Crescent Roll Casserole Recipe


There are a lot of different ways to use crescent rolls but this casserole might just be one of the best. Crescent rolls are filled with a chicken and cream cheese mixture and then topped with cheddar cheese and baked in a casserole dish. This is a great way to use up leftover chicken or leftover turkey. This recipe does require a little work but its well worth it in the end. You can leave out the soup if you want and just have the crescent rolls with the filling inside. Just make sure the brush the crescent rolls with butter before baking. This is a fantastic dish to make for winter and is something everyone is sure to enjoy.

Ingredients:
2 (8 ounce) cans Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup whipping cream
Filling-
4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
4 tablespoons butter (softened)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup onions (finely chopped)
2 large cooked chicken breasts (chopped)
¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ teaspoon seasoning salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
2-4 tablespoons mayonnaise (or whipping cream)
1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (for topping)

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a casserole dish. In a saucepan mix whipping cream, ¾ cup of cheese, and chicken soup. Heat just until the cheese melts. Remove from heat and set aside.
Step 2: To make the filling- in a bowl mix cream cheese and butter until smooth, add garlic powder. Add in the chopped chicken, onion and cheddar cheese. Mix until well combined. Add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise (or whipping cream) mix to combine. You can add a little more if the mixture seems too dry. Season with seasoning salt and black pepper to taste.
Step 3: Drizzle a small amount of the chicken soup mixture on the bottom of the casserole dish. Unroll the crescent rolls, and place 1 heaping tablespoon of the chicken mixture on top of each crescent triangle, then roll up starting at the thicker end. Place into the dish seam-side down. Repeat until all of the crescent rolls have been used up. Drizzle the remaining soup mixture on top and sprinkle 1-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese on top. Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
(Makes 6 Servings)

    wont the crescents be doughy and soggy on the bottom from the soup

  3. Angie — January 5, 2011 @ 4:13 pm

    They’re not soggy at all. I’ve tried a similar recipe to this one and the soup is just a base so the rolls don’t stick to the bottom. :)

    I make a similar recipe and to keep the crescents from being doughy, I fill them, put them in the dish and bake them about 15 minutes until they begin to very lightly brown. Then I pour over the soup, add the cheese and finish baking. Works great! One of my family’s favorites!

    I just made this for dinner and everyone love it. Got the thumbs up from one son and the other said “Its a keeper”! Very very good

    I made these for dinner tonight. YUMMY! I have a picky 9 year old and a “not very adventurous eater” 4 year. This dinner produced cleaned plates and no tears. That makes it a “keeper” in my book! It isn’t the healthiest, but I served it with raw carrots, sliced cucumbers, green beans and clementines. Maybe that helps offset the fat. Lol!

    I made a variation of this last night! (but for four servings – with fat-free cheeses, FF cream of chicken, FF mayonnaise, etc. and no whipping cream) I was worried it wouldn’t be right with all of the changes but the recipe held and was AMAZING. My husband couldn’t believe how low calorie it was – we thought the garlic powder really added a nice kick. Thank you for sharing!

    has anyone tried this using the new flavored cream cheeses? i know they have a garlic flavored one… might cut out some of the ingredients and steps and make it even easier!! which is always a plus for me!

  14. mike sieke — December 16, 2011 @ 7:26 pm

    Found this through Pinterest and I’m so glad I did!!! Made it last night and I cant wait to have the leftovers for lunch. I just made half since I only have 3 mouths to feed so one can of crescent rolls was enough. Used 2% condensed milk instead of whipping cream or mayo, 98
