With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Chicken Salad Crescent Rolls

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Chicken Salad Crescent Rolls

During an impromptu visit with Jamie, she sent me home with a leftover, lemon pepper Rotisserie chicken she picked up at the grocery store.  After making sandwiches the first night, I pulled off the meat and simmered the bones with veggies for stock knowing I would make Cream of Chicken Soup for dinner the next day.

I have several standby recipes for leftover chicken, but this time decided to make a basic chicken salad as a filling for a can of crescent rolls that have been in the fridge.
Comforting soup and yummy crescents to warm on a chilly and rainy spring day.

Chicken Salad


2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
squeeze of fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise
fresh herbs (I used chives, parsley and small amount of Rosemary)
Salt and pepper to taste

Gently toss all of the ingredients together until combined.

Can be served on a plate of lettuce leaves, on a Croissant or bread of choice.

To make Chicken Salad Crescent Rolls, spoon a scant 1/4 cup of the chicken salad onto each triangle and roll-up.  Bake on baking sheet @375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. (I had more than enough filling to make 8 roll-ups)

What a great idea to make that into a hot crescent roll. I would never have thought of that. You have WONDERFUL recipes here, Lorraine, and I have used several of them. xo Diana

EMMA said...

That looks delicious! We don't have crescent rolls here, are they like flakey pastry or more of a bread thing?

Susan said...

Hello Dear LDH....Your tribute to your Mommy was quite heart-touching. I'll bet you cried when you wrote it because the love in your heart, and the missing her, came right through. Beautiful. I'm sure she read it all from the other realm of life.

The bedroom set is SOOOO pretty, too. Thanks for sharing.

And each of your "babies" is soooo precious. Take care and a most blessed Mother's Day to you! Susan

Dawnye7 said...

Michelle said...

The boys in my family would love this! I will have to save it! Thanks so much for sharing and I am a new follower! Hope you have a great weekend!

Just a little something from Judy said...

This chicken salad contains the exact ingredients that I think make a delicious chicken salad. Now thanks to you, I can make my own with your recipe. Thank you!

I feel the tears running down my face, as I read the post about your dear mother. You did such a beautiful, kind tribute. What a lady! I am sure today will be difficult for you. I just said a prayer for you as you go through the day. I clearly remember the first Father's Day after my dad went to heaven, and how painful it was. Thinking of you on this Mother's DAy!

Maple Lane said...

What a great idea. John will love this with a mug of soup. We have had quite a few rainy, cool days lately.
