My son had this at a Christmas party this year and thought it was so good he had to have the recipe.  We made it this week and it definitely is a keeper.  He said I put too much cheese on top from what he remembered, so maybe next time I make it, I will I will put half the cheese inside and half on top.

  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (8-oz.) can sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 (4-oz. can sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (8-oz.) pkg. crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, optional

Saute celery and onions in a large pan in 2 tablespoons butter until soft.  Add chicken or turkey, soup, water chestnuts, mushrooms, mayonnaise, and sour cream.  Heat mixture until bubbly.  Put into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Separate crescent rolls in 2 rectangles and lay over top of mixture.  Sprinkle cheese and almonds over top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

Serves 8.
