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

A family friend first made these Crescent Roll Chicken Bundles when I had a baby. They were so delicious, I had to get the recipe.

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!!

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. 😉

    I have made these twice and theyre too wet. The amount of filling to the crescent roll is too much. I even cut down to one cream of chicken and it didn’t turn out. Maybe my crescent rolls are just to small

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      Thanks for the feedback and for giving the recipe a try!

  2. Marianne Richardson says:

    These are one of my family’s favorite meals. I make my gravy from the chicken broth I cooked the chicken in. Start with cream of chicken soup and sour cream, then add enough chicken broth to make it the consistency you like. So good!!

    Made these for the family before church and they loved them. Despite burning my finger on the pan I’ll Definitely be making them again. Thank you so much!

    So delicious and a family favorite for sure! I have found I’ve had to almost double up on the amount of Cresent rolls I need. I’m not complaining about eating more of these though!

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

    This is really pretty good! I added a sprinkle of sharp cheddar cheese before I rolled them up. I also baked them at least 13 minutes if not a little longer. I don’t like uncooked dough lol. My husband is a picky eater and he liked them! I used the whole mixture with only half the chicken and 1 pkg of dry mix (which is 1.5 TB) and made only 8 rolls. Thanks for the recIpe!!!

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      You’re welcome!! Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try and for sharing what you did. Glad to hear you hubby approved too! 😉

  7. Hope Lay says:

    Shouldn’t the recipe say 2 pkg of Italian Dry Mix? I pkg is actually 1.5 TB not 3. It’s either that or it should say 1.5 TB.

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      Thanks for pointing that out. We’ll check and update the recipe card!

    Per your suggestion I added the spinach. Not only were these fun to make, but they were a hit with the entire family. Thank you for always having great recipes.

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      You’re welcome! I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe!!

    Delicious, easy comfort food. Served with mashed potatoes and a veggie.

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      Sounds tasty!! Glad to hear you enjoyed!

  10. Judy says:

    How much is a serving? Any idea what the cholesterol count is?

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      I’d say about two of the bundles is a serving size. Not sure on the cholesterol count!
