Easy Crescent Chicken Roll Ups

These Crescent Chicken Roll Ups are truly a “favorite family recipe”. I believe our Mom originally got this recipe from our Aunt Lana. We would always beg for this meal when we were kids! It is a VERY quick meal and is definitely a husband/kid pleaser! There is something about the combination of flaky roll, savory chicken, and creamy sauce on top that makes this meal totally irresistible!

Add Some Flair

If you aren’t working around picky eaters, and you want to add something to this dish, there are plenty of possibilities! One of my favorites is adding cooked bacon crumbles and diced mushrooms to the chicken filling mix. You could also add a little cayenne pepper to the mix to make it spicy! I’ve also seen people add a ranch dressing mix packet to the chicken mix. We use crushed croutons for the breading to make this meal a little quicker but you could make your own breading using Panko bread crumbs, oregano, grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. You can also mix things up with the side dishes you serve with this meal. Check out some of our ideas below!

    These are good and so easy! Somehow, they are even better reheated the next day. I’ll definitely be making this again and again and again.
