    • You can use any fried chicken fingers that you have on hand.
    • I love the chicken fingers from the Publix deli!

What to Serve with Chicken Crescent Roll ups

These chicken roll ups are great for an easy lunch or dinner on hectic weeknights. They also make a great party appetizer. I always have the ingredients on hand to whip up a last minute meal. Serve the rolls with the extra marinara sauce or some ranch dressing for dipping. 

To complete your meal, consider serving these mouthwatering delights with a side of spaghetti or garlic butter noodles. The pasta will harmonize beautifully with the rich flavors of the rolls. For a lighter option, a side salad with creamy dressing can add a refreshing contrast to the warm, cheesy goodness. And if you’re in the mood for some veggies, green beans or roasted asparagus can provide a healthy balance to your plate. These sides not only complement the flavors but also turn your meal into a satisfying feast.

  1. I think I'll pick up some chicken fingers in the store deli to make these super easy with less cooking time.

  2. My husband LOVES these. I just use the Kroger brand chicken fingers – a lot cheaper than Tyson and just as tasty.
