Crescent Roll Chicken Potpie

So, with my family when I cook a whole chicken, we always have leftovers. Do my boys want rewarmed chicken … nope they do not. So leftover chicken is always in a leftover makeover meal. I will use it on salad (for myself), make chicken salad with it (again for myself), or turn it into a whole other meal to use it all up. This time I made a different version of a potpie.

Crescent Roll Potpie is full of shortcuts to make life easier. For this one I used the sheet of crescent roll dough. The next time I will be going back to the normal crescent roll dough. I didn’t like how the rectangle puffed, but that is a personal preference.

On the stove top I made the filling. It started with a very finely diced onion and butter. Cook that until tender and golden. Then you add flour mixed with salt and pepper and cook it for a few minutes to make sure you don’t have any raw flour flavor.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Then you add in the chicken stock and milk. Once that thickens up you add in the diced cooked chicken and frozen veggies. Then you add in the parsley. Dump that all into an oven safe dish. Top with crescent roll dough and bake according to the crescent roll directions. Normally about 10-12 minutes.
