Haley's Home Cooking: Cheesy chicken crescents are an easy dinner the whole family will love

Once again, I found myself looking for a way to save time and effort cooking a tasty dinner. This recipe has been adapted from one my cousin taught me several years ago.

Make the shredded chicken ahead of time, or buy a rotisserie chicken at you local grocery to make this speedy recipe even simpler. I mean, who doesn’t love cream cheese?


Total time start to finish: 30 minutes

Makes: 12 crescents

You’ll need:

  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 pound of chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups mild cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 12 crescents, either homemade or store-bought — I used Pillsbury!
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a bowl, soften cream cheese until it can be easily stirred. 
  3. Add chicken, sour cream and one cup of the cheddar cheese, stir thoroughly.
  4. On a greased baking sheet, roll out the crescent rolls.
  5. Heap generous portions of the cream cheese mixture onto each crescent. (About 2 tablespoons)
  6. Roll or fold together the crescent, whichever way keeps the most filling inside.
  7. Top the folded crescents with the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the crescents are a golden brown.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!
