Easy Chicken Crescents Recipe for Dinner


Chicken Crescents RecipeChicken Crescents are a delicious way to prepare chicken for dinner, or even lunch.  I always serve my chicken crescents with vegetable sides like cream corn, green beans, steamed veggies, etc.  You may wish to liven up the meal by adding a spicy sauce side instead of the milder plain or steamed vegetables.  Ranch Style Beans are a fabulous side with Chicken Crescents.

Making this recipe is easy.  You simply mix the ingredients together and roll them up in the crescents.  After you lay them in a blanket of cream of chicken soup, you top the crescents with cheddar cheese.  Then bake for only 25 minutes.

You will note that the total time to prepare this dish is listed as 2½ hrs.  A large portion of the time is used for boiling, deboning & shredding the chicken breasts.  Cooking and preparing the chicken breasts can certainly be done the day before in order to cut down on the time needed to prepare dinner.
