  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large saucepan heat cream of chicken soup, milk and 4 ounces of the cheese over low heat. Meanwhile, separate crescent rolls into triangles. Place some chicken onto the large end of each roll and top with a little cheese. Roll up and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour 1/2 of soup mixture directly into the baking dish, not on top of the rolls.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until rolls rise slightly and are lightly browned.
  4. Pour the remaining 1/2 of the soup mixture into the dish, laying any leftover chicken meat on top, and sprinkle with any remaining cheese. Return to oven until rolls are browned and cheese has melted.

I love this recipe! It's super easy and quick! I do make some changes, instead of cooking the crescents and sauce together, I cook the crescents chicken and cheese alone (bake until golden brown), then make the sauce to pour overtop or put on the side of the roll. That way you can have it as soggy or as flacky as you would like.

I just don't get the 5 star ratings. I made this exactly as described and I did not care for the recpe. The bread was nice and brown, not too soggy, lots of sauce, chunks of chicken etc. and with all of this it still managed to be very bland. My husband immediately got up to get seasoning to add. My kids wouldn't touch it, not even my 18 month old who loves everything (I mean, she ate an entire bunch of chopped chives last week, for pete's sake). I would have thrown out the leftovers (and there were plenty) but my husband said he'd take them for lunch. It wasn't awful, just bland, and for the amount of fat and calories here, I wasn't going to eat bland AND fatty food. Needless to say, I won't try again.

I've been making this dish for years! It is my husbands favorite! The only change I make, is I use boneless, skinless chicken breast...boil them in water until no longer pink then shred. I enjoy the taste with white chicken much better. You can also just get a can of chicken breast for an even quicker dinner.

I cooked the chicken crescents without the soup mixture and heated the soup mixture on the stove and poured that over the rolls right before we ate them. Wonderful!

Turned out better than expected! I used only 1 can cream of chicken and 1 1/2 cups of milk. I also added broccoli and used 8 grands crescents instead of regular and used the rest as rolls on the side. It turned out great!

I make this often and my family loves it. I only use one can of soup, one can of milk, and I dont roll the crescents as the bottom seem to get soggy. I typically use chicken breasts, season with some garlic powder, salt, pepper, whatever I feel like - nothing fancy. Add a little water and cover and cook over medium heat until cooked. Shred with forks. Mix chicken with soup, milk, and cheese until blended and add to baking dish. Layer the crescent roll dough on top and sprinkle cheese on top and bake until crescent rolls are browned.

We did not like this. I ended up throwing it away and fixing the kids some sandwiches. I chose this recipe because it sounded really quick and we had to leave with little notice. The cooking time was way off-the rolls were still doughy. I honestly think they will always be soggy with all that soup on them. I have only made a meal 2 or 3 times in my life that we absolutely couldn't eat and this one falls into that elite catagory.
