5 Ingredient Italian Chicken Crescent Roll Bake

Any meal that I can throw together on a whim using minimal ingredients with prep time less than ten minutes is a win for me. I find myself using homemade and fresh ingredients most of the time, but I don’t fuss about the occasional boxed mixes and meal helpers (as I like to call them).

So in this 5-ingredient Italian Chicken Crescent Roll Bake, I had several meal helpers: homemade spaghetti sauce (freezable and .37 cents per serving) and packaged crescent rolls. I’m thinking that this meal *could* be freezable, which would be an added bonus because you could make several pans of these ahead of time and freeze.

Chicken Breasts topped with Spaghetti Sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil and then covered with crescent rolls!

I used fresh basil from our garden and next time I make this I’m going to add a few cups of zucchini. The homemade spaghetti sauce that I make does have ground beef in it, so if you’d rather make this meal with meatless sauce or jarred spaghetti sauce, I would recommend adding several cups of veggies to soak up the sauce or it will be a runny mess.

Chicken Breasts + Spaghetti Sauce + Fresh Mozzarella and Basil + Crescent Rolls. 5 Ingredient Meal.

5 Ingredient Italian Chicken Crescent Bake

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 1/2 – 3 cups spaghetti sauce
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
1/2 cup fresh basil
(1) 8 oz. pkg. of crescent rolls

(optional topping:) 2 Tbls. melted butter, sprinkle of garlic salt and parsley

  1. Place the chicken breasts (pound thin if they are very thick) on the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
  2. Cover the chicken with the spaghetti sauce, then the cheese, followed by the basil. (a sprinkle of ground pepper is good here)
  3. Lay the crescent rolls flat over the top, covering the whole pan.
  4. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. (If the crescent topping is getting too brown, cover with foil)
  5. (Optional) 10 minutes before finished, melt butter. Brush over the crescent rolls and sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley.

Italian Chicken Crescent Roll Bake. So easy and only five ingredients. Chicken breasts, spaghetti sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil topped with crescent rolls. It's even better brushed with a little butter and garlic salt.

The Small Indulgences + A Luscious Fall Lookbook

This summer went by so fast and I can’t believe my kids are already off to school tomorrow! It’s been eight months since my kids came home on Christmas Eve, which seems unbelievable. Tomorrow, they will start a new chapter at a new school. They are all in first grade, in separate classes, which makes it harder for me with conferences and homework and such, but it’s for the best.

These summer months have been quite stressful for me, just for the simple fact of now having three 6/7 year olds. I knew it was going to be a long summer when that first morning of summer break I heard, “I’m bored!”

I’ve been focusing on a few things lately to get me out of a rut: small indulgences and to live beautifully.

Small indulgences mean for me, something small and simple that bring great pleasure. As a work-at-home mom I am often torn between errands, putting the house back together, getting the kids to and from school and of course, work. Sometimes I forget about those small indulgences that bring me a little joy, but for the next few months I’m going to make them a priority.

A coffee in the morning, a lunch date with a friend, a pedicure, a new shirt, or vanilla bean ice cream with a sea salt caramel swirl dipped in a golden chocolatey coating. Say what?!

Gold dipped Ice Cream

Yes, my friends I have found the sweetest indulgence ever. As you can see, this is a gold-dipped Magnum ice cream bar. They even have these cute little, mini ice cream bars which is the epitome of a blissful, small indulgence.

Mini ice cream bars!

And remember when I said I wanted to live beautifully? What I mean by that is focusing on a few small changes (maybe actually changing out of sweats and putting a real outfit on?) and that will affect my confidence, stress and mood as a word-at-home mom and a mom to three seven year olds.

I’ve put together a cute fall outfit based on the beautiful Magnum ice cream bar colors (Yes, I just called an ice cream bar beautiful). White and cream colors from the Magnum white and pops of gold from my favorite: the Gold.

Neutrals + Gold

 

Indulgences never felt or tasted so good. You love enjoying your sweets, especially when you look so good eating them! Magnum is the most premium, sophisticated and indulgent chocolate and ice cream experience imaginable, made with Belgian Chocolate, created with pleasure seekers in mind.

How we look can directly affect how we feel. As a mom to three I often feel like gray hairs are sprouting up daily (and my kids don’t hesitate to tell me that my hair is turning white)! Since I am a stay-at-home mom, I am typically in sweats and my kids have now noticed that I only wear makeup on Sundays. I attribute my frumpiness to stress, but what if I tried to live more beautifully? Would I be less stressed? Be more productive? Be in a better mood? Here are:
