Chicken crescent roll ups are one of my family’s very favorite meals! Warm crescent rolls filled with fresh chicken and melted cheese; these roll ups are simple to make and they taste delicious!
These chicken roll ups are so easy to make, they’re perfect for a busy day. Other recipes I like to make when life gets busy are Chicken Tetrazzini, Ham and Potato Casserole or the Chicken and Mashed Potato Bowls.
Chicken Crescent Rolls
If you’ve never tried chicken crescent roll ups, you are in for an amazing treat! Chicken crescent rolls are warm, doughy, soft and filled with tender chicken and melted cheese! These are so good, my kids are usually still eating more once my husband and I are finished.
There are a lot of variations of this recipe, and I am sure they are all super yummy! I have a similar recipe from my husband’s aunt that I have loved for years, but I recently tried this version from my friend and it was fabulous. The only change I made was that I left out 1 carton of fresh mushrooms, chopped. You can add them if you’d like, but I am not a mushroom lover!
How To Make Chicken Rolls Ups
You’ll start this chicken roll recipe by mixing together some shredded chicken, cream cheese, and chopped green onions. Once combined, place a spoonful of the chicken mixture onto the longer part of your refrigerated crescent dough. I like to use the Pillsbury crescent rolls but any variety should work great.
Roll the dough by bringing the sides in to cover the chicken mixture.
Continue rolling until you reach the end of the dough.
Roll each raw ball through some bread crumbs, then place onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until golden brown.
Once they are done baking, drizzle with some delicious chicken sauce and sprinkle with a few more green onions. That’s it!!! This crescent chicken seriously tastes sooooo good!!! Give it a try and invite me over for dinner. I’ll bring dessert!
How To Store This Recipe
If you have any of these delicious chicken roll ups left over, you’ll want to store them in the refrigerator inside an airtight container. They will be good in the fridge for at least 5 days. I wouldn’t recommend making these ahead of time and freezing them because I’ve found the flaky crescent rolls just aren’t the same after they’ve been reheated. However, if you have a lot of leftovers and don’t plan on eating them in the next few days, I would freeze them and save them for later.
