Expert Tips

"Newburg" generally refers to a dish made with chopped cooked shellfish served over toast points. This more family-friendly version pairs the typical Newburg sauce, made from butter, cream and sherry, with chicken and uses refrigerated crescent rolls instead. If you prefer to twist the concept a bit more, you can use a different mix of frozen vegetables than the kind called for in this rich recipe.
