Upscale Chicken Divan Crescent Bake

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 25 mins

This totally yummy casserole appeals to everyone. There are subtle underlying flavors from the dijon and sherry that make it a bit more special, and it serves beautifully. Once you've made this, you will probably think of many variations. For example, a great brunch option is to make it vegetarian style, using a spinach, mushroom and feta filling (and mushroom soup on top).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray 9x9 pan with non-stick spray (use a 9x13 pan for a double batch, as shown in the photo).
  2. Filling: combine chicken, broccoli, mayo and cheese lightly. Set aside.
  3. Sauce: combine all sauce ingredients. Place ONE CUP sauce in bottom of casserole dish and set remaining sauce aside.
  4. Assembly: Unwrap Crescent Rolls into 8 pieces. Place one-eighth of the filling onto the longer side of each triangle and roll up. Place rolls on top of 1 cup sauce in casserole dish, seam side down and allowing an inch between rolls so that the crescents will brown on 3 sides. ** Don't pour remaining sauce on top just yet.
  5. Bake rolls at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. The tops will be slightly brown - remove from oven and pour remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese on top.
  6. Return to oven for 5 more minutes until cheese melts.

This was a very tasty dish and surprisingly easy to put together. I used thawed frozen broccoli to cut down on prep time. I did have quite a bit of filling left over, and I filled the rolls almost to bursting. I made 8 rolls and I think it might have been easier to just make 4 rolls with the 4 small rectangles of crescent roll dough. That said, this was really not hard to put together. I don't think assembly took more than 10 minutes which was a lot less than I was expecting. I think next time I might not bake the rolls with the sauce though. The dough on the undersides of the rolls was uncooked due to them sitting in the sauce. I think it might be better to bake the rolls alone, heat the sauce in a small saucepan and serve the sauce at the table. Next time I will also be omitting the curry powder. I don't really like curry but I wanted to stay true to the recipe the first time. The flavor wasn't as overpowering and offensive as I had imagined it might be, but I think I would still like the sauce more if I replaced the curry powder with another seasoning. Thanks CookinDiva! This is a simple yet fancy dish that I would definitely serve to guests.
