We have a whole file devoted to Appetizer recipes or Finger Food recipes. But the one recipe that is usually at the beginning of the file is these Chicken Crescent Rolls or Crescent Chicken Bundles. (we call them both) These Chicken Crescent Roll-ups or Chicken bundles are an easy crescent roll chicken appetizer recipe. Its a Cheesy chicken mixture baked in Crescent dough.
We have been making these little Chicken Crescent Rolls since, well forever. But it’s odd, since the big move to the Ranch, I couldn’t find the recipe for them, I thought they were in the file but I searched our recipe box and they were not there.
I had to text my daughter and she sent it over to me, I am so happy I shared it but I’m still worried about what else I am missing. I visualize a huge crate of miscellaneous items that have yet to be unpacked or does that huge crate only contain this one little recipe?? I wonder?
Anyways, these are a hearty appetizer and look like a regular bread roll until you bite into them and all the gooey cream cheese and chicken is revealed and that makes them extra special in our book.
The potions of these Crescent Chicken bundles are bigger than the average appetizer recipe but you could make them smaller by cutting the crescent roll dough into 16 pieces instead of the standard 8.
These appetizers are a little different than the norm but we know you and your family or guests will enjoy them.
This an easy crescent roll chicken appetizer recipe that is great for cocktail parties, game day celebrations or Sunday Brunch.
