Chicken Roll Ups


This is one of my all-time favorite dishes.  My mom made these YEARS ago when I was in high school and I LOVED them! I have been making this dish for myself since I was in college. It is simple to make and really good!  I could eat the whole pan myself!





Chicken Roll Ups
(Printable Recipe)

  • 6 oz cooked chicken breast, chopped

  2. How far in advance can you make this? Could I prepare in the afternoon for my family to bake in the evening? Since I work nights I am always looking for something to make ahead for them! Thanks!

  3. Krystal - I think that would be fine.

    You wouldn't want to make it days in advance. The crescent rolls won't rise properly. You would want to bake it and reheat it in that case.

    Hope you enjoy it!

  4. What type of cheese would be best to use for this? And when you say mix the soup, are you talking about just the condensed soup or the condensed + 1 can of water soup?

  5. Courtney - I like to use cheddar cheese. There is no water in this recipe. Just mix together the soup, milk and cheese.

  6. Made these last night. They were really good. tasted like a deconstructed pot pie. I think that it would have been a lot better if there were some peas and carrots in there somewhere. I think next time I will mix it in the chicken soup mix before I pour it on top.

    1. I would say 3-4 people - just depends on how many rolls everyone eats. This makes 8 rolls.

    2. I'd say this is more of an appetizer. 4 people if they each eat 2. Definitely won't fill them up, though. If you want it as a main course, I would recommend at least 4 for each person, with some pasta on the side.

    3. I made it last night with the large Grand crescent rolls. One each for the ladies with two vegetable sides was fine. Hubby did eat three! Also, I sprinkled pepper and Tony's creole seasoning to top, because that is how I roll with my rolls!

  9. Definitely going to have to pin this one so I can make it for my hubby. I definitely second adding peas and diced carrots, maybe a little chopped shallot and finely chopped celery. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You need to pre-cook the chicken. The only thing the 30 minutes should be doing is cooking the rolls and melting the cheese.

  13. I made these last night and they were delicious! I have a family of 6, so I doubled the recipe. I only made 3 minor additions: I seasoned my chicken while cooking it, added in the green chilis (suggested above) to the chicken as it was cooking, and then topped the final product with a thin layer of shredded cheese (in addition to what was in the mixture) before it went in the oven. I also used the large crescent rolls since it didn't say. They looked small after they were rolled up, but they of course expand. There was plenty for everyone, with leftovers, and even my pickiest child said they were "heaven". They are all asking me to make this again. Thank you for a great recipe!

  14. My mom used to make these as well and I love them! The only difference I saw was hers called for 1 tbsp mayo and shredded cheese to be mixed with the chicken before putting it in the crescent roll.

  16. Made it tonight. But for some reason. Was really salty. Does anyone know what may be causing it? It's really good though.
