I’ve been trying to come up with creative ways to use the excessive amounts of crescent rolls in my fridge. Around Thanksgiving the opportunity came up to purchase crescent rolls at Kroger for about $.40 a can, and…I became a hoarder of crescents. It’s amazing how many recipes you can find on Pinterest involving that one ingredient. I found a few that sounded great, and by combining several, came up with one that seemed like a winner:
1 can of crescent rolls
about 2 cups of cooked shredded chicken
small can of chopped green chilies
cream of chicken soup
Roll chicken, cheese, and chilies in each crescent and pinch close. They will look sloppy, and not like your typical crescents. Line them up in a 9×13 greased pan. Heat the cream of chicken and a can of milk until it’s smooth and pour over the rolls. Put in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
In theory, this recipe seems like it would taste great. Unfortunately, the chicken part was less than appealing. It tasted, for lack of a better word, old. Princess, who normally will eat anything, completely snubbed the concoction. The chicken used was cooked (by boiling) on Sunday. I’m not sure if it was because the cooked chicken had been in the fridge since Sunday night (today’s Tuesday), or because it was a mixture of dark and white meat (chicken pieces were leg quarters), or because I just don’t know what I’m doing.
I will try it again, after all, there are lots of crescent rolls that need to be cooked. Just gonna keep working on the best way to cook the chicken. Any suggestions?
