Ingredients That You’ll Need:

  • Refrigerated crescent rolls: Normally, they are located between the dairy and frozen sections of the grocery store.
  • Cooked shredded chicken or turkey: Rotisserie, canned, or leftover turkey are all great options.
  • Can of cream of chicken soup: In this recipe, I typically choose the original variety, but you can also use reduced-fat or fat-free varieties. The filling will have a less creamy consistency if you use fat-free, but it will still taste good.
  • Cream cheese: It is possible to use reduced-fat, but I do not typically use fat-free because I dislike the taste and texture.
  • Packet Ranch seasoning: You can find this product near the salad dressing.
  • Shredded cheddar cheese: Chicken Stuffed Crescent Rolls can be made with either bagged shredded cheese or shredded by hand.
  • Sour cream: This recipe works well with full-fat sour cream, but reduced-fat is also acceptable. I dislike the taste of fat-free sour cream and do not recommend it.
  • Black pepper
  • Egg: If brushed on top, the egg gives the broth a golden exterior.

Additional Add-Ins

Here are some of my favorite extras for Chicken Stuffed Crescent Rolls:

  • Peas, frozen, of course: Just rinse and add 1/4 cup to the mixture.
  • Bacon Crumbles: Has your mouth just started to salivate? That’s great!
  • Cheese: Add some extra cheese, such as mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan.
  • Celery: You should try it! Celery has a nice crunch and gives it texture.
  • Bell Pepper: Why don’t you try it with a red or yellow bell pepper?
