roasted chicken crescent bake

I love crescent rolls y’all!

Just like my marshmallow puffs, and my cinnamon roll-ups, they’re so guuuwwwd!

This is so so so so so so sososososososososo easy, but I thought, I’m going to share this with y’all in case no one else had thought of it either.

I felt so *Rachel Ray-ish*, bein’ all good and using up my leftovers!

So here’s how it all went down.

I had some chicken.

I added some salsa, and enchilada sauce.

I put it in the crock pot.

One night I made tostadas.

Then I had alllll this chicken meat I forgot about.

Being resourceful, and loving crescent rolls, I thought “I’m going to make an open faced chicken roll-up!

Step One. Roll the crescent dough into a pan.

Step Two. Dump chicken meat onto dough.

Step Three. Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake. Eat. Repeat!

Easy as pie y’all.

Now, I’m moving and couldn’t find my big glass pan, so I just folded the excess dough over the last third of chicken, so those people eating will get a stuffed chicken sandwich. Actually, I made those once too, GOOD!

Y’all kids are going to love making this! Assign one of y’all’s little children to make this one night next week! I should’ve made this with my cooking club three years ago. *Sigh*, miss that.

~Peace, Love, and Crescent dough y’all

    Speaking of Rachael Ray…she’ll be at Book People in Austin next week. I’m thinking of going, except it will probably be crazy crowded!
