These rolls are effortless to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a medium bowl, toss together barbecue sauce and chicken tenders.

What to Serve with BBQ Chicken Crescent Rolls

These BBQ Chicken Crescent Rolls are the best! They are great for a quick lunch or dinner or as a game day party appetizer! Serve the rolls with your favorite dipping sauce. We like extra ranch dressing or give our Jalapeno Ranch Dip a try for an extra kick!

To create a well-rounded meal, consider serving these rolls with some crisp, vegetable sticks such as carrots and celery. Their freshness provides a refreshing contrast to the tangy barbecue sauce. A side of homemade coleslaw or a simple green salad. And if you’re looking to make it a heartier affair, some french fries or baked beans would be a fantastic choice. No matter what to serve alongside these crescent rolls, they are sure to be a hit with the whole family!
