Chicken and Cream Cheese Crescents

This is an old recipe. I think my aunt was the first to make it for me. It's so simple and so delicious. I've had these pictures for a while and I decided to finally post the recipe. If you love cream cheese, you will love this. I have to say though, they are very addicting...

Chicken and Cream Cheese Crescents


2 "rolls" refrigerated crescent rolls (you can also use biscuits or your own recipe)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 large chicken breast, cooked and diced or 1 can chicken, shredded (I prefer cooking my own)
3 green onions, chopped


Preheat oven according to roll package directions. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, chicken and onions until combined. Lay out crescent with large end facing you. Put about 2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture in center of large end. Fold large sides in and around the mixture and then roll it like you would a crescent (I hope that makes sense). Put finished rolls evenly apart on greased baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven according to roll package directions, or until golden.
These are great with a nice green salad.



  1. I have to say that if you want to dress this up a bit use puff pastry instead of crescent rolls and add some bacon. My kids love this no matter how I make it. I also make a chicken gravy to go on top! Kristin F.

  2. P.S. I do use mushrooms and garlic salt!
