Whenever I serve these, the entire tray vanishes so fast! Always have to double!


– 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent roll dough
– 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
– 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
– 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
– 2 tablespoons milk
– 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 1 tablespoon melted butter (optional for brushing on top)
– Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
2. In a mixing bowl, blend together the shredded chicken, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, milk, garlic powder, and onion powder. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
3. Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into individual triangles on a flat surface.
4. Spoon a generous portion of the chicken mix onto the wider end of each crescent triangle.
5. Gently roll the dough from the wide end to the point, ensuring the filling stays tucked inside. Place each roll up on the prepared baking sheet.
6. If desired, brush the top of each roll up with melted butter. This will give a beautiful golden glow and add extra richness.
7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until the crescent rolls are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped.
8. If you’ve chosen to garnish, sprinkle a little chopped fresh parsley over the hot roll ups for a burst of color and freshness.
