of crescent rolls come in? Do I use two per roll-up? I used only one roll of crescent rolls but used the large ones and it looked just like the picture. We all LOVED this recipe!

  • beth by ,

    excited to try it.
