    rosie316's Note:

    This is a recipe that my ex sister-in-law and I concocted many years ago. Her family lived in the middle of nowhere, and her & I were left to make our men dinner with what we could find in the fridge and pantry, and this is it. I actually submitted this recipe in a Pillsbury contest and got noted for it (I've since seen several variations on the web). These were named by my 5 year old step-son. He asked what they were called and I told him that they didn't have a name, so he took it upon himself to name them "Chicken Doodles". Twenty+ years and 4 grand-kids later, that is what we still call them. I hope you enjoy them. *Note: I'm guessing at the ingredient amounts of cheese and Kitchen Bouquet, and also for how much of the meat & cheese go into each roll, so use your own judgement. Sorry, I make them by memory and repetition only. P.S. If you can figure out a way to make them "less soggy", please post a note for review of your alterations. Thank you, and enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (8 count) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls (refrigerated)
    • 1 (10 ounce) can white chicken meat packed in water (drained, I use Swanson)
    • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup
    • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can milk (filled only 3/4 way up for thicker sauce)
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet (more or less to desired color & flavor) (optional)
    • 1 cup cheddar cheese (finely shredded, divided)


    1. 1
      Thoroughly drain the canned chicken and empty into a medium size bowl and fluff up (break apart) the chunks with a fork (you will not use it all 'inside' the rolls, but it will be used).
    2. 2
      Unroll chilled crescents and stretch them a bit (to make them wider) on a large cutting board.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 375*F.
    4. 4
      Place a large pinch of chicken (maybe a heaping tablespoon) onto the wide end of each crescent. Add a pinch (maybe 2 teaspoons) of the shredded cheese on top of the meat (See *Note in the intro). Try and fold the points of the wide end in a tad to secure the filling. (This never works for me, but I thought I would suggest it. No worries, what ever falls out while rolling them will get used anyway). Begin to roll up the crescent as you normally would, trying your hardest to keep the filling in them.
    5. 5
      Once rolled, pinch the ends a bit to try and hold everything inches With the ending point underneath, bend rolls into the infamous crescent shape and place each crescent roll into a 9x13x2 non-stick cake pan.
    6. 6
      What ever chicken and cheese that fell out and remains on your cutting board, add it to the bowl with the left-over chicken. Empty the Cream of Chicken soup into the same bowl and add the milk. Mix thoroughly with a fork. Add the Kitchen Bouquet, if using, to desired color and flavor of the sauce. Mix again.
    7. 7
      Pour the soup mixture around the rolls and lightly spoon a small amount over the top of the rolls. Place a pinch of cheese (maybe a tablespoon) over the top of each roll (and sprinkle a bit in between the rolls over the sauce). Bake for approx 20-25 minutes (times may vary). When risen, golden brown and bubbly, they're done.

      The best thing about this recipe is how easy it is to make, which was a boon because I was sick and just didn't have it in me for any big-time cooking. I did not find the doodles soggy at all- they were like big dumplings in gravy. The sauce was great, but I did not care for the chicken filling. This was my first time using canned chicken, and I will probably never use it again. I think this recipe would be even better with uncanned cooked chicken or even pepperoni or sausage.

      We enjoyed this recipe rosie316 especially in the season of winter because it's the epitome of comfort food. So easy to assemble, I put it together in no time at all. I followed the recipe to a T, except I added some onion powder and I didn't have Kitchen Bouquet so I used Gravy Master. I also double the recipe because I was afraid that it may not have been enough for us. Rosie, I didn't think that it was soggy at all. We all enjoyed it very much. Thank you rosie316 for posting.

      One of the most best inexpensive recipes I have tried in a while. Easy to make, and great also because the ingredients are fairly common, and I usually have on hand. Cooking time was right on the money, and made for a great dinner. BTW: family loved the recipe name too. Made for PRMR>
