The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Chicken Crescent Rolls (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Refrigerated crescent roll dough – you can use Pillsbury or any store brand that you like.
  • Cream of chicken soup – use the regular size cans of soup, not the big family size.
  • Cream cheese – we used regular full-fat cream cheese, but you could try reduced fat if you prefer.
  • Fully cooked shredded chicken – this is a great way to use up leftover chicken, or you can pull chicken from a rotisserie chicken. We just cooked chicken in a Crockpot and then shredded it to use in the recipe.
  • Ranch dressing mix – this gives great flavor to the rolls. It does make the sauce look oddly green at first, but it looks great after baking.
  • Green onions – you can leave this ingredient out if you have picky eaters. The onions just add nice flavor to the chicken filling.

How to Make Chicken Crescent Rolls

Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare a 9×13-inch baking dish by spraying with non-stick cooking spray.

To make the sauce, pour the canned soup and cream cheese into a medium pot and heat on the stove over medium heat, stirring often, until the cream cheese is melted and incorporated into the soup. Add the ranch dressing mix and remove the sauce from the heat.

Reserve 1 cup of the sauce, then add the rest to a medium mixing bowl. Add the shredded chicken and green onions; stir well to combine.

It’s okay if some of the chicken filling is peaking out from the ends of the little rolls.

Variations

  • Italian seasoning – instead of ranch dressing mix, you can use a packet of dry Italian dressing mix.
  • Less saucy – for a quicker baking time, place the crescent roll packets on a lightly greased baking sheet, leaving a couple of inches between each roll. Do not add the extra sauce around the rolls (you can use it as a dipping sauce instead) and bake the rolls as directed, but you’ll only need to bake them about 11-12 minutes until the rolls are golden brown.
  • Cheese – bake the rolls as directed, but 5 minutes before they’re done, sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over top and return the casserole to the oven until the cheese is melted.

How to Store Leftovers

Keep the leftover Chicken Crescent Rolls in an airtight food storage container. Refrigerate for up to three days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave in 30 second cooking intervals until warm.

I love this, haven’t made it yet but definitely will – when I do I will use a 13X9 pan and instead of individual crescents I will use the non perforated sheets, one for the bottom and one for the top…otherwise will make the same!5 stars

I’m making them now, well I have everything prepped to make them when hubby says he’s getting hungry, but I like the idea of the sheet ones instead of crescent rolls oh well next time

I’ve got what is probably a dumb question, but do you use just the soup in the can or do you prepare with the water it calls for?

Just what the soup in the can – no water.

Thank you, I’m in the process of making it now.

Can the chicken be substituted with hamburger meat?

Sure. I have never tried it that way, but let me know how it turns out.

Sounds like a great recipe–simple and tasty. Something that will go over well in my household.5 stars

I made this tonight and as I’m only one in house, I only made 8 (rest in covered container to make tomorrow night).  I switched up the soup a little bit and used 1 can Cream of Chicken soup with herbs, and 1 can Cream of celery. I also added 4 stalks of asparagus cut in small pieces. Was DELICIOUS!!!
