Creamy Chicken Crescent Roll Casserole is a homey and comforting classic perfect for feeding the whole family!
An Easy family favorite
One kind of dish we like to make that is usually simple and a hit with everyone is casserole. When you have a large family, like ours, it seems like you can’t go wrong with them and they tend to feed a lot.
They’re great for a last-minute meals, or even to prepare the night before to cook up on a busy day. We love finding new ways to make a boring dish fun and exciting.
I think this Chicken Crescent Roll Casserole is a new fun twist on a traditional chicken bake. It was really creamy and simple enough for the kids to enjoy too because all the ingredients are kid-approved (chicken, crescent rolls, cheese!)
It reminded me of the Chicken Crescent Roll Bundles we’ve loved for years, and if you love casseroles and the flavors of creamy chicken, (I mean, who doesn’t?!) then you’ll love this dish!
Making Chicken Crescent Roll Casserole
PREP. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
MIX. In a large bowl, mix chicken, and 1 cup cheddar cheese.
ASSEMBLE. One at a time, place crescent roll dough on a flat surface and add a heaping scoop of chicken mix. Roll up, starting at the thicker end, and pinch any openings to seal. Repeat with each roll. Set aside leftover chicken.
BAKE. Place rolls in a greased 9×13 casserole dish and bake at 375°F for 10 minutes.
SAUCE. While rolls are baking, heat soup, milk, sour cream and 1 cup cheese in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until cheese has melted. Keep warm on low.
BAKE. After 10 minutes of baking, remove rolls from oven, pour remaining chicken mixture around the rolls, top with sauce and bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove and serve warm. Enjoy.
Tips + Storing Info
Use cooked chicken breasts instead of rotisserie chicken if you’d like. If you need a good shredded chicken recipe check here. You could also make our easy oven baked chicken, cut it into cubes and use it in this recipe.
To change this recipe up a bit you could add the classic duo of garlic and onion, mushrooms, or even some chopped green onions.
STORE in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
REHEAT individual servings in the microwave and larger servings in the oven. After baking the bottom of the crescent rolls will be softer and the tops will get a little toasty from being exposed in the oven. But overall the rolls will be soft, which is why you don’t want to store them in the fridge for more than 2-3 days so they don’t get too soggy.
FREEZE any leftovers if you’d like. After baking, let the dish cool completely then wrap it tightly with plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil before freezing. This casserole should keep well frozen for up to 3-4 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then pop it in the oven at 375 for about 40ish minutes to make sure it’s warmed all the way through.
