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 am in love! I have seen versions of these before but this recipe looks the best! Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is total comfort food and I know my kids would devour it! Crescent rolls just make me so happy. 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    My family really enjoyed these! I used homemade crescent rolls and three cups of chicken. The recipe makes a lot of sauce, so next time I may just make a half batch of the chicken broth/cream cheese mixture and use two cups of chicken instead of three.

    Thank you very much for sharing this delicious meal!

    1. I can’t seem to remember how many triangles are in one can, but you could just half the recipe, using only one can. Hope you like them 🙂

      1. There’s 8 triangles in a can, and my husband loved them! We just had a little leftover filling. Thanks!

    1. No such thing as a stupid question 😉 No, you just follow the instructions exactly and add it with the cream cheese. It almost makes like a gravy consistency. It’s yum! Hope that helps and hope you like it!

    1. Maybe about 20 minutes from start to finish? The bake for 9-12 minutes. Hope that helps!! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I would only keep them a few days in the fridge & I have not tried freezing them, but they may work just fine 🙂 You could keep them maybe a week in the fridge, after that I personally throw it out.

  4. 5 stars
    We love these. I also roll them in some bread crumbs before baking to give them a little crunch. So delicious!

    1. You probably could, but I would maybe add the sauce on top until right before you bake. That should help prevent it getting soggy. Hope you enjoy!

  5. Hmmm..I have not tried that, but I would maybe look to see on the package how much it makes, if you were to make a dressing with it, then you that same amount. Hope that helps 🙂

  6. Hi. CAN i wrap these up the night before or morning oF a party and cook them later? Would that work or would they get too soggy before baking? Thanks.

    1. I haven’t tried that. They might, but honestly can’t say, since I haven’t made them that far in advance. I would think the morning of would be ok 🙂

  7. 5 stars
    Just made this tonight and I’m making it a regular!! Soooo good. Even my picky eater, who likes things as PLAin as POSSible, scarfed down a couple of these!

  8. I would Use about half of the dressing packet, this was way too salTy and the whole filling concoCtion became very gummy.

  9. My daughter was making chicken bundles last night and they sounded so good that I decided to get the recipe. You have some easy recipes. There is only one of me now as my husband died in September. Do you think the bundle recipe could be halved and still taste as good?

    1. I am sorry about your hubby 🙁 Yes, you could always half a recipe & it would still be great! Thank you so much!

  10. Thank you so much for posting the nutrition facts with the recipe. But I cannot find a serving size listed — do you know that? I am guessing Maybe two of the pockets?

    1. It doesn’t get golden like the tops, but it doesn’t get super mushy either. It might get a little mushy, but not all the time. Just depends if sauce gets on the bottom. They are super yummy. Hope you try them!

  11. 5 stars
    tHIS TURNED OUT PRETTY GOOD! i ADDED CORN AND PEAS, TO KICK UP THE VEGGIE NUTRITION AND INSTEAD OF MAKING INTO CRESCENTS, I MADE A BIG SQUARE OUT OF 2 – THAT WORKED GREAT!! i’LL DEF MAKE THIS AGAIN!

  12. 5 stars
    I have made these before and you can also use Tuna with spinach or asparagus. I have also used puff pastry I make 2 inch strips fill 1 half then fold it over and seal edges.

  13. Could I add the italian mix and cream cheese and cream of chicken soup in Crock pot with the chicken and then cook it on high for 4 hours?

    1. You can add the Italian mix and cream of chicken soup to the Crockpot with the chicken and cook it on high for 4 hours but add the cream cheese in small chunks 15 minutes before the 4 hour mark and mix together with everything. Cream cheese will curdle if it cooks for too long at high temps so adding the cream cheese 15 minutes before you are done cooking will ensure a smooth sauce for your chicken bundles.

    I just had to laugh. Someone said something about making it with the ranch dressing. I thought that is what it said to do! I guess I read it wrong. I have to tell you that it tastes great made with the ranch dressing mix! Next time I will try it with the Italian!! Haha

  15. 5 stars
    So easy and delicious! I used 3 rolls crescent dough as there was so much of the filing. My family really likes these

  16. 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. 🙂

  17. 5 stars
    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! 🙂
