Top with remaining can of Crescent Rolls. I don’t press the top “blanky” down. I simply roll out and then gently put on top and gently stretch over the toppings. Pinch together any big gaps but don’t worry about little openings.

Bake at 375 for 20 min. Watch to  make sure the top doesn’t burn. Remember the Chicken is already cooked so you don’t have to worry about the chicken being done.

I also sprinkled Parmesan Cheese on top before putting into the oven…but that’s totally optional.
