Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 lb), cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrot
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced fire-roasted or regular tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (8 rolls)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken, onion and carrot; cook and stir about 7 minutes or until chicken is browned and no longer pink in center. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, parsley, cilantro, paprika, salt, cumin, cinnamon and red pepper. Cook and stir about 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  • 2
    Into ungreased 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish or 9 1/2- or 10-inch deep-dish pie plate, pour hot chicken mixture. Immediately unroll dough over chicken mixture; pinch edges and perforations to seal. Brush dough with beaten egg; sprinkle with almonds.
  • 3
    Bake 18 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown. If desired, garnish with fresh cilantro.

  • We offer two amounts of cinnamon. Ease into Moroccan flavor with 1/4 teaspoon, or use 1/2 teaspoon for authentic taste.
  • Add 1/4 cup chopped, toasted, blanched almonds or raisins to the chicken mixture for added flavor and texture.
  • Be quick putting the casserole in the oven so that the dough gets done on the bottom.
