  • 1

    1. Set oven to 350°F.

  • 2

    2. Butter a casserole dish (any size to hold crescent rolls).

  • 3

    3. In a saucepan, mix half and half cream, 3/4 cup grated cheese (can use more cheese if desired) and undiluted chicken soup (can season with black pepper if desired).

  • 4

    4. Heat just until the cheese melts (do not boil).

  • 5

    5. For the filling --- (make certain that the cream cheese and butter are very soft) in a bowl, mix the soft cream cheese with butter until very smooth, then add in garlic powder (if using).

  • 6

    6. Add in the chopped chicken, onion and cheddar cheese; mix well until combined.

  • 7

    7. Add in 2 tablespoons whipping cream or mayonnaise; mix to combine (add in a little more if the mixture seems too dry).

  • 8

    8. Season with seasoned salt or white and black pepper to taste.

  • 9

    9. Unroll the crescent rolls.

  • 10

    10. Place 1 heaping tablespoon chicken mixture (or a little more) on top of each crescent triangle, then roll up starting at the thicker end.

  • 11

    11. Drizzle a small amount of soup mixture on the bottom of the dish.

  • 12

    12. Then place the crescent rolls seam-side down on top of the creamed mixture in the casserole.

  • 13

    13. Drizzle the remaining sauce on top (you don’t have to use the full amount of cream sauce, just use as much as desired) and sprinkle with 1 cup (or more) grated cheese, or amount desired.

  • 14

    14. Bake for about 30 minutes.


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

    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

    How many calories are in this??

  • LupiniQueen

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

  • Marilyn

    This recipe is easy to de-calorieize. I used low fat rolls, less cheese and milk instead of cream. The cheaters were 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.

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

  • Jill Ryan

    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.

    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.

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

  • Meghan

    by , March 5, 2012

    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....

    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!
