- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 cans Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
- black pepper
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (, topping)
- Boil the Chicken Breasts for 20 minutes, or until they are completely cooked.
- Remove them from the boiling water and let them cool.
- Once they have cooled, cut them into bite size pieces.
- Combined the Cooked Chicken, Cream of Chicken Soup, 2 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Salt and Black pepper in a large bowl and mix well.
- Remove the Crescent Rolls from the cans, separate them into the pre-cut triangles and roll them out slightly.

This is similar to one of our family favorites only, better. I added a can of cream of broccoli soup in addition to the two cream of chicken to make a little "gravy". The next time, though, I will reduce the cheese by half. Three cups was a bit much for our tastes. Still, this recipe has replaced the old one in my recipe file!
I thought this was very good and very easy. I will definitely do this one again. I used low fat cream of chicken soup and I think next time I will use less cheese.
I tried this tonight. It was so EASY! My family loved it! I did add a small onion and some pepper. I also used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, this made it really easy and fast. I will add this to my list of weeknight regulars!
