Marlie Scott and Samantha Burfiend
For Marlie Scott, Chicken Biscuit Rolls were a favorite while growing up. Scott said the items weren’t an everyday meal, so eating them was definitely a treat. According to Scott, serving them with mashed potatoes is ideal. Her husband, Michael Scott, doesn’t like food to mush together, and he dislikes most sauces for this very reason. So, she was a little worried he wouldn’t like this recipe because of the chicken inside mixing with cream cheese. But, he absolutely LOVED them.
Scott said the recipe is super simple. The only thing she forgets sometimes, is that the chicken needs to be cooked before making these. Consumers can use canned chicken, but Scott does not recommend it. A consumer could also use Rotisserie or any other pre-cooked chicken and shred it if they do not want to bake it time-of for a quicker meal. Scott usually doesn’t use canned cream soups, but this recipe calls for the gravy. Scott prefers to make her own chicken broth, and uses The Cookin’ Chicks recipe for gravy!
1/3 cup crushed croutons
3 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoon softened butter
3 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded, cooked chicken
1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups chicken broth
Simple Chicken Gravy recipe
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cook chicken and shred it (can easily be shredded by placing chicken breast in KitchenAid or hand mixer).
- First, combine cream cheese, softened butter and pepper. Then add chicken and mix well, but do not overmix.
- In a small bowl, place crushed croutons.
- In another bowl, place melted butter.
- Open crescent rolls and separate into eight pieces along lines.
- Place one-eighth of the chicken mixture onto small end of each piece of dough and individually roll pieces, tucking sides in so it won’t fall out.
- Place each roll into butter, then croutons, coating completely.
- Put each roll into a cookie sheet.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
- While rolls are cooking, prepare gravy.
- You can place rolls in gravy right before serving, or top each roll with the gravy.
