Easy to make! It’s simply shredded chicken mixed with cream cheese, mushrooms, and diced onion all rolled up in a delicious, buttery crescent roll.

Ingredients

• 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cooked and shredded) • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened) • 2 tablespoons onion (diced) – optional • 1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms (drained) • 2 (8 ounce) packages crescent roll dough 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix together cooked chicken, softened cream cheese, onion, and mushrooms.

Roll out your crescents, place a heaping spoonful of chicken mixture on wide-end of crescent and roll it up. May need to stretch the crescent out a little. Don’t be messy. Lol.

Place on large cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes (watch for the rolls to turn golden).
