This will also work great with turkey; if you do not have chicken breasts, then use any leftover cooked chicken. If desired you can fill the crescents just with the filling mixture and omit the soup, just brush with butter before baking. They are wonderful just stuffed with the filling! A few members have experienced a soggy bottom, so you might want to consider just drizzling half (or even a little less) of the soup mixture on top and a little around the sides of the crescents, then save the rest of the soup mixture for another time (this will help prevent a soggy bottom). You may use the jumbo crescent rolls and stuff with more chicken mixture :)
I got this recipe out of Jack Daniel's Spirit of Tennessee cookbook. This is Helen Daniel's recipe who is a retired cook from Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House in Lynchburg, TN. If you are planning a trip to that area it is a must that you call and make reservations to eat lunch there. Meals are served at 1 p.m. daily family style with a host at the table who will explain a little of the area history. I have also listed their website here. http://www.jackdaniels.co.uk/tennesseetable/visit.htm
I am not sure where I got this recipe from but it is a great dish to serve for breakfast or brunch. (Note: This dish must be prepared and refrigerated overnight) I like to make it when having overnight guests...just pair it with some fruit salad, coffee, juice and voila breakfast with little effort.
This is a variation of the ones posted. It makes a large pan but can be easily halfed. For the topping you may want to add the melted butter one stick at a time to your taste...some people think four sticks makes it too buttery.
