Chicken Parmesan Crescents

I am about to tell you some very important information.  The day after I made these pockets, "The Mr." already requested them again.  WHAT?  That doesn't happen too often around here.  There are a lot of dishes I make that he really really likes, but he almost never requests it again the NEXT day.

These were extremely good.  AND did I mention there are only six ingredients?  All you do is bake some breaded chicken tenders, dip them in sauce and roll up in a crescent roll with some cheese.  It might seem like there is too much sauce and you might worry that the bottom will get soggy, but mine do not.  The bottoms bake up exactly as they should.  

If you are still worried about it, you could always roll up the chicken and cheese in the crescent and serve the sauce on the side for dipping, which I have also tried.

I have now made these several times and we love them.

My favorite chicken tenders are Tyson Panko Breaded Chicken Tenders from Costco.   They are large enough that you can cut them in half and fill two crescent rolls.   
Chicken Parmesan Crescents
(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)

1 pkg. crescent rolls (8 per package)
4 breaded chicken tenders, baked (I like Tyson Panko Breaded Tenders)
8 small slices Cheddar or Mozzarella Cheese
1 jar spaghetti sauce, warmed
1/2 tsp. Johnny's Garlic seasoning (or garlic powder)
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

Cook chicken tenders according to package directions.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Unroll crescent rolls and separate into 8 triangles.  Place a small slice of cheese on the wide end of each crescent.  Cut each chicken tender in half and dip in spaghetti sauce; let excess sauce drip off.  Place each chicken tender half on top of the cheese and roll up each crescent.  It will be messy and might seem like it's not going to work, but it will.  Place each rolled up crescent onto a lightly greased baking sheet.  Sprinkle Johnny's Garlic seasoning and Italian seasoning over the top of each crescent.  Bake for 13-15 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.  Serve extra spaghetti sauce on the side, for dipping.  Serves: 3-4.      

Jenn's Notes: I have used both regular crescents and jumbo crescents and both work fine.  I used jumbo crescents in the pictures above.
