Baked Chicken in Crescent Rolls for 2

"This is my version of a recipe that was in a local magazine from our power company. I changed around a few of the ingredients and scaled it to feed two. Hope you enjoy. I love it because it is pretty quick and easy. Just add a salad and green beans and you have a wonderful meal."

Ready In:




  • Poach the chicken for 15 minutes in enough water to cover; salt and pepper the water; remove from water, cool and cut into 4 pieces.
  • Divide the crescent rolls and roll chicken in the rolls (you will not use but 4 of the rolls, so you will have 4 left over to cook for your bread) Place the chicken into a 8x8 casserole dish which has been sprayed with pam or buttered.
  • Place seam side down.
  • Heat soup, milk and 1/2 cup cheese in a small sauce pan until cheese is melted.
  • Pour over chicken bundles and then sprinkle the other 1/2 cup cheese on top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees until rolls are golden brown, approximately 20 minutes.
  • NOTE: I always freeze the water that I use to poach the chicken in 2 cup servings.
  • I then use this in the place of water in soups and stews.

    This was PURE HEAVEN!!!!!!!! OMG!!! We really enjoyed this!!! I did sub puff pastry and baked them first before adding the sauce. I just heated the sauce in the microwave, then poured it over them during the last 5 minutes. Topped them with a few mushrooms and wahlah!!!!!!!!! :) Very, VERY good recipe!!! (Oh! And when I poached the chicken, I cut it first, used a tsp. each of salt and pepper, and added 1 bay leaf.) It was DELICIOUS!! Kind of reminded us of chicken pot pie!!! TY so very much for this wonderful recipe!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Really simple and really yummy. I loved how easy this was. Very much in the comfort food category. The only issue I had was not baking it for quite long enough, some of the dough was still a little under-cooked. I would just do it for a few more minutes in the oven next time.

    I'll bet if you use your George Foreman grill it will add a "roasted chicken" flavor to an already great recipe.Some peas or broccoli under the cheese sauce will add a little color interest& fiber

    I am sorry, but this dish was way too salty. It almost contains a recommended daily sodium intake and saturated fat and is not good for people with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or CVD. The idea was great though.

    I loved this recipe! My boyfriend made it for me for a romantic dinner. However, he made a modification. Instead of using cheddar cheese he used Sargento Bistro Blends Mozzarella with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Basil. It added an excellent flavor to the recipe. I suggest using less than the amount called for though as it is a fairly strongly flavored cheese. And with the extra cheese we had, we sprinkled it onto the extra crescent rolls and baked them to go along with our dinner. Like GrandmaG, our rolls were doughy on the bottom. So next time, we will bake them a little bit before to get them done all the way.


<p>Well, in trying to make a few corrections on my about me page, I managed to delete all the banners I have had in the past.
