Turkey or chicken stuffed rolls are a tasty way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, but also work for a quick weeknight meal!
The holidays are upon us. I wanted to update and re-share this fantastic recipe for leftover turkey or chicken. It's quick, easy and can be made ahead. You can get them all ready to bake and refrigerate them and bake them later. That is totally a plus for me. If you aren't big on cream of chicken soup you can also top this with chicken or turkey gravy.
Before I make the turkey or chicken filling, I open and unroll the crescent rolls so they can warm up a little bit making them easier to fold up when I'm ready. I also buy the "big" crescent rolls because they work so much better. The filling is just cream cheese, butter, chopped up turkey (or chicken) and sauteed mushrooms and green onions.
Each crescent roll needs about a ¼ Cup of filling in it.
Fold each crescent roll shut and pinch the seams closed. Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes. The crescent rolls should be golden brown. While these are cooling slightly, thin a can of cream of chicken soup with milk until it has a thick sauce consistency (it will thin out once heated). Heat carefully in the microwave and serve over the hot turkey rolls.Print
