This is one of the best things we ate last week. We both absolutely loved this - for several reasons. I loved how simple it was to make. Chicken Legs loved that this didn't dirty up the kitchen! (I cook, he cleans) We both loved this because it was really tasty!
This only took a few minutes to assemble, and, in less than 30 minutes, we had chicken parmesan. I used frozen chicken tenders because they were BOGO at Publix recently. (That is Buy One Get One for those of you who don't know - like my mother and husband) I did not thaw the chicken strips before I made this. I just let them bake in the oven fully assembled. To make clean up easier, I put the spaghetti sauce in a saucepan to dunk the chicken strips and then just heated up the leftover sauce in the same pan. You are welcome Chicken Legs.
Chicken Parmesan Crescents
- 8 fully cooked fried chicken fingers (I used frozen Tyson crispy chicken strips)
- 8 slices mozzarella cheese, cut in half
- 1 can crescent rolls
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce
- 6 oz cooked pasta
Preheat oven to 375.
Separate crescent rolls into 8 triangles. Pour sauce into a bowl or saucepan. Place one half slice of mozzarella cheese on top of crescent roll. Dunk chicken finger into spaghetti sauce and place on top of cheese. Roll up crescent and place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken fingers and crescents. Sprinkle each roll with garlic powder.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and top each crescent with remaining half slice of mozzarella cheese. Bake for additional 5-8 minutes. Meanwhile, heat leftover spaghetti sauce and toss with cooked pasta. Serve pasta with crescents.
