  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup milk cream or half & half
  • 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup peas defrosted if frozen
  • 1/4 cup corn kernels defrosted if frozen
  • 1 tsp onion flakes
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • Onion flakes
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 small can crescent roll dough approximately 4-oz, such as Pillsbury's


  • Heat the butter in a large mug in the microwave until melted, about 20 seconds.
  • Whisk in the flour, using a fork, to make a paste. Then whisk in the milk or cream, followed by the broth. Mix in chicken, peas, corn, paprika, onion flakes, salt, and pepper.
  • Unroll the crescent rolls and lay two or three of them across the top of the mug to make a crust, leaving a small amount of space between them so that steam can vent.
  • Cook for 3 minutes or until the top is puffy and lightly browned, as shown.
