Crescent Chicken Cheesesteaks How-To

Crescent Chicken Cheesesteaks
These Chicken Cheesesteaks are easy, cheesy and delicious–great for a quick weeknight dinner. MORE+ LESS-
By Holly Lofthouse

I adore a good cheesesteak. There’s no other sandwich on earth that can compare! Bell peppers, onions, meat and cheese. The ingredients are so simple, yet the flavors are rich and satisfying. 

The steak versions are wonderful, but oh do I love a chicken cheesesteak. They’re a little bit healthier but every bit as good. The ones I am sharing today are undeniably delicious and super easy to make using Pillsbury® Original Crescent Rolls. With only 6 ingredients and less than 30 minutes, you’re on your way to one fabulous sandwich everyone will devour! 

Start by unraveling the crescent dough from the can. Seal together two crescent dough triangles to form one rectangle. You’ll have four rectangles total. Bake at 375° F. For 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, in a 10-inch skillet, cook the chicken, bell pepper and onion over medium-heat. Sprinkle mixture with garlic powder. Cook and stir for 12 to 14 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Take half of chicken mixture and spread evenly over one crescent rectangle.

Then add 2 to 3 slices of cheese over the chicken and vegetables.

Top with another crescent rectangle. 

Repeat process with the remaining chicken mixture and crescent rectangles. 

You’ll have two sandwiches total. Place sandwiches back on the baking sheet and into the oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Slice each sandwich in half and serve!
