    Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles; cut each triangle into thirds. Place in 4 rows of 6 on top of chicken mixture in an overlapping pattern.
  • 5
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until crescent top is deep golden brown and casserole is heated through. Cover with foil last 5 minutes of baking, if necessary, to prevent overbrowning. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with cilantro leaves.

Expert Tips

Having a hot casserole base is important so crescent dough bakes all the way through.

If desired, top with sliced green onions, chopped tomatoes, diced avocado or sour cream.
