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.

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.

  1. I love this recipe, but While I tried to copy it, the recipe kept going back to original part so I had to keep going back to where I wanted to be! Very frustrating!

    My husband never says anything nice about my cooking but he loves this!! My only comment is that the first time I made it it was very salty. I rinsed the chicken this time and it was much better.

    Question, anyone else have a huge amount of the mixture left over?? I made 16, but only put a small scoop in each and it was still spilling out. I feel like I have enough mixture to make like 50 more! Can I freeze the mixture?

    1. Hi Jennifer. Yes, you can freeze the mixture with good results. I usually have a little left over but not what you are describing.

    Hubby & I really enjoyed as a quick light lunch. I wanted to shake some poultry seasoning into the soup mixture but couldn’t find it. Next time! Oh & a little Cranberry sauce side. Today we had homemade applesauce as our side.

    I saved these in my Facebook page 2 years ago and never got around to making them. Then they showed up in my memories a couple days ago and I figured I would give them a try. These were delicious and a huge hit with the whole family. I served them on top of white rice made with cream of chicken and shredded cheese mixed in. I also added cheese on top of the chicken packets a few minutes before they were done baking. It was very yummy! I will definitely make again!
