Here’s a recipe I found a while ago and it tasted so great that it is now a staple in our house. Basically, Chicken Roll-Ups are yummy goodness inside crescent rolls. Um, yes please!
I suggest reading through the instructions before attempting to make it. The recipe is NOT difficult to make, but there are a lot of steps to follow. Take your time and your family will thank you with empty plates. I promise!
- 2 cans crescent dinner rolls, 8 oz each
- 1 can cream of chicken soup, 10 3/4 oz
- 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 oz cream cheese, very soft
- 2 TBSP butter, very soft but not melted
- 1/2 - 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp minced onion flakes
- 2 large cooked chicken breasts, finely chopped (about 2 cups)
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (adjust for your taste)
- 2 TBSP milk
- 1 - 2 cups grated cheddar cheese for topping
- Set oven to 350 degrees and spray 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray
- Mix milk, 3/4 cup cheese and undiluted chicken sour in a bowl, set aside
- In a bowl, mix the soft cream cheese with the butter until very smooth, add garlic powder.
- Add the chopped chicken, onion and cheddar cheese to the cream cheese mixture and mix until well combined
- Add 2 TBSP milk and mix to combine (add a small amount more if mixture seems too dry)
- Season with seasoned salt or white and black pepper to taste
- Unroll crescent rolls
- Place 1 heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture on top of each crescent triangle, then roll up starting at the thicker end.
- Drizzle a small amount of soup mixture on the bottom of the dish.
- Place the crescent rolls seam-side down on top of the soup mixture in the baking dish
- Drizzle the remaining soup mixture on top of the roll-ups (use as much or as little as desired, you do not have to use the entire amount of sauce)
- Sprinkle with 1 cup (or more) grated cheese
- Bake for 30 minutes
The Chicken Roll-Ups are AMAZING! My hubby went nuts for them, so we make them about once a month. Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed.
