Tried & True: Crescent Chicken Bundles

This is one of my family's all time favorites that I posted early in the life of this blog!! My husband and I argue about where this recipe originated from, but that really doesn't matter, because it is easy and  DELICIOUS!! It so deserves a second  post! 
Crescent Chicken Bundles
original post here

2 cups cooked chicken, diced
2-3 stalks of celery, diced in small pieces
1/2 cup diced olives
2 cans refrigerator crescent rolls
1 small onion, minced
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese
Mix all ingredients together. Roll out crescent rolls. Place a small amount of mixture on the large end of the crescent.
Roll up the top and sides around the filling. Continue to roll the dough up. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. 
 Bake  at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  Until  lightly browned.
Make a gravy out of the following:

1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Cream of Chicken Soup
1 tsp. chicken bouillon
1 soup can of water
Bring to boil and simmer until gravy like consistency.
Serve gravy over top of the rolls.

*As you can tell I renamed this recipe because I could not figure out how to get the filling to stay in the roll if made into a crescent shape. That is why it is a bundle. I try to wrap the dough around the filling right from the start.

 There are better directions for rolling the dough in the original post!!


  1. These sound delicious. Iam new to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Those sound really good. You are making me miss the way I used to eat. I now eat bread made with no yeast and no sugar.... when I eat bread which is not often.

    I have never done the chicken in a crescent roll but used to do hot dogs in them. I bet beef would be good too.

  3. I bet that is a huge hit with the family!!♥

  4. This sounds so good! I need to try it soon!

  5. These look and sound wonderful! Totally my kind of comfort food! :) Gotta give these a try soon. A recipe worth a 2nd post? You bet I'm going to make it. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Sunday.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
