This recipe was a go with my family. Both youngins took a few bites, which says a lot! Husband comes home late from work, so his was waiting for him in the fridge. Reheated in the microwave, and he still raved about how good the Chicken Roll-Ups were! I had a bit of trouble in a couple of areas. #1 getting the onion to a fine grate. My food processor just wasn't going for it, but my kiddos don't do onion, so this step was a must. #2, rolling up the crescents... Mine turned into little pockets instead of roll-ups. Thankfully, food presentation isn't huge around here! All in all, it was a plesant surprise to find that we ALL enjoyed this recipe. Thank you, Kay14!!

Yum! Family pleaser. Everyone ate them up! My kids are very picky and this was simple yet tasteful enough that they asked for seconds!!

I love this recipe. I just use cream cheese with chives instead of cream cheese with the onions. Less work. I usually put two crescent rolls together in a square, put the mixture in the middle, pull together the corners, and twist. Looks cute and tasts YUMMY!
