Cooking Time20 min
- 3 cups cooked chicken, diced
- 1 cup cooked broccoli florets, chopped
- 1 (15-ounce) jar garlic Alfredo sauce
- 1 (8-ounce) can crescent rolls
- 1 1/2 cup Italian blend shredded cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, gently mix chicken, broccoli, and between 1/2 jar to 3/4 jar of Alfredo sauce together. Set aside.
Place triangles of crescent roll dough in dish about an inch apart from each other. Larger ends of triangles should be in the middle of the dish while the narrow tips should be hanging off the side of the dish by several inches. Spread each piece in the bottom of the pan until you are able to seal edges together and create a crust.
Sprinkle one cup of cheese onto dough. Spoon broccoli chicken mixture evenly onto crust. Spread a thin layer (about 3 tablespoons) of Alfredo sauce on top.
Gently pull tips of dough over the mixture until the tips touch in the middle. Sides of the tips should not touch one another. You should see the mixture peeking through the spaces between dough tips.
Top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with basil.
Bake, uncovered, for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Note from the Editor
Recipes that are impressive, delicious, and easy to make can be very difficult to come by, which is why I was so pleased with this recipe. Since I already had chicken in the freezer that I had already cooked and shredded, making this recipe was an absolute breeze. Plus, I love Alfredo sauce so I couldn't wait to try this recipe.
Since this recipe only has a handful of ingredients it is easy to play around with the amounts; you can use less chicken, try a different flavor of Alfredo sauce, or even add mushrooms to switch it up. I didn't have quite enough chicken, so I ended up using a lot more broccoli and sauce, and it turned out great!
This recipe would be perfect if you have unexpected company, because the ingredients are so easy to keep on hand. The sprinkle of dried basil on top gave this dish a touch of class as well as wonderful flavor. I recommend serving this chicken casserole with a side salad or your favorite steamed vegetables.
