Crack Chicken Roll-Ups Recipe

Crack Chicken Roll-Ups - heaven in a pan! The most requested chicken casserole in our house. Chicken, cheddar cheese, bacon, and ranch dressing wrapped in crescent rolls and topped with milk and cream of chicken soup. Use rotisserie chicken and precooked bacon for quick prep! These are on the menu at least once a month! Everyone gobbles these up - we never have any leftovers.

The BEST Crescent Chicken Roll-Ups

Chicken Roll-Ups are one of my all-time favorite meals. My mom would make them when I was growing up and I've continued making them as an adult. I have several versions on the blog (I linked to all of them below the recipe), but these Crack Chicken Roll-Ups might just be my favorite version! Chicken, cheddar, bacon, and ranch wrapped in crescent rolls and topped with cream of chicken soup. I could honestly eat the whole pan myself. SO good! We ate these for lunch, and I finished off the pan for dinner. I couldn't help myself!

How to Make Crack Chicken Roll-Ups

These Crack Chicken Roll-Ups are super easy to make. Chop up some chicken and mix it with cheddar cheese, cooked bacon, and Ranch dressing. Top crescent rolls with the chicken mixture and roll up and place in baking dish. Top the crescent rolls with a mixture of cream of chicken soup and milk and bake.

The number one question I get about any of my Chicken Roll-Up recipes is "Do the crescents get soggy?". No, the crescent rolls aren't soggy, but they aren't crispy like they are right out of the oven. They are soft on the bottom and the tops do get a little brown.

To cut down on prep time, I like to use rotisserie chicken and precooked bacon. I buy both in bulk at Costco. I will also mix up the chicken mixture the night before and assemble the roll-ups when we are ready to bake them.

Can Crack Chicken Roll-Ups Be Made in Advance?

I haven't made this casserole in advance and refrigerated it overnight. I am sure it would be fine one night in the refrigerator. You can also freeze the baked casserole for later. To bake from frozen, thaw completely and either reheat in the microwave or covered in the oven until warm. I think it would take about 30 minutes in the oven to reheat the Crack Chicken Roll-Ups.
