Cheesy Chicken Crescent Bundles are golden baked crescent rolls that are stuffed with a rich and garlicky chicken, parmesan, and cream cheese filling.

I made some baked chicken this past week and intentionally made and extra piece so that I could use it for another recipe.  A while back, my step-mom had suggested a recipe like this one over on The Two Bite Club Facebook page and I decided it would be perfect for the leftover chicken!  (By the way, if you're not a Facebook fan yet, hop on over an give us a like so you can join the conversation!)

Because I was using cooked chicken, this recipe came together in no time at all and it was super easy to make.  It would be perfect for weeknights when you need to pull something together after a busy day.

The end result is a flaky crescent roll outside and a hot, rich, cheesy inside.  They're totally filling and the kids loved them, too!  My daughter especially.  I always love when she tells me her dinner is delicious.

If you're making these for more that three or four people, you'll want to double the recipe.  My kids split one and my husband and I each had one.  My husband is sick though, so his appetite is a little lacking.  I think he would have normally eaten two.  Either way, I think you'll love these.  Quick, easy, filling and delicious.  What's not to love?!

Yield: 4 bundles

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 of a small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cups parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
  • 1 (8 ounce) tube refrigerated crescent rolls
  • salt and pepper

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Saute the onions and garlic in the butter over medium-high until the onions are translucent.  Add the cream cheese and milk to the onions and garlic and stir until the cream cheese is melted.  Remove from the heat and stir in the shredded parmesan cheese and cubed chicken.  Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Unroll the crescent rolls and separate the dough into four rectangles. Pinch together the center diagonal seam of each one.  Place the crescent rectangles onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Spoon an equal amount of the chicken mixture onto each of the the crescent rectangles.  Pull the sides and the four corners of the crescent rolls over the filling and twist to seal.  Pinch together any open seams.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Notes
  • I served these with some roasted carrots and a salad.
  • Some broccoli mixed into the filling would be delish!
  • Leftovers?  These would be great in a lunchbox!  They taste just as good cold.
