Convenient crescent roll dough turns into the pretty topping on this creamy casserole filled with chicken and vegetables. While it's baking, I prepare a simple salad and dessert. It's a nice meal for company, too. —Janet Aselage, Sidney, Ohio

"Get creative! Great dish as written but as a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I love twisting classic recipes to fit the occasion. Wonderful using cream of broccoli cheese condensed soup. Great dish that helped use left over poultry from the night before. Yummy!"

"I have been making this for my family since 1999 when it appeared in Quick Cooking. Everyone LOVES it! I have made it for neighbors as well. Occasionally I have added a can of mushrooms, drained and minced garlic for added flavor. For my family of 7 (including 3 teenagers), I usually double the recipe (except the crescent rolls) and still bake it in a 9x13...makes it a little thicker and we usually don't have leftovers! DELICIOUS!!! To answer the question about how it would be without the topping...I think it would work just fine. I just happen to love bread and can't leave it off."
