Crescent Roll Chicken Bundles

Shredded chicken mixed with cream cheese, Italian dressing mix, and cream of chicken rolled into buttery crescent dough! These flavorful Chicken Crescent Roll Bundles have become a family fave.

This is one of the BEST and easiest dinner recipes using Pillsbury crescent rolls. The canned dough comes in handy when I’m in a pinch, and I can make easy meals like this one, pigs in a blanket, or spinach roll ups!

STUFFED CRESCENT ROLLS

I first had these bundles of deliciousness several years back when my assistant, Jezzy, brought them over. Her family had made them for us, and I couldn’t believe how flavorful and delicious they were. She said they were a family favorite and that they had been making them for years.

Her family calls them chicken pockets, but I’ve seen similar recipes called various things—chicken bundles, chicken stuffed crescent rolls, chicken crescent roll ups… Whatever you decide to call them, they’re going to blow your mind!

You can imagine that crescent rolls stuffed with shredded chicken, cream cheese, cream of chicken, and Italian dressing mix would be pretty awesome – and they are!!

a 30 minute meal!

This recipe only takes like 30-35 minutes from start to finish, which is perfect for our crazy busy family! That’s probably why we eat these so often – they taste like a 60 minute meal, but only take 30. 😉

GRAVY. Start by making the gravy mixture. Add cream cheese and both cans of soup to a medium pot and turn to medium heat. Add dressing mix and stir until well combined. Turn down to low heat.

FILLING. Pour most of the mixture into a large bowl, leaving enough in the pan to use as a gravy to put on the chicken bundles. Add the shredded chicken and the green onions to the large bowl and mix together. Set aside.

STUFF. Separate the crescent roll dough and place on a cookie sheet. Scoop a spoonful of chicken mix onto the crescent roll dough and roll (we fold the left side in, right side in, and then roll towards the long point).

BAKE & SERVE. Bake in the oven for 9-12 minutes. Pour remaining sauce/gravy mixture on top and serve warm.

Tips, substitutes and add-ins

Substitutes. Cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery soup can be used as an alternative for the cream of chicken soup, it is up to you and your preference. 

If you would like to substitute the cream cheese you can use plain Greek yogurt though it may alter the taste and texture.

Optional add-ins. Mix any of the following in with the chicken and green onions (up to 1 cup total of extra mix-ins).

  • Chopped spinach
  • Chopped broccoli
  • Celery
  • Green chilis
  • Diced Jalapeños

To make things even easier you can use the canned chicken, but I prefer to use chicken that was cooked in the crock pot and then shredded or even a rotisserie chicken. 😉

  1. I want to try these this weekend. Has anyone used cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken with mushrooms in place of the 1 can of chicken soup?

    1. Using a rotisserie chicken makes it even easier. I love it! I’m so glad your family enjoyed them. 🙂

      1. I made this. Very good but I had so much chicken mixture leftover and the sauce. Enough to make another recipe

        Can these be frozen cooked?

    Delicious 😋 recipe! I am anxious to try it again, next time with the optional green onions!

    1. Thank you! I’m a fan of the green onions… hopefully you will enjoy them in the bundles too!

    1. No, it probably just depended on how large you filled each roll. You could either stuff the rolls a bit more, or you could use another can of crescent rolls and make a few more until the mixture is all used up.

    I tried to make these, but I couldn’t find anywhere what temperature to bake them at? Just says bake 9-12 minutes. so needless to say they didn’t turn out.

    1. Hi Julie! Step one of the instructions says to preheat the oven to 375 degrees. So they will bake at that temperature for the 9-12 minutes (from step 8). You’ll have to give them another try and see how they turn out! 🙂

    2. Going to make today for my folks and I using rotisserie chicken and cream of celery cutting recipe in half for the 3 of us. Been wanting to to try.

      1. Ooh I love using rotisserie chicken in recipes when I’m in a hurry or have it on hand. Sounds like good substitutions. Hope you enjoy the bundles!

    I made this yesterday using canned chicken. Because it turned out too salty, next time, I will use home cooked chicken and low sodium cream of chicken soup. I really liked it except for the saltiness.

    1. Sounds like a good idea! You can certainly do that to adjust the sodium levels in the recipe to your liking. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yay! So glad to hear! They are a family favorite over here too. Thanks for giving the recipe a try.

  5. I made this. Very good but I had so much chicken mixture leftover and the sauce. Enough to make another recipe.

    1. The extra filling should last in the fridge for a day or so, if you wanted to make another batch. I haven’t frozen these before (because they usually get eaten too quickly), but I imagine you could freeze the filling in a freezer bag. Then thaw completely and fill in fresh crescent roll dough for another dinner another night.

    Can these be frozen cooked?

    1. You could freeze the filling and then just thaw and fill fresh crescent rolls when you are ready to have that meal again. That will yield the freshest roll. However, I haven’t tried cooking the full bundles from frozen, but you could give it a try. You could also roll them up and freeze, then thaw overnight in the fridge and cook in the oven the next day from thawed.

    I made this tonight. I only had cream of celery, so used that. I added a small package of real bacon bits and 4 oz of shredded pepper jack cheese.

    They were sooooo good! I think next time I’ll use the big crescent rolls. Or flaky biscuits flattened out and after the mixture is put on it, either fold it over or put another biscuit on top and seal the edges.

    Definitely pleased with how they turned out. Will be making them again.

    1. Yay!! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe. The addition of bacon and pepper jack sound delicious!

    These are so good!! My fiance and I make a double batch and freeze them. They are perfect to always have on hand. We like to add peas and carrots to them to incorporate some veggies in there as well. We end up using 5-6 cans of crescent rolls which is my only complaint about the recipe the first time around… I had wished I had bought more rolls for the amount of filling. Overall, super great for freezing and having on hand all the time!

    1. Thanks for your feedback! I love that you just make a large batch and freeze to have them on hand when you’re in need of an easy dinner! And adding those veggies in sounds delicious too. Thanks for sharing!
