Pillsbury Crescents

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Dough Sheet
  • 8 chicken tenderloins (about 3/4 lb)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix Parmesan cheese and basil until well blended. Set aside.
  • 3
    Unroll 1 dough sheet; cut into 4 rectangles. Place 1 chicken tenderloin on one long side of each dough rectangle; roll up. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Place seam-side-down in baking dish. Repeat with remaining dough sheet and chicken tenderloins. Sprinkle with Parmesan mixture.
  • 4
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and thermometer inserted in center of chicken reads 165°F.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook whipping cream, tomatoes, salt and pepper flakes over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. Cover to keep warm.
  • 6
    Spoon warm sauce over crescent-wrapped chicken. Serve immediately.

  • Baking this crescent-wrapped chicken without sauce ensures that the crescents and chicken are fully baked.
  • Serve with a fresh Caesar salad for a complete meal.
  • Top with extra basil for a hit of freshness.
