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
  • Substitute you other favorite shredded cheese for cheddar, if desired.
  • Canned biscuits are a suitable substitute for canned crescent rolls. Flatten out the biscuit before filling.
  • It's ok if the filling spills out of these chicken crescent squares.  
  • Any other cream soup could be substituted for cream of chicken, if needed.
  • Try adding some fun fillings such as cooked broccoli or spinach.
