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.

    Love this. I’ve made it twice. So easy and tasty. I fried semi thin breasts which added to the deliciousness.

  4. Amanda Houle says

    I used mixed veggies instead of peas and carrots and it was delicious. I probably needed to cook just a little bit more as my crescent dough was a little doughy.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m glad you liked it!

  5. Linda Getz says

    What can you substitute cream cheese with. could you put alfredo sauce? My friend doesn t like red sauce, tomatoes, peppers, sour cream, cream cheese. any suggestions?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m worried that Alfredo would make it too runny. Cream cheese isn’t the overwhelming taste in this at all. I wonder if they would even notice.

  6. kim schwartz says

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Kim! If the instructions in the recipe card don’t help you visualize it, we have a video in the post that shows us doing it.

  7. Theresa says

    • Lisa Longley says

      Pizza dough or puff pastry would also work!

  8. Karen ODonnell says

    Could you use Puff Pastry instead of either the pizza dough or the crescent dough?
