Alright, I owe my recipe lovers an apology – I was just TOO TIRED and FULL to post it last night as promised. So I am back bright and early this morning* to make ammends.
*(Yah I totally started this post at 7:30 this morning and it’s now 11:30… lol… oh well.)
Now, this recipe comes with a few warnings..
A) It REALLY can’t be that good for you. Holy CHEESE, batman!
B) It’s a little labour intensive. I found myself swearing a few times “This recipe chaps my ass!!” while prepping it last night.. lol I’m including lots of pics to make it easier, and keep in mind that you COULD prep the filling the night before and refrigerate it.
But both warnings aside, it’s SO worth it and we have it about once a month in our house.
Crescent Roll Chicken Casserole:

– 4 tablespoons of butter
– 2 tablespoons of cream
– salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. Open cresent rolls and lay them out on a cutting board.
In a medium size mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, butter & garlic powder until well mixed. Make sure that your butter and cream cheese are very soft.
Add chicken and 1/2 cup of cheddar, mix well.
Scoop one tablespoon full of mixture onto each crescent roll:
Pour a little bit of cream into the baking dish, spreading it evenly over the bottom.
Place the rolled up crescents into the dish, making sure that they are placed widest part at the bottom:
In a pan on the stove, heat the can of soup, 1/2 cup of cheddar, 2 tablespoons of cream and salt and pepper to taste. Only heat until cheese melts, do not boil.
Pour sauce over crescent rolls and top with remaining cheddar:
Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes, then remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
