I've been making this recipe for years and it is a family favorite. It is difficult to get the seams entirely sealed shut with so much filling in them, so I finally started using two cans of crescents with one recipe of the chicken filling. I also skip the butter and crumbs on the top. I find that making sure that the crescents stay refrigerated until the last minute makes them easier to handle and seal as well. I even leave the second roll of crescents in the frig until I'm ready for them. This makes a really quick meal if you use canned chicken breast as well--two 5 oz. cans is perfect. I'm not a huge fan of canned chicken, but with the other ingredients added to this dish, it works well. I also seal mine by bringing the opposite corners up to each other more like a pinwheel. I like that presentation better--but that's just personal preference ;) This is not the healthiest meal I make, but I just don't make it all the time. My family is always happy when they see it on the table though!

I cooked the the chicken with butter after marinating it with Dijon dressing, a small amount of ranch, about two cloves of garlic, and creole seasoning, I cooked the mixture into the chicken. Then followed the recipe. I used garlic bread crumbs on top and it turned out amazing. I think next time I will use 2 crescent packages and make smaller rolls instead of pockets because the crescent roll exterior seems too thin to support the heavy mixture inside.

I love this recipe. I skip the onions tho and add fresh spinach into the cheese mixture. You really can play a lot with what you add in the filling... Endless options!
