Tuesday Treats: Cheesy Chicken Crescent Roll

When the weather is nice and we’d rather be doing something else, need something filling but want something light, this is a recipe that not only looks like you spent a lot of time on it, it’s oh-so-tasty.

Prep Time: 20min.
Total Time: 52min.
Servings: 8 servings

Break out the refrigerated crescent rolls and knock their socks off with this Cheesy Chicken Crescent Roll recipe. This crescent roll recipe is super easy.

What You Need
1/2 cup KRAFT Real Mayo Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. GREY POUPON Dijon Mustard
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1-1/2 cups KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup chopped red peppers
1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Make It

Heat oven to 350ºF.
Mix first 3 ingredients until blended.

Combine chicken, cheese and peppers in large bowl.

Add mayo mixture; mix lightly.

Unroll crescent dough on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray; firmly press perforations and seams together to form 12×8-inch rectangle. Spread chicken mixture onto dough to within 2 inches of edges. Use kitchen shears or sharp knife to make cuts, 1 inch apart, on long sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling. Pull strips up over filling, crisscrossing dough in center.

Bake 28 to 32 min. or until golden brown.

Kitchen Tips: It’s easier to make the cuts on the dough before placing the filling down the middle. Also, I’m not a fan of red peppers, so I’ve been known to substitute jalepanos, and Lawyer Guy prefers Miracle Whip to mayo.

To get all the details, click on over to KRAFT. Believe it or not, this is a dish that Hannah MacIntire can actually fix reliably on a continuing basis. Yeah, yeah. Mac and Liam were amazed too. 😉 Of course, they have no idea of how many times the “roll” ended up in the trash because a) it turned into a doorstop, b) it was raw in the middle, c) the filling oozed out, d) you don’t want to know. FYI, I am avoiding Hannah at the moment because she might punch me for spilling her secret. Thing is, regular people (who can…you know…COOK!) have no problem with this recipe. If any of you would like Hannah’s story, I suggest MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS. You get the beginning of her and Mac’s life-long love, plus the story that happens between BLOOD MOON and BAD MOON. It’s available at most on-line retailers. You can click on the cover to head over to the page with all the links.

  1. Doorstop… ROFL… :hides from Hannah:

    I always think about doing these crescent roll things, but I never remember to buy crescent rolls. And they’re not something I keep in the house. Maybe I’ll make some dough and do something similar. :fingers crossed it doesn’t turn into a doorstop for me:

      Yeah. I’m hiding from Hannah too. 😆 You might try it with your pizza dough. You don’t want it to rise or anything. Just be flakey. And no, Hannah! I am not insinuating that YOU are flakey! 😉

Got something to say?
