3-inch round cookie cutter
14ouncesCampbell's Cream of Chicken Soup with Herbsit comes in 10.5-ounce cans, so you will need 1 full can and 1/3 of the second can
3packages Pillsbury Crescent Rolls - Seamless Dough Sheetyou will use probably 2.5 cans
1CupChickencut into small pieces- I used Costco Kirkland Brand pre-cooked chicken strips or rotisserie chicken would work great.
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Spray your muffins tray with non-stick spray.
Lay the crescent roll flat and cut out 12 rounds
Press them in the cupcake pan along the bottom and up the sides
In a large bowl mix the soup, thawed vegetables and cut up chicken
Spoon the filling mix into the cups - be careful not to overfill - it will bubble up while cooking
Using a pizza cutter, cut strips of crescent dough to cover the top of the cups - I did 2 across each way - so four strips total per cup.
Bake about 18 minutes - until top and sides are golden brown. If the top gets too brown, cover it with foil until the bottom is cooked. I used a knife to peek along the side of the cup to check to see how cooked the sides were.
Let cool and then use a knife to loosen and lift out of cups.
TIPSDough: If you don't feel like messing with cutting the dough, you can substitute biscuits that come already cut up. Just place one in each muffin hole and press it along the edges and stretch it up to the top to make a cup. The biscuits will turn out a bit firmer texture than the crescent rolls.Chicken: We like to make it easy so we used pre-cooked chicken breast. You can also shred up a rotisserie chicken or used some leftover boneless chicken breast.Filling the cups: You don't want to overfill the cups with the soup mixture or it will bubble over and make a huge mess. I used about 2 tablespoons or so.Removing the muffins: I found taking a knife and loosening them along the edges helped make them very easy to remove from the muffin tray.
