This is an easy, comforting casserole to make on a cold night. It's from the Goodness Gracious cookbook.
3 cups cubed, cooked chicken
1 can (10 1/2 oz.) cream of chicken, celery, or mushroom soup
1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, sliced and drained (sometimes I don't use the whole can)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (8 oz.) package crescent roll dough
2/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2-4 Tbs. melted butter
Preheat oven to 375. Combine the first eight ingredients in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat until hot and bubbly. Pour into an ungreased 12 x 8 baking dish. Unroll the crescent roll dough into two long rectangles. Place over the hot chicken mixture. Combine remaining ingredients and spread over the dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Serves 4-6.
Note: You can make this healthier by using low fat or fat free soup, mayo, sour cream, and cheese. Also, if you're in a pinch and don't have time to cook up some chicken, you can used canned chicken, those pre-cooked chicken breast strips in the deli section at the store, or a rotisserie chicken from the store (just cut off the breasts, remove the skin, and cut it up).
