I love cooking from scratch, like in this Homemade Chicken Pot Pie. But, there are times – many many times – as a mom of young children, when taking short cuts is a life saver. I love that you can take short cuts in cooking and still put something on the family dinner table that you feel great about.

This Chicken Pot Pie Crescent Braid is exactly that.

Tips and Tricks

If you can’t find seamless crescent roll dough, use the kind with the seams and gently push them together before you start cutting to make the braids.

If you would rather use homemade dough, you can use my pizza dough recipe for the outside. It won’t be flakey, but it will be delicious. Brush it with a little melted butter before baking.

If you aren’t sure how to make a crescent braid, check out the video that is in the recipe card at the bottom of the post. It shows you just how to get it done.

What to Serve on the Side

This is a great delicious recipe, but you will want to serve something on the side to go with it.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine the frozen veggies, cheddar cheese, and chicken. In a separate bowl mix together the cream cheese and the condensed soup. Add it to the chicken-veggie mixture.
  • Spread the crescent roll dough out on a silicon mat or parchment paper and place that on a baking pan. Leaving three inches in the middle, make cuts down the side of the dough an inch apart on both sides.
  • Spread the chicken-veggie-soup mixture down the middle of the dough. Take a strip of dough from one side and fold it over the middle mixture. Then take a strip from the other side and fold it over the middle. Continue down the dough, alternating sides until it is completely folded over.
  • Pinch the ends of the dough to keep the filling inside while it bakes.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes so that the top is nice and golden brown.
  • Let stand about 10 minutes before cutting in to it.

    Super easy and super delicious! Only did a couple of minor variations. Used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and used only about 1/2 that the recipe called for. Also added in pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. YUMMY! Definitely making this again.

  2. Lori says

    In the video it shows someone using an entire can of cream of chicken soup BUT the recipe says 1/2 cup. Which one is it? Thanks in advance!

    • Lisa Longley says

      It is 1/2 cup. I used the can just so people could easily see what product I was using.

    Awesome recipe! Tried making individual pockets and the braid… Don’t recommend while tired 🤭🙅🏽‍♀️🤣. Didn’t come out as pretty, but the girls absolutely loved it! So A+ in our book, C+ for me for craftmanship 🤦🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️😂.

      Ha! This comment made me smile, thank you Tanya!

    This is a favorite in my house! Sometimes I sauté chopped onions and celery for extra flavor, and I like green beans, corn, peas and carrots mixed. We never get tired of it! Thank you!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so glad to hear this Mary!

  7. John J. Souza says

    I made this recipe but I doubled it and made 2 at a time. It was delicious! I might try too cut back on the cream cheese I would like the mix to be a little thinner. John

    • Lisa Longley says

      Doubling it is such a great tip!

  8. Debbie B says

    I love to cook & appreciate all your recipes to try out.
    It’s nice having a variety of foods to eat.
    Thank you

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thank you so much Debbie!

  9. Ann says

    The recipe calls for frozen peas and carrots can I use canned instead? Thanks. Cant wait to try it.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m worried that canned will bring too much moisture to the recipe. I would drain them very very well and give it a try.

  10. Daryl Ann Gellinger says

    I think I will make this with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving this year. I’ve made a lot of “braid” recipes, this one sounds so good. Still trying to perfect the braiding part! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Lisa Longley says

      What a great idea Daryl!
