Kittencal - this is such a great recipe! I've been wanting to make it ever since I discovered it several months ago... Tonight, I decided I'd try it out for dinner, but I wanted a spicier taste. I usually follow the recipe exactly the first go-round, but did not this time. I used a store bought rotisserie chicken breast, and (as always) I hand shredded the meat. I mixed the meat with some taco seasoning, and then mixed it with cream cheese, butter, garlic powder, shredded cheddar cheese, about 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise, and about the same of salsa. I rolled the mixture up in the crescent rolls and baked them in a greased dish sans any sauce. I did serve some salsa with peach preserves mixed in on the side. The taste was right on the spot!! I made a total of 6 bundles and my DH and I ate 3 on spot, two are packed for his lunch tomorrow, and one is packed for mine. I think that the next time, I will try the original version. Thanks for giving me inspiration for another dinner night! :)
Oh Kittencal, I think we're foodie twins. This was AGAIN such an amazing recipe. I made it as dinner one night and ended up only using one can of crescent rolls cause I bought the jumbo buttery ones (a very good idea). The next morning, my boyfriend decided to make it with a breakfast twist! He cooked breakfast sausage, and mixed in cheddar cheese and some eggs. He didn't cook the eggs all the way so when they went in the oven they didn't over cook. SO GOOD!
I used a jellyroll pan and did not put sauce on the bottom of the pan. They cooked in about 15 minutes and were perfect - no soggy bottom, no uncooked roll anywhere. Served with the sauce on the side. Also they were great the next day! I plan on making these again
Ok I cheated! Instead of individual rolls i laid a layer of crescent roll on bottom, then mixture, another layer of crescent roll, then sauce. Even with this lazy change my family LOVED this! Woo Hoo! Another recipe to add to our "favorites"!
WAY too salty. Followed the recipe exactly. Wasn't too salty the second time around without the sauce, (had leftover filling, so made for lunch next day) but I won't be making this again.
Just finished baking this dish....and it was fabulous!!! I use the extra large crescents which brown nicely and no soggy bottom, and yes, I used just a small amount on the bottom of the baking dish. After I put the filling ingredients together, I tasted it to be sure it was what I liked and it was!!!! Instead of using raw onions, I used minced. I think I'll add mushrooms and some pimento next time. I thinned out the sauce just a little and used the amount of cheese given... I may try adding white wine .....for the adult version!
I really, really wanted to like this since I always love Kittencal's recipes. I am sorry to say it was just OK. I made this for a visiting relative and she said "This is lovely" (she's English so I think this means "so-so"). My husband was silent and did not have seconds. I made as directed but did not put sauce on the bottom. Even after 40 min. the bottoms of the rolls were not done. We ate it anyway as all the sides were ready. It's not that it tasted bad by any means, but with so much cheese, etc. it was hard to tell there was any chicken even though I used a bit more than called for. On the other hand, our one year old grandaughter loved it...
Made this tonight for the family. They absolutely loved it, but it was too salty. Next time, I think I will cut out any salt, the cheese adds enough salt for our tastes. Also, I cooked it for 35 mins and it was just perfect! I did not find it soggy at all.
Another incredible recipe. I tell everyone to always look for kittencal's recipes. They are all the best.
fantastic! i've had this saved forever and finally got around to making it! this is a great make ahead dish, which i love! the only changes i made were to add minced garlic, serrano peppers and fresh parsley to the filling, and i used leftover rotisserie chicken. i decided to just bake the crescents and drizzle the sauce on as i served it and served with more sauce on the side. oh and i did play around with the sauce a bit, adding garlic powder, lots of black pepper and fresh parsley. next time i will try the jumbo crescents and bake the rolls in the sauce as written. thanks for another keeper carol!!! the flavors are really outstanding. bravo!
