Recipe Notes
  • There's nothing like a delicious meal that can be thrown together with those regular items that you stash in your cabinet and refrigerator.
  • I always have canned chicken (mainly because I'm obsessed with my chicken salad recipe), shredded cheese, crescent rolls, and cream of chicken soup. 
  • Canned crescent rolls are so versatile. Of course, you can make them according to the package, but they can do so much more! Turn them into Quick Cinnamon Rolls
