You can prepare the soup/chicken mixture in advance and refrigerate, just warm in the microwave or on top of the stove before topping with the crescent crust. I have also added in some cooked cubed potatoes to the filling mixture. This casserole is easy and delicious! You can double all amounts and bake in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish if desired.
