This cozy, flavorful entree takes a classic recipe and makes it super easy! I like to cook the chicken a day or so ahead of time to make it even simpler to throw together on busy nights. —Kerry Dingwall, Wilmington, North Carolina

  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 3 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped

  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard, divided
