Whenever one of the local grocers has their big 10 for $10 sales that includes things like Cream Cheese and refrigerated Crescent Rolls, I love to stock up. I make ALL KINDS of main dishes and desserts with these handy items. Here is one my kids LOVE.
1 (1/2 C) stick butter, divided
1- 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp minced onions
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
3 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 box stovetop stuffing
2 cans cream of chicken
1/2 C chicken broth or water
Grease jelly roll pan. Melt 1/4 C butter. Add in cream cheese and mix on high until well blended. Add in garlic powder, onions, and chicken; mix well. Set Aside. Melt remaining butter in microwave bowl. Pour stuffing mix in second pan or bowl. Unroll crescent rolls. Press two crescent "triangles" together to make rectangle. On each rectangle, place spoonful of cream cheese mixture. Roll up, and tuck ends under. Roll in butter and then generously coat all sides in stuffing mix. Place on jelly roll pan. Bake @ 350 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Mix 2 cans soup, thinned with water or broth. Heat in microwave 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Pour over roll-ups. Serve warm. Yum!
*This is one of those recipes that you can substitute what you don't have with what you do. For example, if I don't have minced onion, I use onion powder. I have also used half regular cream cheese and half chives & onion flavored cream cheese, and omitted the spices. I have also used canned chicken (drained) and it taste just fine. Instead of 2 cans of cream of chicken, the sauce is also good with 1 can being the cream of chicken and the other 1 can being either cream of celery or cream of mushroom. Give it a go and see if your family enjoys it as much as we do!
