FOOD-Chicken Rollups (AMAZING)

This is the best Pinterest recipe I have found so far! 


One bite into this dish, and I knew that I had found one of my new favorite recipes! It was so delicious, and my husband even took a large second helping! 

If you are cooking for only 2-3 people and don't want leftovers, I would suggest cutting the recipe in half.

Chicken Crescent Roll Casserole
adapted from Recipezaar.com


2 (8 ounce) cans Reduced Fat Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup, undiluted
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese or swiss cheese (or any cheese of choice)
1/2 cup milk

Filling
4 ounces cream cheese (very soft) * I used whipped cream cheese spread*
2 tablespoons butter (very soft but not melted)
1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tsp minced onion flakes
2 large cooked chicken breasts, finely chopped (or use about 2 cups, can use cooked turkey)
1/2-3/4 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper (or to taste)
2 Tbsp. milk
1-2 cup grated cheddar cheese (for topping)

Set oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13 dish with cooking spray. Mix together milk, 3/4 cup cheese and undiluted chicken soup (can season with black pepper if desired).

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. Add in the chopped chicken, onion and cheddar cheese; mix well until combined. Add in 2 tablespoons milk; mix to combine (add in a little more if the mixture seems too dry). Season with seasoned salt or white and black pepper to taste. Unroll the crescent rolls. Place 1 heaping tablespoon chicken mixture (or a little more) 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. Then place the crescent rolls seam-side down on top of the creamed mixture in the casserole.
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. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Some of the comments on the blog said that the rolls were very soggy, so I just put a little drop of the topping on each one instead of smothering it. It worked well. It was so delicious that I'm excited for lunch time so I can have some of the leftovers! 




And I had a couple of rolls leftover, so I made a little dessert for my daughter and me to enjoy after dinner. Spread peanut butter and nutella on in and put a little marshmallow inside and rolled it up. Another pinterest inspired idea!

  2. We loved these, too! Appreciating your comment about bloggers talking about them soggy, we baked them without the sauce for 7 mins. and added the sauce and cheese. This worked well, but am considering cooking the sauce on the stove-top and adding at the very end.

    1. That's a good idea! Maybe I will try cooking it on the stove and adding at the end! Thanks for reading!
