Ingredients

  • 1 package 8 count refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 4 oz package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
  • 2 Hidden Valley Ranch original salad dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely cut celery
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup cubed grilled chicken

Instructions

  • Spread out crescent roll dough flat in a 9x13 inch pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 5 to 8 minutes; let cool.
  • Mix cream cheese, miracle whip and ranch mix thoroughly; add carrots and celery and mix well.
  • Spread the dressing and vegetable mixture over the cooled crust.
  • Sprinkle with chicken and shredded cheese.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • Cut into squares and serve.

Notes

  • This is a great way to use up leftovers of the Easiest Grilled Chicken Ever - just cube up a couple of already cooked chicken breasts. Or buy a rotisserie chicken and use that!
  • The "crust" of this pizza is a package of refrigerated crescent roll dough. Did you know they sell crescent rolls in sheets that are perfect for this recipe? You can also use a regular tube of crescent roll dough. Just be sure to spread it across the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan - the dough will be fairly thin so the baking time is fairly short, just 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Once the crust is baked and cooled, spread the topping so it almost touches the edges. Barbara suggests using a flat-bottomed spatula for spreading the cream cheese - the same tool used to ice a cake.
  • Then top it with the cubed grilled chicken and shredded cheese (what about some bacon too?) and refrigerate it overnight.
