Chicken Crescent Rolls

If you’ve never tried chicken roll ups, you are in for an amazing treat! Chicken Crescent Rolls are warm, doughy, soft and down-right delicious!

There are a lot of variations of this recipe, and I am sure they are all super yummy! I have a similar recipe from my husband’s aunt that I have loved for years, but I recently tried this version from my friend and it was fabulous. The only change I made was that I left out 1 carton of fresh mushrooms, chopped. You can add them if you’d like, but I am not a mushroom lover!
